Ugh. When Did You Become An Adult?
Situation: It's the season for graduations and the season for all those student loans to go into repayment status. Congratulations! You're a full-blown adult! Welcome to the real world. It's real fun: If you don't go to work, you get fired; if you don't pay your phone bill, it gets cut off; if you drink too much, you start to get a little beer belly.
Feelings: Bummed, scared and nervous as hell.
Goal: Mourn your childhood for a small bit — then snap out of it! Find the balance! Work hard so you can party hard.And eat your feelings!
You'll need some hardcore childhood comfort food for this one — something that will soothe your little soul, leaving you with a full tummy and a warm heart.
Peanut butter mac and cheese is exactly what you need. First of all, it combines two of the world's most comforting foods. Second of all, it's super simple to make.
Ingredients: macaroni and cheese box; milk; butter; and peanut butter.
1. Prepare your macaroni and cheese as directed. [Note: If you do not know how to prepare macaroni and cheese, your adult card is revoked.]
2. Add a large scoop of peanut butter to hot mac and cheese.
4. Eat the fuck out of that shit. All of it. Rub it directly on your chest. Whatever it takes to soothe your soul.
This recipe may sound weird, but think about it: Thai food combines peanut-based sauces and noodles all the time. This is no different.
Plus, it's cheap, easy and comforting!
