It’s interesting how we judge things just from how the look or sound. we do this with food, with movies, with neighborhoods and even with people. We judge the book by its cover. It’s quite sad actually, but unfortunately this is human nature. I do it too. Like with this recipe for example. I’m kinda trying to eat healthier and when I saw CHEESY i was like “damn another delicious sounding calorie loaded dish” But I made it anyway and as i waited for it to cook I checked online for how many calories it had, less than 400!!! IN TOTAL!! Yes even with the butter, cream and cheese!!! who knew!! Though this depends on the type of cheese you use, if you use sharp cheddar for example the calories go up to 550. But thats still 275 per person!
A part from being calorie friendly this dish is also very very very tasty. The mixture of thyme and dhania was just the perfect choice for this dish. It’s actually felt like I was indulging in some naught dish while I actually wasn’t. This is actually a keeper.
