Mom whips up these little pieces of heaven every holiday, or whenever our heart’s too broken to function without ‘em.
Pops always explains it like this: You’re our little tadpole, so when you came along in our life, Mom and I cut out a place for you in the life we share, then raised you under intense heat. And fed you to a giant.
9. Peanut Butter and Jelly
Fundamentally, this is just three ingredients that are sort of OK on their own. But whenever we slap the three together, it always tastes like childhood, rainbows, and happiness.
10. Grilled Cheese
Pops grills these things up whenever our stomach rumbling has outpaced our abilities to quickly whip up a meal. And it’s back to the drawing board if the cheese isn’t gooey enough.
12. Fish Sticks
That almost unnatural crunch. A hint of the sea. The inability to resist making a dinner fort. It’s a delicious family tradition you wouldn’t dare share with anyone outside your family.
But a warm bowl of KRAFT Mac & Cheese tastes like home all the time.
Simple, fast, and delicious: the holy trinity of cheesy goodness our parents always know when to dish out.
