Sunday Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese

Many of you can agree that sitting through an entire Sunday with your significant other during football season can feel like the longest day of your life... especially when you're in a long distance relationship with no where to run off to. Except the grocery store - where I escaped last Sunday. I completely winged a Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe which happened to turn out AMAZING.  This Sunday, my boyfriend suggested we wing Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese.  Needless to say, we killed it once again and I highly recommend you try it too!
