I love my kids, but their eating habits make me want to scream sometimes. Up until recently whenever I made Sophie try a bite of something new she’d make herself violently gag, and once even made herself vomit. Over a baked potato. When she accepts her Academy Award one day I’ll be sure to mention that story to the media. Lately though we’ve made a little bit of progress with her, so I’m starting to have hope that one day we’ll be able to move past all of this. Suddenly she’s started not only trying new food, but will also sometimes admit that she likes it. That’s HUGE. But one thing neither she nor her brother will eat is macaroni and cheese. Seriously, what kid won’t eat macaroni and cheese? They will have nothing to do with it in any variation, whether homemade with extra cheese or plain out of the box. That just seems weird to me. So I keep coming up with little tricks to see if I can get them interested enough to keep trying it. When I saw this method in Food and Wine magazine I just knew I was on to something. Sophie thought these little mac and cheese bites were really cute, but not cute enough to change her feelings about the stuff. Max thought they made perfect ammunition for launching at the dogs. But please don’t let my weird kids deter you from these little mini macs. Everyone else in the world will love these. Little cheesy bites of deliciousness that just melt in your mouth. The perfect thing to serve on the side at all those cookouts this summer.
