If You Add Stuff to Mac and Cheese, We're Done

Mac and Cheese is meant to be just that- mac and cheese (and nothing else).

If You Add Stuff to Mac and Cheese, We're Done

This is a stubborn opinion, but I will stick with it until I die. Mac and cheese with anything added is bad. Just bad. Macaroni and cheese, at its very core, is meant to be comforting. We all remember that one time when we had a bad day and only mac and cheese sounded good. We all remember being with a special friend or family member and eating it together. We all remember when we had a babysitter and it was a huge treat.

What do all of those memories have in common?

Not bread crumbs. Not broccoli. Not bacon. Not all of that extra crap people put in macaroni and cheese to make it artisan or hipster or more delicious (impossible).

Macaroni and cheese is comforting. It is consistent. You eat it because you know what it tastes like and you don't want an adventure. Its flavor profile is simple, the texture is homogeneous, it's one taste and one temperature and one color and one shape. It's not meant to be different. It's not meant to be special or new. It's meant to be something that you can depend on when you don't want a surprise. And gosh darn it, macaroni and cheese does it better than anything else.

So don't add to it. Enjoy the simple taste and happy feeling in your belly. Just be at peace with your noodles.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music.

I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
