RECIPE BACKSTORY
There is no story here, except that I cook about every night and so I gotta be creative. Kraft dinner doesn't do much for me, ammirite? So I dug around in the freezer and the garden, the pantry and the spice cab and the fridge, and this was din-din (and also Alan's lunch- you know who you are).
