Cartoons from The New Yorker

I just came across two hilarious essays, one written by comic Kelly MacLean about her shopping experience at grocery retailer Whole Foods, the other by author (& mom) Maura Quint justifying eating all of her kid’s dinner. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did:

Whole Foods

Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Ps: Martha Stewart’s Mac’n’Cheese recipe has been my go-to. It never fails, but don’t try to make this low-fat by using skim milk, the sauce isn’t rich enough and makes the noodles a bit dry. I do use whole wheat elbows, and whole wheat bread though.
