I have no control when it comes to macaroni and cheese. I would gladly hold my mouth open wide, giant spoon in hand, as you dumped a truck load of it into my mouth. Screw the repercussions of eating 100 pounds of cheese and pasta, I’m there!
Unfortunately, if I took that attitude to the kitchen with me every day, I’d be really really fat. I’m personally a fan of the creamy kind and that’s probably a result of overdoing it on the Velveeta as a kid, which looking back is the equivalent to eating melted rubber. I might as well have been gnawing on a Stretch Armstrong or something. Consider this your all natural savior to the rubbery stuff.
