For The Love Of Macaroni.

April 5, 2012


Erin Schrader

It’s no secret that I love macaroni and cheese around these parts.
But sometimes I go in phases.
Like instead of eating it two times a week, I eat it four.
Or instead of making “homemade versions” once every month, I make 20 different versions in about 30 days.
Yes, that happened.
In my defense I legit thought I was going to open up a macaroni and cheese restaurant.
Turns out I don’t know a thing about how to cook or how to run a restaurant.
Two things they say you need to know.
To each is own.

Well the past couple of days I have been in one of those moods where all I can think about is where my next noodle dripped in cheese is going to come from.
Which brings me to today.

Today I was reminiscing on some of the better macaroni and cheese experiences I have.
And that is when it happened.
My mind took me back to October 2010.
Siesta Key, FL.
A macaroni and cheese Croquette in all of her glory.

You may be saying “what in the world is a croquette?”
To which I would reply–a ball of deep fried macaroni and cheese.
Preferably with cheese on top.
Yes you read that right.
Macaroni and cheese.
Deep Fried.
Drizzled in cheese.

Yes, I excuse you for the drool running down your face.

Anyhow, I suddenly knew I had to tell my husband of this craving.
So I sent him an email saying something along the lines of
“I must go eat that macaroni & cheese ball in Siesta. Like asap”
So he says {without thinking about where this might lead…}
“That thing was pretty darn good”

Long story short.
Flights and hotel are booked.

All for the love of deep fried macaroni and cheese.

Siesta Key, I’ll be seeing you soon.


Real quick–two things that have nothing to do with macaroni and cheese and how I am crazy enough to book a vacation centered around that.

For starters, you can find me over here writing about what makes me excited. Oddly enough, macaroni & cheese is not even mentioned. Where was my head on that one? Anyhow, check it out yo.

And last, I have a special friend who wants to introduce herself over here.
Hurry your buns and say hello.

Peace Out Little Bits.
Love love and love.
