(CNN) - Friday is National Mac-and-Cheese Day - not that we need an excuse to enjoy the classic comfort food.
It's enjoyed by countless people every day as a standard side item of American cuisine.
The food is so popular some restaurants build their entire menu around it.
You can spice it, salt it, freeze it and even fry it - so boil some noodles, throw some cheese on them and eat them up!
