You know that crazy excitement I had about that recipe the other day? Well, I did make it to the store on the way home last night and attempted it. I made four fatal mistakes all involving the Mac end of the equation. First, I bought fancy high fiber macaroni. Next, I decided to make the whole box all at once (doubling the recipe – I was hungry, OK?) Then, I somehow overcooked it. Lastly, I decided to finish making it anyway.
The end result? A huge (massive!) vat of mushy tasteless goop. I could have cried. Maybe I did. Suffice it to say that a good $10 of ingredients made it into the trash. I’m glad I didn’t start tallying points for my good choices until today. I would have been heavily in the red!
