Mac and Cheese

My boyfriend is away this week house sitting for some friends. Normally when he’s gone for an evening working at the hospital or out with friends, I like the time to catch up on my girly shows and eat whatever I want. But a whole week?! We’ve done long distance before (1 1/2 years total between study abroad and school schedules not matching up), but it’s never fun. When I was deciding what to make this week for dinner,
