@chai2,
My Mom fixed them macaroni and cheese today for lunch, probably just to keep them quiet for an hour! Shocked

Mac and cheese works if three conditions are met: (1) you're hungry (2) there's plenty of M & C (3) you have at least one big jalapeno pepper.

@JLNobody,
I would have to be very hungry, indeed.

@JLNobody,
Hey, JL, how are you doing? I miss talking with you about silly stuff. Not to mention the rest of stuff.

I don't think I have ever had a pukka, home made macaroni cheese.

I had the Heinz tinned stuff once, and wasn't too impressed.

@Lordyaswas,
I thought a pukka was a kind of knife from Finland.

Oh no, you can't judge by that. You need good sharp cheddar cheese mixed with milk, and bread crumbs on top so everything gets all brown and crispy.

mmmmm

Oh no.

In the UK, pukka means the real deal, genuine, top quality, first class etc.


"Wanna buy a Rolex?"

"Is it pukka?"


Probably a word brought back by the troops from India. I think in Indian it means something like "home made" or "well cooked".

@chai2,
This is interesting, because I love pasta and I love cheese, so I think I may enjoy a real homemade dish like this.

This is obviously the family comfort type of food that has never really made it over the pond, as we usually associate this with the aforementioned Heinz, or 'orrible slop school dinners from olden days.

A good quality one sounds interesting.

I suppose our equivalent family comfort dish would be shepherds pie or the many and varied hotpots and hashes.

We have always been a potato based country, as our weather is more suited to the humble spud.
Pasta trees will grow here, but don't crop well. More of a Med type of plant.

@Lordyaswas,
well, "English cuisine" is, as we all know, an oxymoron.

All you need is a good bait of steak and kidney pie.

@farmerman,
Agreed.

We tend to use the word grub, as cuisine sounds a bit foppish and usually involves being served with a main course of one scallop sitting on a bed of balsamic drizzled lettuce.

macaroni and cheese in a can?

We don't have such a thing here.

We do however have that nasty crap that comes in a box, that's got a packet of saltly orange crap that's supposed to be the sauce.

Or, even worse. While looking for a picture of boxed mac and cheese, I came across this product made by (ug) Velveeta. I'm sure it's got some smooshy packet of heart clogging salty liquidy velveeta that you squeeze over the mess.

DISCLAIMER: THE FOLLOWING PICTURES ARE NOT MAC AND CHEESE. THEY ARE PLATES FULL OF GRUBS.
