Today’s all about thanks and calories. So I thought a post about the new book Mac and Cheese would be perfect.
I know it’s not the traditional Thanksgiving fare, but mac and cheese is warm, gooey, all-American deliciousness. I am so thankful for it.
The dish can’t go wrong. Everyone will eat it–even the pickiest of kids. It doesn’t involve fancy ingredients (usually), and most recipes are not complicated. If you make a big batch–and some is actually left over–you can reheat it all week long. This new book, Mac and Cheese, breaks down how to pick the perfect cheese combinations and how to get the sauce right. The author Ellen Brown definitely got me thinking out of the box. She includes classic recipes and also new twists. Just typing the words ‘Big Kid Mac with Spinach, Caramelized Onions and Truffle Oil’ makes my mouth water and my belly rumble. I am making it this weekend as an excuse to get my 5-year-old to eat his spinach. And how about ‘Alpine Mac and Cheese with Bacon and Gruyere?’ Yes. Thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving! May you be stuffed with good food and big love.
