Macaroni Has A Day

Hi Everybody

Oh boy! June 7! Super excited that Macaroni Has A Day!! One of my absolute fondest memories of my precious dad was his love for food and our love for macaroni & cheese we shared together!

My mom always made our meals from scratch, but there were special treats she bought at the store. One treat for supper was a box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese! Every time I see the aisle that holds the boxes of macaroni all lined up with that packet of dry cheese, my heart gives a gentle squeeze.

My dad is not with us anymore physically, but his memory and love is all around. I can still remember him getting close to me and rubbing his arm against mine, smiling and saying, “We still love our macaroni and cheese, don’t we?! We always have since you were a little girl and we always will.”

Yes dad, we always will. 🙂 On our kitchen white board, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese has been added to our Grocery List.

In honor of my dad, I am making homemade macaroni & cheese. The mixture will be creamy and cheesy with plenty of salt because my dad was lover of salt and a good several dashes of pepper for my love of pepper.

I am so thankful that Macaroni Has a Day and even more thankful that Kraft Macaroni & Cheese has a special memory in my heart every day.
