(Independence Day) Macaroni & Cheese my style!

So today is Independence Day to all my USA based friends and as it happens, it's also Winter here in South Africa.  Bummer.  This time of the year often calls for a lot of warmth in the form of hot chocolate, soup and various forms of comfort food that you can think off.

Visited the new Pachas yet?
