There are some things I will never outgrow. Today I get to travel to Walt Disney World in Orlando to attend Food Blog Forum 2015, my first blogging event. I've wanted to go to an event for a while, and Kitchen Joy just had its 2nd birthday so this seemed an appropriate way to celebrate. I am so excited to meet other bloggers, and extremely nervous at the same time. I’m definitely out of my league among the other uber-successful and crazy inspiring bloggers in attendance. Not to mention my lifelong kindred spirit, Minnie Mouse. The girl can rock a polka dot skirt like none other.
Given that I am shameless in my love for all things Disney, I also have no intention of ever abandoning my insatiable hunger for macaroni and cheese. This recipe for Spicy Mac and Cheese with Grilled Chicken is truly a complete meal that packs enough of a flavor kick to satisfy any adult. My 6 year-old self would hate the spiciness, so I guess I have grown a little.
This recipe is a nod to an exceptionally great mac and cheese that I enjoyed in Upstate New York last Spring with my Mom and Sister. It had been a long journey on the roads to visit my sister at school, and the hunger was real. We found this great sort of brewery-style restaurant and I was thrilled with my selection. I must say though, this homemade version is even better.
Have a fantastic weekend! I'll be sure to say hello to Minnie for you.
