I’ve been sitting on this recipe since about 5 minutes after I read it.
Grate two of your half-pound blocks, including the mildest one, completely. Look at the big pile of cheese you have now. Unwrap the third block, look at it, grate a little off the end, and think about how far you want to go. There are no wrong answers here. Relax your mind and listen to what the cheese is telling you.
I don’t make mac ‘n cheese very often because it’s too delicious once we start eating it’s hard to stop.
Tonight I served it with a green salad.
I said, “Be sure to finish your salad. Your digestive system needs something to work with.”
The mac n’ cheese is just as fantastic as you can imagine.
It made me think of those links you see everywhere that say, “Click here to find about the 5 foods you should never eat.”
I clicked on it once but it wanted me to watch a 10 minute video clip and I’m sure the first 9.5 minutes would be shilling some ridiculous and overpriced product and the last thirty seconds would have the arbitrary 5 things. “French Fries, Cheesecake, double bacon cheeseburger, biscuits and gravy AND deep-fried deep dish pizza.” (That’s just my guess.)
Unless it’s “toxic waste” isn’t it okay to eat anything once in a while?
We’re not having this mac and cheese again until 2012 so we’re getting our money’s worth out of this pot.
I have more to say about pants. I didn’t want two pants posts in a row but since I opened with mac n’ cheese I think I can get away with it.
I ordered some pants from an online place where I buy stuff all the time. These are casual pants, not workout pants. The site said these particular pants run big so order your size accordingly. I went a size smaller than normal and out of the package the pants fit perfectly if not a skoosh snugger than I prefer.
But the give. Wow, after I have the pants on a couple of hours they are quite relaxed. I had on some slippery underwear and at one point I thought the pants were slipping off while I was getting on the bus.
The waistband is huge relative to the butt part. Whose body is shaped like that? I like the pants but I have to hike them up a lot. I’m not a belt person. I drink a gallon of tea for breakfast and I don’t want to deal with a belt.
Earlier this week I read an article talking about what looks like a totally annoying book by a soccer mom who discovered yoga. A ton of women commenting on the article wrote about swell and life-changing yoga was for them.
I had no idea people talking about yoga was so annoying.
I am so sorry.
I will try to refrain from talking about yoga forever.
Except for, I tweaked my back this morning carrying the groceries in. What’s the point of all this clean living and yoga if I’m always tweaking my back, shoulder, neck or other random part?
I was getting all excited about the zen-like mac-n-cheese recipe…did you give the whole recipe and I missed it? I’m sorry about your pants almost falling down. That would be a little awkward.
Mac & Cheese isn’t Mac & Cheese unless it’s baked. I’m sorry to be the one to inform you of this. I have a super-healthy Mac & Cheese recipe if you want it. Truly, it’s delicious AND healthy(er).
Oh, Pam! My stomach thanks you! My waist line does not.
Mmmm… macaroni and cheese.
I love cheese. I love macaroni and cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Sadly, I am allergic to wheat. And apparently I am now lactose-intolerant too. Life is very much not fair.
