Well that theory went out the window at dinnertime last week.
After I passed out the plates to my hungry, hungry hippos, I took a taste. (straight from the cooking spoon nonetheless...) Embarrassingly enough, I then lapped up that Great Value brand Spirals mac and cheese like a rescue cat would when given it's first fresh taste of warmed milk at the SPCA.
To make matters worse when Katelyn and Olivia both announced that they wanted more, I had to guiltily admit to the fact that there was no more. "Mommy, you ate it all?" was Katelyn's response. "Yes, Katelyn. Your pig of a mother with no control over cheesy goodness finished off the box of mac and cheese that was supposed to be your nutritionally-sound, well-balanced evening meal. Would you like some applesauce instead?" So not cool, I know.
But I have to say, it was good while it lasted. It's a rare occurrence in this house when all three kids enjoy eating the same thing. And clearly they were enjoying themselves. Look:
And no, I was not paid in any way, shape, or form by Walmart for this blog post. I'm just sharing with the world that I have a child-like love for mac & cheese and I was pleasantly surprised with the fact that the $0.57 box of Great Value brand Spirals mac & cheese turned out to be sinfully delicious.
