Comfort food has never sounded so good—but as you’ve grown up, your childhood go-tos have, too! Today, we’re taking a delicious deep dive into the ins and outs of comfort food like mac & cheese, plus Stonewood dishes that are sure to satisfy your creamy, cheesy cravings with sophisticated flair. Take a look.
Why we love mac & cheese
If you’re craving mac & cheese and other comfort food go-tos more often these days, you’re not alone! With our routines changed and our lives a little less predictable, many of us have turned to comfort foods as a source of family fun and familiarity—after all, many of us are spending more time with the ones we love, and there’s no better way to bring the family together than with rich, soothing flavors you already know and cherish.
The proof is in the pantry: According to Business Wire, pasta sales rose 249 percent as Americans stocked up to spend more time at home, and boxed mac & cheese companies have been hard at work providing the convenient, cheesy meals its consumers crave most.
New ways to dig in
Of course, after you’ve gone through several rounds of your at-home mac & cheese routine, you may be looking for ways to mix things up! Here at Stonewood, we’ve got you covered. (Plus, these dishes can be enjoyed as part of our convenient takeout Family Bundles, so digging in together has never been easier.)
For a hearty, flavorful spin on your traditional mac & cheese, try Stonewood’s new Cheesesteak Pasta! Enjoy marinated ribeye and tenderloin cuts atop tender cavatappi pasta, caramelized onions, mushrooms and green bell peppers in a creamy cheese sauce that’s sure to satisfy.
