About a week ago the girls complained one time too many about dinner. As a result we followed through with an oft repeated threat to have Kraft Mac and Cheese every night for a week (I think we originally threatened a month--but a week was long enough.) The first night I made three packages to feed our family. We had some leftovers but not much. By the last night I made one box and our family of six just couldn't finish one package.
I did not expect to grow so sick of Kraft Mac and Cheese so fast. There were some positives about the whole Mac and Cheese experiment. The deal was that if anyone complained about dinner they had to eat an extra night of Mac and Cheese. It was really refreshing to have complaint-free dinners. Also, I had a lot more time each evening because I didn't really have to make dinner. We also we saved money. By the end we fed the whole family for less than a dollar. But I never want to see Kraft Mac and Cheese again.
