I speak to my friend on Tuesday evening and she mentions she is making macaroni cheese for her children that evening.

On Wednesday evening while popping into Tesco for salad ingredients I find myself taking a bag of macaroni off the pasta shelf.

On Thursday lunchtime scrolling through my Twitter feed I find myself looking at a recipe for ausage, macaroni and cheese
