Salsa Mac & Cheese: Dinner on a Budget with Kraft Coupons

This may be the nicest summer I can remember.  You know, not too hot, not too rainy.  I’m pretty sure that where our house is, we have just lucked out.  Even being 7 months pregnant, it is just plain gorgeous out.  I can enjoy being outside instead of getting overheated so quickly.  Because of the great weather, dinner is the last thing on my mind.  Yet, I still have to make dinner.  Every night.  For me, a good, summertime dinner means a good, family meal that doesn’t take much time and doesn’t break the bank.  Oh yeah, and I don’t want to spend a lot of time cleaning up afterwards.  Salsa Mac & Cheese is one of my go to meals because it can be made in under 20 minutes, in one pan, and, I can stay on budget with Kraft coupons.

There you have it.  A delicious, family meal in under 20 minutes so you can get back to the important things in life – like playing with the family outside.  We have on occasion used our homemade salsa for this which the kids really love because then they get to help cook dinner.
