We’ve put together a solution for the days you just can’t seem to get it together enough to cook.… Or more recently for us, when your stove runs out of gas. We get it –

we can’t all be Julia Child.

Lunch

Mac In A Mug

Microwave Meal

Instant Mug o’ Mac & Cheese in the Microwave

Ingredients:
1/3 cup pasta

1/2 cup water
1/4 cup 1% milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:
1. Combine the pasta and water in a large mug or bowl.

2. Microwave on high for two minutes, then stir. A lot of times the water will overflow while it heats up. It is OK if this happens. If you don’t want it to overflow just make this in a very large microwaveable bowl.
3. Repeat this for at least 2 to 4 more minutes, stirring at each 2-minute interval. The water should absorb completely and the pasta will be cooked through. If the pasta needs another minute it is okay to add one more teaspoon of water and microwave for another minute.
4. Remove it from the microwave and stir in the milk and cheese. Microwave for another minute. Stir the cheese thoroughly into the pasta and eat up!
