There are a few things that will always be a part of my life. Mac and Cheese....it makes the list. The problem is there are certain times in my life....like, the day before June 1st and the official OFFICIAL start to swim suit season that I realize the food company I keep and the swim suit section at every store on planet earth are not friends. I mean.....if you are willing to throw in a nice cover up and by coverup....I mean mu mu....then maybe, but...a mu mu gets bulky to pack on vacation, so...enter....Skinny Mac and Cheese a la Skinny Girl's blog. And you know what, I can dig it. I added some seasoning salt, but I managed to make a meal or three out of this. It was filling, it was a good substitute for those of us in need, and if one can lose 20 pounds in 20 hours.....I'm pretty much almost, but not really ready for swimsuit season.....but I will be....next June. And if you too have trouble fitting the mu mu in the suitcase, here's a recipe to help....
