Chili Mac ‘N’ Cheese
Sorry in advance for such a short post. I am trying to keep up with providing you all with tasty recipes while also trying to live life to the fullest for my 8 months in Hawaii. I know you are all awesome, so I am sure you understand. I am writing this post at 12:15 AM before heading to bed so that I can wake up at 5:30 to head to the North Shore to watch the sunrise and surfing before I go into work again tomorrow afternoon. =)
To go with this rushed post, I give you the perfect food for when you are in a rush. You can make the chili ahead and freeze it, then make this dish anytime you are in a hurry or don’t feel like making an extravagant dinner. Oh and did I mention it is the most delicious meal ever? OK, good.
