I, like so many people, have an ex. I feel confident saying that most people have an ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband/friend. And if you happen to live in a small city that no one ever leaves chances are you will run into your ex-boyfriend. Then you might do some Facebook stalking* to see how much worse off his life is now that you aren’t in it, and find out he has a new girlfriend.

Not this happened to me.
But if it were to happen, chances are she would work at one the restaurants I regularly hit up for happy hour. Because I am a good okay person I would resist the urge to quote Fezzik whenever she walked by.
“It's not my fault being the biggest and the strongest. I don't even exercise.”
“I’m on the brute squad”
“Why do you wear a mask? Were you burned by acid, or something like that?”
Thankfully, I have fantastic friends who pointed out that my ex was kind of worthless***. And while I wouldn’t go that far, I will say the best thing I got from my ex-boyfriend was a recipe for macaroni and cheese.
This recipe is super cheesy, clocking in at over 2 pounds of cheese to 1 pound of macaroni. Its unlike any other macaroni and cheese recipe I’ve ever seen. Chili powder adds a subtle depth, cayenne provides some kick, and dry mustard adds its particular sharpness to the party. His mom once told me she wasn’t allowed to go to a family function unless she brought this macaroni and cheese.
