Kraft Dinner of the Week: R.I.P KD

In the spirit of Halloween, I created my own little KD.  It didn't photograph well, but it tasted good and got the basic look idea I was going for, so I am sharing it with you, so you can have one more idea to add to your Halloween lunches for your child, or you, if you are whimsical about this holiday (like me)



Kraft Dinner, or similar macaroni, in white cheddar flavor

1 cup of chopped spinach (can be frozen spinach cubes too)

A few drops of green food coloring 

1/2 cup of grated mozzarella, or white cheddar, or a few slices of processed mozzarella

3 hard boiled eggs (or as many as you see fit depending on your serving sizes, I do two generous ones, you might not want that!)


Prepare KD, adding spinach to the last 3-4 minutes (no matter what your cooking method is, I boil)  Mix as directed and add extra cheese and food coloring if desired.  Put into the bowls.  Peel your hard boiled eggs and cut in half long ways.  Place three halves of eggs into the top of KD to make gleaming white tombstones.  You could experiment with food pens, colorings or tinted mayo piped onto the eggs to make crosses and R.I.P's, which I did, but if you do that, make sure you cool the eggs first, which I did not, and the heat from the eggs melted off my mayo so it wasn't so pretty by the time I found my camera.  If you have etable flowers or are handy with an apple peeler you could design or add some flowers for your graves. Eggs can be substituted by sliced hot dogs or maybe even cheese strings if you like, get creative ;)
