Hey Hey Hey Fridaaaaaay! How you doin’?

FOUR reasons why Fridays are awesome:

One. We all clock out way before 5. Right, right? Don’t worry, your boss does, too. In fact, because I AM the boss here at Diethood headquarters, and the only employee, I clock out on Thursday…

Two. Netflix all night long!

Three. Saturday doesn’t have to start until I feel like it. Tomorrow, our Saturday will start at 10 a.m. Why? Because I said so. And because Netflix kept me up until 2 a.m.

Four. Mac ‘n Cheese for din din!! Pizza can wait.

Sometimes the simplest things are the most satisfying. For instance, Macaroni and Cheese. How simple, yet so darn good!

Since you and I haven’t had a one-pot pasta in a while, I wanted to share my latest too-many-after-school-activities-can’t-fix-dinner-night din din invention.

You know, I am not one to turn to a drive-thru on a busy night. That’s almost a big no-no around here. BUT! I can totally understand if you do. Completely understand. Seriously. The pressure of doing all these after school things is ginormous, so I feel ya.

BUT BUT BUT. I can kinda help you here. See, if I could, I would prepare this One Pot Spinach & Feta Macaroni and Cheese for you and I would feed you with it by the very large spoonful. However, since I really can’t be in your kitchen, I simplified this deliciousness by throwing it all in one pot and crossing my fingers for a miracle. Luckily for all of us, it worked. HIGH FIVE!

Here’s what, though. This baby demands stirring. Yeah. I learned the hard way. First time I tried making it, I wanted to kick myself so hard because washing the sticky stuff off that pan was close to impossible. I considered throwing it away. So, because I want you to save your pans and your hands, please stir this often. Every 3 minutes is good enough. That’s like 5 stirs. NO biggie.

This pan stops me right in my tracks. YUM!

ENJOY!

    We just had this for dinner. We like soup so I added more milki and.broth than called for. It was absolutely delish. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s lunch to enjoy the little dish of leftovers…it was so good it only served two of us with a bit left over. And I am trying the dryer sheet soaking overnight to try and get pot clean. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This was not good at all. It was too sweet and some very odd sensory flavor combos. It was also too liquidy.

    Would probably be better without the almond milk, but honestly I don’t know how salvageable this concept is.

    Katerina, just an FYI if you ever end up with a pan that needs scrubbing again fill it with water and put in a dyer sheet or two depending on the size of the pan and let it sit overnight and like magic it will clean very easy. Oh and by the way thank you for the recipe I can’t wait to make it ~ Karen
