Nothing quite says “I love you,” or “Happy Valentine’s Day!” like Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese. While we decided that no, we’re not going to go anywhere for dinner this evening, Jay, the bambino and I still need to eat. I decided last night that since I was doing all that baking, we would either go out or order in. Ordering in won out, since the bambino didn’t want to go anywhere (he’s in this phase of deconstructing and reconstructing all his Lego sets, so he didn’t want to have to leave in the middle of that), and I had hoped for a buffalo chicken pizza. Alas, Jay wanted a calzone and actual wings, so I got a burger. But I’ve still been craving something with buffalo sauce on it, and figured that I’d give Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese a try. I love chicken, I love mac & cheese, and you could put buffalo sauce on an old leathery shoe and I’d still eat it!
It did mean yet another trek to the grocery store, since I needed cheese, chicken and pasta. I chose shells, just for the heck of it.
This is as delicious as Buffalo Chicken Dip…Which I am also addicted to. It’s no wonder I’m at a stupid weight-loss plateau–I keep eating stuff like this! Ah, well…Even though I totally could eat this every day, I don’t.
Poor Jay…I think he’s getting burned out on Buffalo everything these days!
Still, he was nice enough to get me some treats for Valentine’s Day:
The monkey card has become somewhat of a tradition. I also found these tucked inside:
Yes, The Price is Right is coming to Brookings…And apparently Jerry Springer is the host! One of my coworkers suggested getting decked out in some of my Cincinnati Reds attire, in the hopes that I get picked to come up on stage. I just might do that!
