Macaroni Fry

So, as usual busy body was engaged in 'Mission Attack' and flying around. Shortly after achieving today's greatest critical and commercial success, that is after tearing away some bathroom tissues, he spotted the next enemy in line. He parked his flight on the dishwasher door and insanely started  attacking and destroying the enemy's weapon stockpiles(yeah, my dishes). Within no time the weapons were abolished. Considering the possibility of weapons being repaired again by the enemy, without mercy on the fallen parts, the attacker closed the door, locked it and turned on the 'Heat' mode' option! My mood was heating up along with the dishes but I tried to cool down before it overwhelmed my body! Until today, my 4 non stick serving spoons and 3 measuring cups sadly waved me a burnt goodbye!

The mac and cheese, I served him as snack after school was already cold and half dead on the table after attack. And the war almost lasted 2 hours. It was dinner time already!

If you google for a Mac and cheese recipe, you will see the O's in the gOOgle mount up. This common habitual dish has visited every household that the recipes are very less different from one another. I have done enough by jazzing it up and sneaking in veggies.
Omy's mac and cheese was ready to hit the trash. I had some breadcrumbs from previous days cutlets too ready to to buried. Coincidentally both of them found a spot near to each other and then bang! A bulb lit on top of my head! Since the mac was already cheesy and sticky I bathed them in breadcrumbs and fried them.  Munchy crunchy macaroni.

  • 1 cup elbow macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheese (cheddar)
In a large pot of salted boiling water cook the pasta and drain.
Melt butter, blend in flour, keep whisking and make sure there are no lumps.
Slowly whisk in milk, stirring constantly till the sauce turns thick and bubbly
Add cheese and stir until they melt.
Toss in the cooked elbow macaroni, blend everything well.

I make the sauce really thick so that it doesn't look watery and full of gravy.
The cheese kind of gets cold and sticks to the pasta if it stays for a while which makes it easier to fry.
I had it sitting there for almost 3 hours.
So just take one by one and bath them in breadcrumbs and fry!

Omy on the dishwasher door!

To an extent I enjoy and smile on the success of my little enemy! But, the calm smile can turn into a fierce snicker within seconds. Anyways, before I could raise my voice Omy finished his fried macaroni dinner and just fell asleep.
So, end of the day, I win the war. Calm and peace again!

Nite nite!
