Celebrate National Macaroni and Cheese Day With Phil, Jim, and Harry.

Did you know that Sunday, July 14th is NATIONAL MACARONI AND CHEESE DAY? I think it’s fitting to have a special day for such an iconic food. Is there anyone out there who doesn’t love some form of this dish? Many of us grew up with that orange-staple-in-a-box and survived college eating it. Just about every restaurant has some kind of mac & cheese on its menu. And, I’m sure we all have our favorites.

To celebrate the day, I am giving away a copy of the delightful PB by Robin Newman titled NO PEACOCKS, where peacocks Phil, Jim, and Harry set out to sample the local school’s world famous mac & cheese.

To enter for a chance to win, please share what you think is the best macaroni and cheese ingredient ever. The one special thing you add to your recipe that elevates it to new heights. I will put your name in my hat and draw one random entry for the give-away.

Enjoy the day, and may all your macaroni and cheese be DELICIOUS!

  1. Darlene, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You are the best!!! Happy to send a signed copy to the winner. p.s. Had no idea there was a National Mac ‘n Cheese Day!

  2. Fun to know! Now you have me craving it. The secret that amped up our mac n’ cheese was switching to Tillamook sharp cheddar as the “base” cheese. So much better! Then throw in whatever else you have a bit leftover – smoked gruyere, mozzarella, whatever. Being vegetarian, meat doesn’t go in and I prefer veggies on the side so they aren’t overcooked. Mix them together on your plate. :))

  3. I have made a ‘from scratch’ mac and cheese dish for my family for years. And Years. 30 minutes to prepare, and 30 minutes to bake. Half a year ago a friend gave me a new recipe that takes me 5 minutes to put together (in a ovenproof dish with uncooked mac and lots of GOOD shredded sharp cheese and 4 cups of WHOLE milk). Bake for an hour and it’s incredibly delicious. And yes, believe it or not, we like it with BROCCOLI (as Mike already suggested above) and also tomato, and asparagus. That way, the meal is healthy. Tee hee.
