Don't know why... as I was looking into my files seeking material for the new post, I found Macaroni and Cheese and just instantly had craving for it. Tried to remember what exactly I had in my fridge, and need to swing by supermarket to get the rest of the ingredients, especially those fresh ones like onion, parsley, and milk.
After a long working day, just hope I could fix my dinner quickly, sit down comfortably on my couch, eat my macaroni hot and watch "No Reservation" - for the third time. Yes, third time ..... just totally love love love it.
