We’ve all been there, in need of a quick meal to throw together before running out the door to another practice or event. Or maybe you’re just looking for something simple to whip up for the kids before you and the hubs head out on a date night! Whatever the reason, it’s helpful to have a couple of recipes on hand that don’t require much thought or preparation.
My go-to meal for these instances is Macaroni and Cheese. I always have a box of it on hand in my pantry, it’s a staple grocery store purchase every week. My kids love it (I actually love it too!), it’s simple, and you can add a variety of ingredients to turn your favorite side dish into a delicious meal. Here are my 7 favorite Mac & Cheese recipes to incorporate into your back-up meal options for the crazy days when you’re short on time, or the lazy days when you don’t feel like adulting.
