Anita Discovers Easy Mac (with some help)

Peter: What are those?
Salesman: Well that’s a pair of red, flannel feety pajamas.
Peter: Good lord.
Salesman: See, they got a flap that opens up in the back.
Peter: Are you telling me I could be pooping and warm?
Salesman: Exactly.
Peter: No longer will I have to make a choice between the two. Sir, here is a check with my name on it. Write down any number on this piece of paper and I will pay it.

I can have mac and cheese and its done in 3 and a half minutes? I love Kraft Mac and Cheese boxes, and I am ashamed to admit it, but I can polish off a box by myself. I do remember when Easy Mac first came out and I thought to myself… microwavable mac and cheese? That can’t be good at all. So I never gave it a chance. Well, 10 years later I found a friend that is addicted to the stuff. So one day when she made a cup, I shared it with her. It was delicious! It actually tasted like the boxed mac and cheese that you boil. According to wikipedia (yes, I read up on it), an average adult will eat two cups of Easy Mac since I am assuming one cup is meant for a kid. But at 220 calories a cup, its a pretty good afternoon snack. Way better than the 266 calories in a snickers bar.

One thing that does concern me and I need to learn more about is that on the preparation instructions it says “Note: You will see loose white powder in Pasta. This is necessary for proper cooking.” I know that Easy Mac isn’t the healthiest food to begin with, but what could this mysterious white powder be?

  1. You *should* be ashamed, not that you eat the whole box but that you eat that crap at all. I swear that junk is the worst part of child rearing. Mmmmm, I can picture the warm, oozy goodness of homemade baked mac & cheese with that creamy white sauce with buttery breadcrumbs on top… Now I’m picturing the sight and smell of electric yellow vomit on dried out mini noodles. That white powder, like most of the ingredients in that box, is corn derived imitation food product. I thought I knew you.
