I will say I would not recommend allowing your child to watch TV while cooking normally because I have one word to describe Micah - DISTRACTED! I muted the TV while he read through all the instructions but Mac 'N Cheese requires some multitasking and thinking ahead and let's just say I was doing most of the thinking. But we got through it and he did everything but drain the pasta and pour the hot Mac 'N Cheese into the casserole dish. And it was delicious!
We added two secret ingredients: 1/4 cup of crumbled bacon and I had some shredded carrot in the freezer which I added to the water while the pasta was cooking. Yummy!
