I don't want to meet someone who doesn't like mac and cheese, in some capacity. Honestly, I don't. Someone who doesn't like mac and cheese sounds like a sociopath to me. Because, what's not to like? It's literally two of the best foods, pasta and cheese, combined in one delicious dish, Plus, there are so many kinds of mac and cheese. There's your standard baked mac and cheese, which is made with love and sprinkled with bread crumbs over bubbling yellow cheese. Then you have your quick, simple and still yummy boxed mac and cheeses, whether that's Kraft, Annies or some other brand. Heck, even vegans get to have their cake and eat it too. Cashew mac and cheese is totally delicious and even the biggest dairy lovers will agree it slaps.

While most (if not all) of us can agree that mac and cheese is the bomb, there's still division. And that division is between whether mac and cheese is an entree or a side dish. For me, I grew up having mac and cheese as the main course, with items like green beans, peas or broccoli. However, I know that many other people grew up having mac and cheese be a side to larger meals, such as barbecue. Honestly, I'm cool with either, just as long as you're seasoning the hell out of it with pepper and have a bottle of hot sauce on hand.
