I have surely died and gone to fried food heaven

One of my friends was telling me the other day about ordering fried mac n cheese at a fave restauraunt and it sounded too good to be true.(drool drool)I haven't been able to get that heavenly vision out of my mind. I think I've actually seen it on a menu before but never tried it.I decided to look it up on the food network site and came up with this.......
Holy cow,could we get any better than PAULA DEENS fried mac n cheese!!!!!!!!!
I'm going to have to try this,it's not something I would eat often and I'm pretty sure 1-2 pieces would put you over the reccomended daily fat-intake for humans but hey,we only live once right!!!??
