They made the right call. Macaroni and cheese is definitely that good.

[–] [email protected] 14 points 1 month ago (12 children)

Look, some people just can't digest it. As you get older, your ability to process mac'n'cheese without dire intestinal consequences drops off substantially. The pros just simply aren't worth the cons, not by a long shot.

Doesn't stop me tho

As you get older, you develop taste and stop eating garbage.

There are varieties of mac'n'cheese other than Kraft

Looks like Rocket League. If so then this would be a highly offensive thing to say. Most of the players in casual are about 10 years old 😂

[–] Lost_My_Mind 8 points 1 month ago (4 children)

The few times I played rocket league, I played casual, and got my ass handed to me.

Maybe theres a casual mode for casual players. I'm looking forward to losing to a 3 year old. Apperently those 10 year olds are way outta my skill range!

Oooooh, maybe we can find a player who's just learning their colors! Maybe thats more my speed.

[–] [email protected] 6 points 1 month ago (1 children)

You just gotta stick to it, the rocket league progress curve is incredibly steep at the beginning, but if you just brute force through it for a bit you'll reach the first plateau where you actually manage to touch the ball once in a while. Getting over that plateau is a different story and the progress curve is much slower after that.

Also go and do the training sets, start with the easiest ones until you nail them then move on to the next one, etc.

RL is pretty much the only game I still play regularly because I've been playing it for a long time and I can just do one game if I don't have much time, most other games require too much of my very limited free time.

I can't understand why Americans love industrialized cheese so much. It's horribly, full of salt. Unbearable!

[–] [email protected] 37 points 1 month ago (14 children)

I can't understand how non-Americans have gone their entire lives without witnessing macaroni and cheese that exists outside of Kraft.

[–] [email protected] 10 points 1 month ago (3 children)

brother I'm American and I didn't even know you could buy waffle maker machines until a few months ago, I thought they were all frozen

[–] [email protected] 11 points 1 month ago (1 children)

It puts the homemade chilimac into the waffle iron

There is a place nearby where you can buy 5 boxes of Kraft Mac & Cheese for $5. Used to be a box for $.50-75.

When your next stubbed toe could require you to sell an organ, cheap Kraft seems perfect.

Make yourself some home made Mac and Cheese someday. Then make sure to burn the recipe so you can save yourself from that daily temptation.

Edit to add, whatever you do. Don't add chili. Real ChiliMac is a level 5 paranormal entity that will haunt you the rest of your life.

You're really tempting the mods on this one. Not that I don't agree with you.

That's a soft take...

*clears throat*

macaroni and cheese utterly disgusting, nothing about it is appetising, the consistency of it is remarkably similar to the consistency of sewage, it smells like concentrated foot sweat and I dont know how it takes an amazing tasting product like cheese and turns it into the this horrifically vile tasting slop, but that right there is proof of Satan's existence.

I have ALWAYS hated mac and cheese. Anyone I've ever told this to is like "hOw CaN yOu NoT lIkE MaC aNd ChEeSe!!?? It'S aMaZiNg!!" I'm sure my dog thinks dogfood is amazing. But you don't see me eating it.

If you're talking about the box, understandable. If you're talking about actual mac and cheese, maybe you just don't know anyone who knows how to cook.

Talking about macaroni on the internet has always been risky

[–] Iron_Lynx 10 points 1 month ago (1 children)

He's right though.

Mac & cheese really is unimpressive. Spaghetti Carbonara is way better, even with inaccurate ingredients (e.g. using bacon instead of guanciale or even pancetta).

Though if you do insist on making it 'Murican style, try melting the cheese into a bechamel sauce and adding some diced ham or cubed bacon. The former makes it way creamier, even if it ends up standing for a while, and the latter just adds some neat flavour and texture. Stick with ham and/or bacon, or maybe very few other things, otherwise it stops being mac & cheese imo.

I saw a story once of someone who asked internet strangers whether they were the asshole because they hated someone's mac & cheese. When they described what went into the stuff, it was full of added things, a quarter of which would already stop it from being mac & cheese, and half of which either conflict with each other, or are stuff which if they were the sole additive would give me a reason to nope out of the dish.

With both mac & cheese and spaghetti carbonara, I'd say less is more.

Are we talking kraft or made from scratch?

[–] Ejh3k 8 points 1 month ago (7 children)

Doesn't matter. Mac and cheese ain't anything special.

[–] Mbourgon 9 points 1 month ago (4 children)

Alton Brown’s with Gruyère Is fantastic. The funny thing is, kids don’t like it because it’s got too much flavor or something. Lol.

He's right though. Macaroni and cheese is kind of mid, a solid 4/10 for cheese based dishes.

What about mac and cheese with bacon and jalapenos ?

We do add various cheeses to our pasta and it tastes good. It's usually just a quick and easy meal but it's nothing special.

Not sure how mac and cheese (not the box stuff) could be much different. Although, I've never had a meal that would be specifically called mac and cheese.

[–] The_Tired_Horizon 7 points 1 month ago

I find that context is everything... so it depends where they were eating it from.
