Mac and Cheese Bar

We recently tested the concept of a Mac and Cheese Bar at Caroline Middle School. This starts with a choice of original or queso macaroni and cheese, followed by a protein choice of pork taco, buffalo chicken or fajita chicken and a selection of condiments were also available to compliment the dish. The queso macaroni topped with buffalo chicken was a big hit with the students and staff!
