      Yeah. he doesn't question ANYTHING that he's told, unless he's been told something else first, in which case he doesn't so much question it as reject it.

      This guy would have soaked UP the primal lifestyle if he'd heard about it BEFORE the CW stuff, but as it is, it's FAR too late and there's literally NO chance he'll EVER pick up on it.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

        That's too bad, pretty common though unfortunately.

          While I don't miss the packaged stuff, my husband's homemade mac and cheese is one of the things I miss being Primal. The trick is not to cook the noodles in water all the way, the baking process will do it. He made his with leeks, manchego cheese and kielbasa pieces mixed in. Panko bread crumbs and parmesan on top. HEAVEN.

            I do still make homemade shells and cheese for my kids (18 and 21) about once a month because it's a nostalgic thing for them, but I only eat it maybe every other time myself.

            Mine is a pound of large shells, a pound of mild cheddar, 2 Tbsp of butter, 2 Tbsp of flour, and about a 1/2 cup of milk plus salt and pepper.

            It's definitely not primal, but it's not Velveeta either.

            The Boyfriend like the shells and cheese-like product with the packet that you're supposed to squish up and then squeeze onto the hot pasta. Just kind of creeps me out.

              What's really surprising is he has a girlfriend.

              When I was hiking the Pacific Crest and living on pasta every night I still didn't like ordinary "Kraft dinner" mac and cheese or even the fancier shells with liquid cheese sauce. That shit is nasty. Instead I used alfredo cheese powdered sauce (using the whole packet which serves 4 in about 3/4 cup of water) and chunks of real swiss gruyere cheese. Then it was pretty good.

              That stuff they taught us to make in Home Ec when I was a kid was pretty good. It contained lots of eggs, butter and cheese and was baked in the oven. But your recipe sounds really good. I could make that and skip the bread crumbs and substitute a melange of squashes for the noodles.

                Wait, what?! CW...

                Even by CW standards Velveeta shells and 'cheeze' dinner and two ice cream pops is a seriously shitty dinner.
                There is no CW being applied there! It's 100% SAD... so, SO SAD.

                A good real cheese sauce, with eggs added in, like you'd do a "macaroni bake", but done with vegetables is great.
                In the south there has always been "Squash casserole" which is pretty much what you are referring to, but the same concept (with maybe minor adjustments) works well with lots of other vegetables and is easily converted.

                  @June68- Candy In Wonderland has a good cauliflower and cheese substitute recipe for mac and cheese on her journal. I think she posted it about the end of August/beginning of September.

                      OK, I gotta admit. I miss mac and cheese. I made it out of the box, but I would buy the cheap white cheddar kind, not Kraft but a no name brand. The cheese was much sharper and the noodles were pretty stiff, which is how I liked them. Instead of using skim and butter like the box said, I'd use heavy cream and lots of butter. The result was DELICIOUS. Oh man, I'm getting hungry...
