Heather wrote a lovely post about our favorite Founding Foodie Thomas Jefferson a few years ago. We’ve talked a lot about how amazing Mr. Jefferson was and how much we both admire him. Somehow, I’ve managed to find a NEW reason to love Mr. Jefferson. Thanks to him, there is always something on the kids’ menu my two-year-old daughter will eat. Thank you, T.J., for macaroni and cheese!
The linked video says that President Jefferson even served mac and cheese at a State dinner. I love that idea! I wanted to have BBQ at my wedding but thought maybe people would think it wasn’t “classy” enough. But mac and cheese at a State dinner? That’s another level. Thank you, TJ! As the video said, “Every time you reach for your favorite
guilty pleasure cranky-child-placating-device, say a little thank you to Thomas Jefferson.”
