Last night I made my kids some Kraft Easy Mac for dinner. It was Friday night and we usually do pizza or take-out but Momma is tryin’ to get her groove back so I made a very healthy and slightly disgusting dinner for me and Hubs and Mac and Cheese for the girls. (You have NO idea how hard it was not to face plant in the bowl when it was done.)
I got the family-size box because one little box just isn’t enough to feed all three kids anymore. Normally I just make it. I don’t read the directions, I add a little milk and that magical orange powder and maybe a tablespoon of butter and stir. But last night I happened to pick up the box and look at the directions and I almost passed out, right there in my very own kitchen.
Do you SEE how much butter it calls for? (It says margarine, but WHO on God’s green earth is going to put margarine in it? If that’s you, don’t tell me because I can’t handle it. Margarine disgusts me.) Four tablespoons of margarine disgusts me even more than an ENTIRE STICK OF BUTTER.
Are these people serious?? I love butter, but this seems excessive even to me. I’d like to know where Paula Deen was when Kraft needed these directions written up. I’ve got my money on her standing in their test kitchen.
