Mac never had any special food requests. He just ate whatever I cooked and placed before him. That made meal preparation easy. If I tried a new recipe, he never had any negative comments.
Since Mac never told me what food he was craving, I would often give him two choices and he would tell me which out of the two he preferred. This particular day I remember I asked him, "Do you want Macaroni & Cheese or Potatoes?" His favorite starch was potatoes so it surprised me when he chose Macaroni & Cheese. That was good because I had a new recipe I had wanted to try. It came from inside the paper that is wrapped around a 12 oz. can of Carnation Evaporated Milk.
