Modern Cowgirl Macaroni and Cheese

Who doesn't love mac'n cheese?

There are so many delicious recipes out there for macaroni and cheese.  Seriously, I think I could make an entire Pinterest board dedicated to macaroni and cheese.  I could, but I won't.

This evening I was pondering what to make for dinner.  I have a menu, but as usual, I didn't realize that I was out of a key ingredient for tonight's dinner.  Thus, the pondering.

Modern Cowgirl Macaroni and CheeseAfter a quick check of the pantry and fridge, I pulled out some pasta and a variety of cheeses, intending to make a four cheese macaroni and cheese, but I knew that the recipe was missing something.

But, what?

The answer was Cowgirl Ride 'Em Rub.

I purchased it awhile back even though I don't ever make ribs or any other barbecue for that matter.  I'm a sucker for cowgirl or cowboy things.  (Go Pokes!)  So I'm always looking for ways to add it to recipes.  Tonight's macaroni and cheese recipe. . . success.  I was able to incorporate the Cowgirl spices with a modern twist on macaroni and cheese with the prevalence of the feta cheese.
