Hearty Chicken Pot Pie Recipe from Betty Crocker. Macaroni circa 1870. Original Recipe: MACARONI.

Macaroni circa 1870

Mix into half a pint of milk a little flour, and a small piece of butter, half a tea-cup of cream, half a tea-spoonful of mustard, salt, pepper, and cayenne, and four ounces of good fat cheese grated very fine; stir all together and boil for ten minutes. Pour this over the macaroni, after draining it from the water boil five or six minutes and serve. The Verdict: We decided to double the recipe, because five ounces of pasta didn't seem like enough for my hungry man.

Its true that I keep very few packaged foods on hand these days; there is usually a box of crackers and some granola bars for lunches but other than that, its pretty much pantry staples.

Not exactly nothing to eat, but since he doesn't cook, he doesn't see the potential. Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it much easier to always have something to make for dinner.
