I went to the Food Bank yesterday, and was able to pick up 12 boxes of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. I don't care what anyone says, when it comes to boxed mac and cheese, the Kraft people win, hands down.

And with a side of green vegetables, your children can go to bed with a full stomach.

For a change in routine, (or to help make those other boxed brands palatable), try these:

• Put the prepared mac and cheese in a baking pan, and cover with 1 cup of bread crumbs. Put under the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes.

• Add a teaspoon or two of bacon grease to the water used for cooking the pasta.

• Stir in a 1/4 pound of cooked hamburger to the pot of prepared mac and cheese.

• Sprinkle with a teaspoon of Parmesan Cheese.
