A Poignant Moment for MKH....

Happy Tuesday!

I feel like it should be Thursday but the calendar still says its Tuesday. Work has been uneventful to say the least and I have read the same two books twice in the last week. Being the reigning "Cube Queen" is becoming more and more "un-glamorous" and overrated. While I was sitting at my desk making mental to-do lists my mind began to wander to what I was going to have for dinner. Being that my domestic skills are lacking (and that's putting it lightly...) I figured that I would save myself the trouble and get something quick and easy. I wasn't particularly hungry after I worked out and nothing sounded extra yummy so I began to drive around hoping that something would appeal to my extra-picky eating habits.

After fighting through traffic (which I always complain about and regret getting into) I found myself at Panera. Those that know me often joke that my second favorite food group (my first true love is dry cereal...) is bread. I really wasn't in the mood for a sandwich (as the only sandwich that I will eat is a plain cheese or PB&J) so I opted for the newest addition to the Panera menu, the Mac&Cheese. I had heard wonderful things from other bloggers (Confessions Of A 20 Something & Le Petite Blog) in regards to the Mac&Cheese. I figured that Mac&Cheese is pretty basic (even though some people add tomatoes...ick) so I ordered it off the children's menu. I would most always prefer to order off the kid's menu as I don't feel as bad if I turn out to be not as hungry (or if things don't taste the way I had expected..) and I also like to nibble on my food, I am definitely not a plate-cleaner.

When I got home I still wasn't overly hungry but I opened the cup and sat down to watch last night's episode of the RHOA. I can honestly say that I had to go back and re-watch the first few minutes of the show because I was so very focused on my Mac&Cheese. The Mac&Cheese was so good and I can agree with the other bloggers/foodies about the hype that is surrounding this side dish. I almost wish that I hadn't tried it because whenever I get the taste for something small yet filling I will be racing to the closest Panera. 

Panera's Mac&Cheese is a life-changer and I suggest everyone try it ASAP. I would have never thought the highlight of my day would be be focused around a cheesy drive-thru pasta. Maybe a different food group will inspire me tomorrow:)

Its almost Wednesday!

Ok, so I am not a big fan of the mac-n-cheese but you have inspired me to try it haha.

How is your dieting and exercising going child? Maybe I need to get engaged to inspire me to lose the 10 lbs I have been saying I am going to lose forever now haha
