Elitist aged white cheddar macaroni and cheese.
I have never claimed to be elitist. I'm poor white trash. I eat alone and sometimes all I want is some macaroni and cheese.

I go to the store and I'm picking the boxes off the shelf and I get several of each, for variety, whatever is cheapest.

I'm checking out to pay for my food and the cashier, who I can see is a fag and obviously a liberal with his tattoos and face piercings, remarks, "oh, haha, we call this 'elitist Mac and cheese!'"

OK, now I'm elitist? I'm spending a dollar for dinner.

What is going on?

Re: Elitist aged white cheddar macaroni and cheese.
It seems that the fag is correct in this case - at least at one time mac and cheese was consumed by the elite. Much like Herbert Hoover's famous "a chicken in every pot …" was made at a time when chicken was expensive for the average American, things seem to change over time owing to American ingenuity that brings the cost down - although I can't attest that the orange powder goo that is sold in boxes today has anything to do with "real" mac and cheese made from scratch.


How America developed its taste for mac and cheese

Macaroni and cheese in the United States is a tale of a food once served only to the “haves” that became a cherished must-have for most Americans. It’s a story that can begin, fittingly enough, with that most gourmet of presidents, Thomas Jefferson, who as American ambassador to France ordered a macaroni-making machine from Naples in 1789, so he could make his own.

“Jefferson was most likely not the first to introduce macaroni (with or without cheese) to America, nor did he invent the recipe,” states, the website for The Thomas Jefferson Foundation, which owns his famed Virginia home. “The most that could be said is that he probably helped to popularize it by serving it to dinner guests during his presidency.”

. . .

Adrian Miller included a macaroni and cheese chapter in his 2013 book, “Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine One Plate at a Time." It was eaten first by “European elite,” he wrote, then “America’s own upper crust -- eager to ape the Continental lifestyle -- followed suit when macaroni and cheese arrived in the United States.”
