In an American TV program, “macaroni and cheese” is seemed to be used as a symbol of poor meal like “rice and pickles” in Japan.
However I couldn’t find such a definition for the term in my dictionary.
In the TV, it was used as follows:
“Would fight for your business, even if it meant living on macaroni and cheese?”
I’d like to know if it was used as I guess.
