Quick Dinner Fixins: Cajun Mac and Cheese

Let’s get down on the bayou with a kiss, a frog, and some serious flavor.
Macaroni and cheese is something I developed a late love affair with not growing up with the blue  box, but don’t make your children suffer the same fate as me, or they may become mac and cheese addicts (see my teenage years). The problem with mac and cheese is that it can get boring if you aren’t mixing it up from time to time with new flavors. Sure, melted cheese is amazing, but add some southern kick and we are really talking.
I have yet to see the Princess and the Frog. Now that I’m in my 20’s finding an excuse for it’s arrival in the Netflix account is harder to come by, though, when I started the posts for this weeks, I did check to see if it was on demand. Sadly, it wasn’t. Sad for the man, it’s on the list now. And another round of this awesome mac and cheese.

And congrats to Erin @ the Spiffy Cookie who Random.org selected as the winner of last weeks giveaway, CakeLove in the Morning!

    I have yet to see that movie either, but I definitely have a deep love for all things mac and cheese. Coming up with new ways to mix it up is definitely key when you eat it a lot O:-). Love this cajun version.

    I haven’t seen the movie either and I have a 5 year-old in the house. Dudette has a thing against movies, even cartoons, where people burst into song so much. :) I do love Cajun spices though and would love to eat this pasta since I’m not a fan of the blue box either. This is grown-up type comfort food. It looks delicious.

    Love the recipes this week! Mac and cheese is a staple at our house. I have always loved kids movies. Even before kids I would drag DH to see the latest movie. Luckily for him it was back when there was a still a drive in and they had double features. He would have to suffer through Mulan or something else then he would get to watch something he was half-way interested in.
