Food for Finals

Fact: during final exams, students run on a minimal amount of sleep.  Fact: during finals, they also tend to consume the maximum amount of caffeine.  Fact: they also consume the absolute minimum amount of "real food". 

I know this from the experience I had throughout the past week cramming for exams.  It seemed that if it wasn't microwavable or eatable directly from fridge, it was a no-go for I had studying to do.  Tuesday night, however, I managed to pull together some "real food" with the help of my handy dandy Pyrex and Grandma's knowledge.

Meet the homemade macaroni and cheese which was my savior.

The best part?  It's a piece of cake to make.  All there is to it is to cook the macaroni, layer it with cheese in a casserole, then bake till cheesy is to melty perfection.  


Although mine wasn't as good as my grandma's, it was still quite yummy.  But then again, I don't know if anything can top a grandma's cooking. 


  1. This looks SOOOOO delicious! What kind of cheese do you use?

    1. I used sliced longhorn cheese in this one, but i'm pretty sure my grandma has used cheddar before too depending on what she had around


Thank you so much for any comments or feedback! I adore hearing from the people who take the time to read my overly excited - sometimes scatter brained - posts.
