Mmmmm.  Bacon and tomato shells.  If you are like us, you eat a lot of macaroni and cheese.  The kids love it, will eat it without complaints and it is quick and simple to make.  But, we are so tired of it… macaroni and cheese is usually a quick meal for us when things are crazy or it is the weekend.  Awhile back, I tried to start creating more “adult versions” of typical kid fare and this mac and cheese hits the mark.  So, go ahead and open that box of creamy goodness… make the adult version.  You’ll be glad you did.
