What Happens to Leftover Mac ‘n’ Cheese?

08/02/2011 By Shawn Burns

I made blue box mac ‘n’ cheese for “dinner” tonight. I tossed some frozen shelled edamame into the water with the cooking “noodles”, because adding edamame tricks somebody into thinking that this is healthy. I think the somebody being tricked is me.

My kids don’t eat a whole box of mac ‘n’ cheese, and Emily doesn’t help much. And what is leftover isn’t quite enough to feed both the kids at another meal time. So what happens to the leftover mac ‘n’ cheese?

Do I:

1) Put it into a container and refrigerate it anyway, in case I want to give it to one of the kids, while I make something else for the other?

2) Toss it in the trash?

3) Stand over the sink with the pot in one hand and the serving spoon in the other, shoveling the orange mess into my mouth so it “doesn’t go to waste”?

Oh my god.
