  1. Kraft Original Mac & Cheese with dry (powdered) cheese packet or the delux with the liquid cheese packet?

  4. I made this for my family reunion. The celery seemed to take it over and I do like celery. Next time, I will use less celery or add another box of macaroni and cheese. Great otherwise.
