    Spinach and diced tomato goes pretty good -with a generous sprinkle of black pepper.

    Sounds delish!  I like spinach in mine too.

    I love to add peas to it.

    That sounds good, too -- like all of the additions in the entire set of answers and comments.

    Makes me think of those frozen meals with the little compartments segregating food.  One for meat.  One for cheesy mac.  One for peas.  Let's tear down walls and mix 'em.  I'll have to try peas and cheese some time.

    Oh my GOD that is so cute.  I love that.


    Here is a wonderful mac and cheese recipe.  I would personally substitute cream of shrimp or cream of mushroom because I don't eat meat.  I do eat fish, obviously. I am a pescatarian.  I have a name.

     All I’m saying is, give peas a chance.

    If it's Kraft macaroni and cheese, I sometimes add just a little bit of ketchup; a tiny dab and stir. Not anywhere near that much in the image. But he's cute, so he can stay. I'm in a base frame of mind today. :)

    Other kinds, I'm usually basic there, too just the pasta and cheese.

    Yes! Ha!
    :)


    and your comment here made me smile -- so, for some unknown reason, I'm now posting a younger, smiling picture of actor Richard Widmark. Because?

    I was in a restaurant once and some lady came up to me out of the blue, and said, "you look exactly like a young Richard Widmark." She then specifically said a 'young' Richard Widmark. 

    I later looked up some pictures of him in his younger years. (I've always liked him as an actor..) I felt like kissing that woman when I saw the photos. (Kiss a woman? Nope, never mind.) I find him very handsome, ha!

    This particular image is one where I can sort of see a strong resemblance. So - -

    without posting an actual photo of me, this image is the closest I have at the moment of an image of "WelbyQ smiling back at Twinkle Dink's comment to my answer."

    Boy - - I better take a break or something. Ha! Strange post, I admit, here! Have to go to work anyway.

    Be Well
    :)

    I NEVER get anyone's looks correct.  NEVER.  But this is EXACTLY what I picture you to look like.  I swear.  That is so weird.

    Maybe because you've known me quite a long time, you were able to see me.

    I think Randy must have slipped me something in my macaroni because when I look at you I keep seeing the word alamy floating around.

    Sure use a BLACK tlide'.   SURE.  What about WHITE TILDES like the one below????


    picture of white tilde on the left here.


    Randy is being racist by only portraying black tildes.  

    As you can see by all my posts, I use the white tilde every time I write an answer or post a question.

    Yeah, that word on my face, weird, huh?

    And trying to wash those letters off my face, every morning, especially the Roaming A's? Pretty hard. And they just keep coming back.

    Lobster is nice ($$$)  but TUNA?  Canned tuna is cheap and tasty with mac and cheese.  I love any addition.  Including more cheese.  It's good when you add a complimentary cheese that melts easily like some soft cheddar.

    What can I add to my mac and cheese?
    Mac & Cheese Add-Ins
    • Hot dogs from Kraft. Save. ...
    • Tuna. Once your mac and cheese is combined, add a drained can of tuna (packed in water). ...
    • Peas. Pasta and peas go together perfectly. ...
    • Ham. Use of leftover ham by adding chunks to your macaroni and cheese! ...
    • Tomato. ...
    • Tomato Soup. ...
    • Spicy Jalapeno Mac from SheKnows. ...
    • Ground Beef.

    Its beginning to look like just about anything can be added into the mix.
    I like the idea of hot dog and cheesy mac.

    If I had a restaurant, that would be on the menu.  Great to end a night of drinking and dancing for starters.  zzzzzzzzzzzzzz LOL  

    And then, I want to add chives on top.  Just a little.
