What Everyone's Missing About That Gross Mac & Cheese on Twitter Today - Food News
From The Kitchn - October 20, 2017

I think it's safe to say that most people would consider waking up to mac and cheese to be a very good thing. I know I certainly fall into that camp (regardless of the fact that it is not exactly a traditional breakfast food) because, I mean, come on: It's mac and cheese.

That said, waking up to mac and cheese this morning in particular was an unpleasant surprise. When I opened my phone, the offensive image you see above crossed my screen. And I was deeply hurtbut not for the reason you think.

Twitter user Jan Levinson shared the image above to illustrate her disapproval of the "mac and cheese" her coworker prepared for an upcoming potluck. One coworker here referred to it as "Pasta Cheese Salad," which, at first glance, I understandbut we are missing something.

Look at the border of the image. That black outline. It's a slow cooker. Although the web would tell us this abomination was intended to be served as is, the context of the situation indicates that there's more to the story. Namely, that it might still need to be set to low and cook for two to four hours.

I do not know where Janis lives, but the time stamp of 10:40 on her initial tweet makes me think this was exactly the plan her generous cheese-loving coworker was putting to action. And kindly too; reheated mac and cheese just is not the same as freshlyprepared, and it truly does not get any fresher than this.
