Mac & cheese, and meatloaf on a cruise ship menu ?
LOL... not at the same time. Maybe the point of this is comfort food geared toward the US market?
The problem here is that both of these American classics end up getting reinterpreted by a chef of another nationality, so they never really measure up to Mom's recipe.
Or my recipe. My moms recipe came in a divided aluminum tray and went in the oven for 55-60 minutes. Dessert remains covered of course.
No, unless it was on the kid's menu. I don't really want to choose those dishes. I can make them at home but actually really only make meatloaf. When I am on a cruise, I want to order exotic dishes that take too long for me to want to make or dishes that I don't have the ingredients to make at home. That's one of the joys of cruising. I love trying unusual dishes but sometimes I must admit that they get a little too creative with the names and scare me off. Then I always ask the server for his recommendation. I read recently that one cruise line wants to bring on Taco Bell. What! I'll bet that it will be popular with passengers who just want familar items. I think that is was Carnival and I wish them success with that. I just won't eat there. I do pay a lot of money for cruises to eat at Taco Bell but that is just me.
I can see these items at the buffet but not in the MDR. Since I'm retired I don't have to think.
I have seen Mac and cheese in the buffet, but I have not seen meatloaf yet.
Carnival's comfort food menu had it. We wouldn't try it
