You know that person that threatens to sue anyone for anything, but have you heard of the Florida Woman who wants to Sue Kraft Mac and Cheese?

You can sue a smoked turkey on Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean you will win. But you may be able to Kraft Mac and Cheese and get away with it. So why on earth would you want to sue the cheesy goodness? Well, it’s because it took longer to make than what the box told her it would take. That’s right, and she hated that it took her longer than 3 1/2 minutes to get it going.

Kraft markets its Velveeta Shells & Cheese as being “ready in 3 1/2” minutes, and apparently, that wasn’t entirely accurate. It took the Florida Woman suing Kraft, saying that the directions lied and that it’s only 3 1/2 minutes per cup of Mac and cheese. A 15-page class action lawsuit was filed on her behalf.

A spokesperson for the Florida woman says this is due to the rising cost of prices, and she went with the cheaper version to save money. But the time on the box was misleading and sold at an unfair premium price. The lawsuit looks to garner $5 Million in damage and will cover consumers in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Utah, New Mexico, Alaska, Iowa, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Kraft has called the lawsuit “frivolous” in a statement saying it “will strongly defend against the allegations in the complaint.” [Source NPR]

What To Do With Those Thanksgiving Leftovers

Thanksgiving is coming, so prepare for the food onslaught! Everyone gets excited about the turkey and all the delicious food that will be eaten on Thanksgiving. And almost better than Thanksgiving dinner, are those delightful leftovers the next day (and the days after that). Sometimes, when you store Thanksgiving food properly, it really gives time for the flavors to set in.

It’s usually around day three where things go south. There is still a ton of food, but everyone is kind of “over it.” But you don’t want to waste food. Instead, try reimagining the ingredients into other delicious dishes. Here are some suggestions.
