Baked Macaroni

Sydney has become colder and colder..
Shivering, as well as getting hungry all the time, which frustrates me a little bit.
I crave for carbs, sweets, anything which lead me to the consequences that I have to conquer i.e gaining weight, and pimples appearing happily everywhere. None of them are good.
However, I am not afraid to add more mess to the body, as long as my tummy is full. 
You don't want to see an angry hungry woman lying around the house, and mess everything up, do you?
So, I made this baked macaroni. 
It is very simple, very cheesy, and very gratifying. Nothing beats the carbs and protein overloaded foods, Don't u agree?.



This is one of my youngest sister favourite. I have nothing to worry if I made this for her, she will polish it with no problem!
So for any cheese lovers in the world. Give it a try! :)
