Comfort Food on a snowy night

I've been stuck in my house all day as it's been snowing and I don't get new tires on my car till Friday. Anyway! I decided to leave the fire on all day and put my hands to work in the kitchen by making some sort of comfort food.

I opened my cupboards and realized I should change my name to Old Mother Hubbard. Hardly anything to pique my creativity. So I checked the fridge and all that came together in my head (that wasn't frozen) was mac and cheese. Oh yeah.

I whipped it up and decided to make a side chopped salad with spinach as the leaf with a honey dijon dressing. I made the mac and cheese in individuals bowls and they looked so yummy and cute. Yes, I said cute. Food can be cute. Homemade breadcrumbs for the topping. So easy, but takes time - which I had thanks to the snow. Now, what do I make tomorrow?

Here are some pics of the process.
