🗓️ July 14
Is there anything more comforting than a warm bowl of cheesy pasta goodness on a chilly night? That’s why we’re celebrating Mac & Cheese Day on July 14th. So grab your stretchy pants, your favorite cheesy recipe, and get ready to indulge in the ultimate comfort food!
Mac & Cheese or Cheese & Mac?
First things first, let’s talk about what mac & cheese is (and what it’s not). Mac & cheese is not your average pasta dish. It’s a creamy, dreamy, cheesy delight that’s the epitome of comfort food. It’s made with elbow macaroni and a cheese sauce that can be made with a variety of different cheeses, spices, and seasonings.
While other macaroni dishes might feature different types of pasta or sauces, mac & cheese is a standout because of its simplicity and pure cheesy goodness. And let’s be clear – this is not your traditional family recipe baked mac & cheese with bread crumbs on top. Nope. This is the real deal, stovetop style!
The Origin of Mac & Cheese day
As for the origins of this holiday, it’s a bit murky.
Some say it started as a marketing ploy by a well-known mac & cheese brand, while others speculate it was created by a group of cheese-loving foodies who just wanted an excuse to indulge in their favorite dish.
Whatever the reason, we’re here for it. And honestly, do we really need an excuse to celebrate the glory of mac & cheese?
How to Celebrate Mac & Cheese Day
Now, let’s talk about how to celebrate.
First things first, make yourself a big ol’ pot of mac & cheese. Don’t be shy with the cheese – the more, the merrier. Add some crispy bacon, diced tomatoes, or green onions for an extra flavor boost.
Once you’ve got your mac & cheese masterpiece, grab a glass of your favorite beverage.
Personally, we recommend a crisp white wine or a sparkly mineral water to cut through the richness of the cheese.
Want to take your mac & cheese celebration to the next level?
Host a mac & cheese cook-off with friends or family.
Each person brings their own unique spin on the classic dish, and everyone gets to taste test and vote on the best one.
Of course, no holiday would be complete without a few safety tips.
Be sure to wear your stretchy pants, as mac & cheese has been known to cause extreme fullness.
And if you’re cooking with kids, be careful with the boiling water and hot cheese sauce.
But really, the biggest danger is eating too much and slipping into a blissful mac & cheese coma. But hey, it’s worth it, right?
Let’s raise a fork (or a spoon, or even just our hands) to Mac & Cheese Day! Whether you’re a die-hard fan of the classic elbow macaroni and cheddar cheese combo, or you prefer to mix it up with different cheeses and toppings, today is the day to celebrate all things mac & cheese. So go forth, make some mac & cheese magic, and don’t forget to tell your friends that Wild Calendar gave you permission to indulge in this cheesy delight.
Happy Mac & Cheese Day!
This may be cheesy,
but I think mac and cheese for breakfast, lunch and dinner
is really grate.
