Tomorrow is National Mac and Cheese day. A day to celebrate a glorious, easy yet complex food with so many possibilities. You cant go wrong with mac and cheese as it is loved all. According to National Today, on July 14 the delightfully filling pasta dish is celebrated. The oldest known recipe of mac and cheese dates back to the 1300s in a medieval English cookbook. It was made popular in the states when published in "The Virginia House-Wife in 1824. Then Kraft started mass producing and selling boxed versions in 1937. I also just saw today that Kraft officially just came out with a mac and cheese ice cream. I love mac and cheese but that sounds truly gross to me.
In the gem state there is an entire festival dedicated to celebrating the dish in Coeur De Lene in April.
