In my pantry today:
- 1 box Kraft “Sharp Cheddar” macaroni ‘n cheese
- 1 c leftover Chappli-seasoned matpe mix
Now I’m not a big fan of anything that comes in a box, but who among us wasn’t raised to love a Kraft dinner? Oh, you over there… are you raising your hand? Well, Homeland Security will be at your doorstep momentarily. Terrorist.
The leftover matpe gunk is much the consistency (both of texture and of protein value) of ground beef or sausage, just without the added fat content. The Chappli seasoning mix works well with the squeeze-it-out cheese — better than anticipated, in fact. This was a nice combination of comfort and adventure food.
