Note to self...

Do NOT substitute olive oil for butter when making macaroni and cheese! Can I just say YUCK?! Ugh, it was so gross, I still can't get the taste out of my mouth. I realized halfway through making my mac n cheese that I was out of butter, so I tried to figure out what else I could use and figured olive oil would work. Um, no! Seriously, that taste was just not right. It doesn't help that I think the olive oil I have is past it's prime and tastes a bit, uh, off. Ew, I can still smell it too. I need to find something strong to eat to chase the taste and smell from my memory.

LOL - I'm sorry, but I'm cracking up over here at your expense. Forgive me! It just doesn't even sound good LOL But, I can relate, because I can't tell you how many times I have started to make something and realized halfway through that I was out of an ingredient!

Thanks for the heads up! :)

Oh, you know what I do? Just don't drain the macaroni as well and let the moisture help with the cheese.

I bet that was yucky!

If you're out of butter, just add more milk and some cheese, whatever you have around (but I usually keep some slices of american in the freezer for this reason).

Yeah, I kow some people never use butter in their's but I've always used butter so I was so lost lol. If it happens again I'll just make it without it.

That olive oil sounds gross. I think butter is so much better but yeah in a pinch just leave it out.
