Someone in our family...you know who...is going through a serious macaroni and cheese phase. It's funny how kids get something in their heads and just fixate on it. This has happened to Kenya with tons of foods such as pizza, pasta, yogurt, muffins, cheese, even string beans (seriously, he couldn't get enough of them) and now he's obsessed with mac and cheese.
I've been having a blast coming up with fun pasta and cheese recipes and these Mac, Chicken and Cheese Bites are a tasty way to give your kids a double boost of protein. I especially love these bites because they fit beautifully in a lunch box and even little kids can easily hold them in their hands. When Kenya first saw these he asked, "What are those" and I said, "mac and cheese muffins". "Macaroni", "cheese" and "muffin" all in the same sentence? They were a winner before he even tried the first bite! I wonder if that means this phase will last three times as long?
