It's small, I know. But when my kids dove into the rigatoni-butter-parmesan noodles I prepared like it was the best thing to happen to lunch in weeks, I was thrilled.
Last week I'd made another box of weekly mac and cheese (various brands and noodle styles tried), only to have none of it touched. They must have just gotten burned out on the stuff, even though we don't have it THAT often...do we?
Small victories with small stomachs is always a satisfying thing. When it's a homemade meal that took possibly less work than tearing open a box of mac and cheese, it's even better.
