We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
People make a meal of it, with salad, but it's also a darn good side with roast beef.
A little truffle oil makes for an upscale Mac and Cheese. I had that once in a very fancy restaurant, baked in individual pottery ramekin/mugs with shaved truffle on top. Quite effete and entirely edible.
These ain't Mac & Cheese - look at the back of a Muellers elbow macaroni box, Fannie Farmer's Classic Baked Macaroni and Cheese or the following from the late mathprof http://www.grouprecipes.com/9837/really-old-fashioned-macaroni-and-cheese.html
