In today’s lunchbox we are going to see the simple yet delicious macaroni and cheese recipe. I have used quick cooking macaroni and cheddar cheese powder for making this dish. But one can very well substitute it with the mac and fresh cheese.

Mac & Cheese:
For mac & Cheese, I cooked macaroni for 12-15 minutes and drained the water.
To the same pan, added 2 tbsp butter, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese powder, salt to taste, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp ground pepper.
Mixed everything well and cook till it becomes thick and creamy.
Sweet corn salad:
For sweet corn salad, in a bowl, add 1/4 cup sweet corn, 2 tbsp tomato, 2 tbsp onion, 2 tbsp cucumber, 1/4 tsp of each oregano and ground pepper, salt to taste and 1/2 tsp lemon juice. Mix well and it is ready!
Rest all store bought.
1) Mac & cheese tasted good while eating it during lunch time.
2) You can even pack this in a microwave safe container and reheat it during the lunch time.
3) All the vegetables I used for making salad is at room temperature. It tends to leave some water but I usually have my lunch within 2 hours after packing it. If you worry about it, you may pack the dressing separately and mix it during lunchtime.
