Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese

As I’ve mentioned here before, it’s no secret that mac & cheese is my all-time favorite comfort food. Although nothing will ever compare to box Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, sometimes we need to change it up a bit to give our taste buds a vacation from the same old stuff.

I came across this recipe
on Pinterest, and it now has become a staple recipe in my repertoire.
Ryan and I call it “gourmet mac and cheese” – it’s thick, creamy and cheesy. It’s made in the slow cooker, which = quick and easy. It also tastes just as good when reheated for a second-day meal!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
