The most nerve-wracking part about Thanksgiving is being sober with family the worry of whether the bird will be fully cooked or even finished on time, or will there be enough food or do I have enough Xanax and wine!?
Everyone is all apple pie this and hot dogs that, but if our great nation’s waistbands are any indication, a plateful of creamy, bubbly, carb-y mac and cheese is about as American as any food gets.
The easy, slightly White Trash, totally glamorous manifestation of this classic Thanksgiving dish is the kind I grew up with. It’s actually the very first thing my mother taught me how to cook.
If your family is anything like ours, you don’t tend to get together for Thanksgiving. This holiday usually takes a back seat to Christmas that seems to be celebrated earlier and earlier every year.
