Well, actually it was yesterday...but I am just now getting to it. I just wanted to dedicate a post to Cheese day! Which was February 20th. MY personal version of cheese would DEFINITELY be mac-n-cheese, so here are some mac-n-cheese facts. :)
Crayola named one of their crayon colors “macaroni and cheese" in 1993
In 1937, Kraft introduced its famous boxed version of mac and cheese; nine million boxes were sold in the first year
The original source for Macaroni and Cheese is unknown but the first known written recipe is from thirteenth century southern Italy--recipe calls for lasagna sheets and fermented cheese.
Burgundy wine is recommended to be served with macaroni and cheese
Thomas Jefferson is credited with introducing macaroni to the United States after he brought the first macaroni machine home with him from France
I know, this really doesn't tie-in with mac-n-cheese, but I thought I would end the post with something even MORE yummy. :) Red velvet hot chocolate. :) Mhmmm. I advise you to try it sometime. :)
