Okay first off, my apologies for using the word “ain’t”. Trust me, it was EXTREMELY difficult for me to type. And yes, I’m literally sitting here obsessing on having it in the title. I know it’s there for ‘effect’ but it’s DRIVING ME NUTS! It goes against my very nature to use it let alone to ever utter the word out loud in a sentence.
So the past 4 or 5 days I’ve been feeling pretty crappy and not really having an appetite. Trust me, my thighs and butt were greatly appreciative of that regardless of what my stomach grumbled. I was reviewing one of our Facebook discussions regarding comfort foods when you’re sick. A lot of people mentioned Mac ‘n Cheese. Now if you grew up like I did, that blue boxed mac ‘n cheese was prevalent in your home. Um yeah, it was good when I was 5, not when I’m well … extends her fingers and begins to count… um yeah, let’s just say I’m “many + 5” 🙂
I grabbed my all time favorite noodles for mac ‘n cheese, Cavatappi and opened up the fridge to forage for cheeses. Yes, I pretty much have an entire cheese drawer. I LOVE cheese (well except goat and bleu – and anything that smells as foul as they do). Then I looked up and my eyes got all doe-eyed and a smile formed on my lips. There, on the top shelf, in the way back was a forgotten can of jumbo lump crab meat. As I pulled it down a fear settled on me.. “Oh no! What if I forgot about it and it’s expired?!” First I’d be furious as it’s NOT CHEAP at all and 2, well… I hate wasting stuff!
WOO HOO! Still have 7 months left on it. Hmmm… really? That stuff doesn’t expire quicker? *shrugs* Oh well.. go me!
So I got to cooking and picking through the meat for shells.
Now Mr. Fantabulous gave the “Meh, it’s okay” comment but that’s to be expected. He doesn’t like Mac ‘n Cheese and isn’t a big seafood fan. So sad, too bad.. MINE MINE MINE!!!
Just look at that cheesy crust on top!
It was soooooo creamy and ooey gooey good!
I want this for breakfast tomorrow…. and lunch… and dinner and for a snack 🙂
Now if you’ll excuse me… I gots to go get my grub on 🙂
