Now, I don't know if this is normal. Certainly a great way to begin a personal piece.
I just made some Kraft's Macaroni & Cheese and it was delicious. And you know Kraft, you can make it any way. They suggest that you use a specific amount of milk and even more precise bit of butter. But, you also know you don't have to listen to Kraft, Kraft is your bitch now. You can make it without milk or butter if the situation arises and still be able to pull off a great meal.
In my very recent experience, I lacked the simple ingredient of milk. I knew I would pull through and the Mac & Cheese would be exemplary.
Still, here I sit, on my bed of satin, nipping at my macaroni. I long for the lost milk which would have guaranteed my placing in the world's best. Though disappointed in myself I am, my pride shines through.
