I changed my mind. 

I'm having to drink a minimum 64 ounces of water a day for a test and I'm freezing.

So...

Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.

It feels so good when it's right out of the pot.  Warm going down.

Hi Mar, Last week when Hurricane Sandy was in full force I was texting one of my coworkers back and forth. We have many beautiful very large trees in Park Ridge so it was a little scary. We were both lucky not to lose power. Our texts:
Kristen: I'm so scared the wind is awful and things are flying around the backyard.
Me: Yes, I'm scared too. It makes me sad because the trees I love are now scaring me!
Kristen: I just made a box of Kraft Mac n Cheese for dinner to help calm my nerves!
Me: I'm having pastina cooked in broth.
Kristen: We're both so predictable!
There's nothing like much loved comfort food!

      Oh man, we have to find this.  Thank you!

      We've eaten at Joe Jost's. I agree, the bread is so good. so good.

       
      Totillie,  I just realized that there is a label on the cracklin bag.
       
      The name of the meat market with the tacos is:
       
      El Pacifico Meat Market

      1473 Atlantic Avenue
      Long Beach, CA 90813
       
      There is an exit on the 405 just after the Long Beach freeway exit (heading south)

        Dinner last night was Parmigiana di melanzane. I had mine with a side of linguine while lleechef had a salad with hers. I've eaten a lot of eggplant Parmigiana over the years, much of it in fine restraurants and the homes of extraordinary cooks. Still, I'd always considered mine the best I'd ever had. As much as I hate to admit it, lleechef's blew mine out of the water.
         
        Tonight she's making veal piccata.

          Good Lord, that's the exact same thing I had last night also, and the veal tonight too...Not!

              Tonight is the ultimate in simplicity....the weather today was unseasonably warm in St. Louis, in the 70's, so we are eating on the patio....we are starting up some logs in the firepit, roasting hot dogs over the fire with the kids, served along with sides of mac and cheese and baked beans.  Just like camping.  And for dessert...toasted marshmallows and Smores.  I might have a beer or two, also...    Might be among the last times to do this in shirtsleeves or a light jacket.
               
              Tomorrow night, grilled trout from last months' trip to the Ozarks...with rice pilaf and a Greek salad...

                Recently, Bob's kosher friend has been bringing us some awesome veal patties from a Kosher butcher in Milwaukee. Tender as all get out, and the breading has a hint of nutmeg.I just bake them( they would not be good with sauce and cheese) and we so enjoy them.

                    This is my first time to post, so let's see if I can get this right. I'm from Texas, transplanted to New Jersey (work in Philadelphia) to marry my Philly born and raised husband. We don't discuss football.
                    Coming from TX, I was very familiar with hurricanes and tornadoes. Sandy blew through my 5 acre farm here in south jersey without major damage, but we drove to Tuckerton to check on our boat at the marina, and it brought back memories of Katrina and Rita.
                    This is just to introduce myself. I love the Italian food here and I've adapted, but miss my TexMex, so I cook a lot of TX food.
                    Tonite is Tuscan Chicken breasts and eggplant rollitini. I will see if it's pic worthy in a few hours.

                      Will be having homemade meatballs and pomodoro sauce on crusty bread.  It's cold here in NoCal (at least in our definition)!

                        Welcome NJ/Texan!
                         
                        I think you'll need a minimum of 30 posts (hope to see a lot of them) and maybe a month of being a member before you're able to post a picture.
                         
                        Don't let it scare you away. I'm waiting for the pictures!  Love Tuscan Chicken.
                         
                        How do you make yours?
                         
                        I do mine with a whole chicken.  Put cut lemons inside and garlic, rosemary and olive oil under the skin.
                         
                        Thanks for the idea as I haven't made that in some time.

                          Thanks for the insight, Mar. I would have gotten frustrated trying to upload!
                          I use chicken breasts, pounded just slightly to even them out, and sauté with a sliced fennel bulb, fresh rosemary, garlic, chicken broth and parsley. It makes a great sauce too.

                            Last night I salted some chicken thighs and marinated them with some store-bought pesto.  Sometime this afternoon I'll put them on the grill over indirect heat and I believe Mrs. Chicken is planning to fire up the bread machine.

                                Nice lunch out of a small steak. My vegetarian partner went to our local farmer's market afterwards and bought a a small bunch of baby beets and plans on roasting them and the greens for dinner. I think I will have crackers.

                                  It's been a day. I'm doing Kraft mac & cheese, with added cheddar, sour cream and tuna. And I'm going to eat it all myself, right out of the pan.

                                      I know all about eating the entire box by myself.  Hope you're feeling better.
                                       
                                      I took my mother to her favorite Chinese Buffet.  Let's just say she got her money's worth. 
                                       
                                      Went to the grocery store and on the way back to her house she wanted to stop at McDonald's for a sundae.

                                            That is VERY cool! I'm glad he not only ate, but apparently enjoyed it!
                                             
                                            mar...I like it with tuna. I added some mushrooms, too. Today was a memorial tribute at one of the local theatres for a good friend who passed away in September. My state of ick is more emotional than anything else. It'll pass.

                                              Greg, that looks good.  Thanks for serving our country.

                                                It's been a day. I'm doing Kraft mac & cheese, with added cheddar, sour cream and tuna. And I'm going to eat it all myself, right out of the pan.
                                                Did you at least use some utensils?

                                                  Today is back to my Texas roots - slow cooked pinto beans and sausage, and Mexican cornbread. The cornbread has a layer of cooked meat, cheese and onion - almost a meal itself. Also made a pumpkin-pecan pie. turned out great.

                                                          I made a pot of chili a couple weeks ago, and in order to not get too "chili'd out", I made some Kraft mac and cheese (with some added cheddar and sour cream) and put some of the hot chili on top of it. Really hit the spot.
                                                           
                                                          Tonight I'm having pan roasted chicken breast (on sale for $1.69 a pound, so I'll be eating chicken all week) in salsa verde, with green beans and beets on the side.

                                                            ChefBuba - TOO FUNNY! I made King Ranch casserole, and these northerners thought I was some kind of genius. They didn't realize it's on every school cafeteria menu in TX. They also were dazzled by broccoli-cheese and rice casserole. You seem to know about my brand of cooking - I brought Frito pie and Frito/Ranch Style Bean salad past the Mason/Dixon Line too.
