Not the Best, and Late at That.
I'd had every intention of joining Kevin's Mac & Cheese-off last week, but as usual...the best laid plans, and all.
We did get around to making our own cheesy pasta (as Alex refers to it); using a recipe from the Tribune (which I cannot find now, of course); it purported to be the Best Mac and Cheese of All, or some such silly thing.
It used Gruyere and cheddar, and an ungodly amount of milk. Panko crumbs on top. Sounded wonderful.
Well, it was...alright. Ok.
For all the time involved, and despite the lovely ingredients, it was simply...'eh'.
Nothing at all wrong with it. There just wasn't anything special about it.
No strong flavors, nothing to grab you, smack you in the face and make you say 'wow'.
We ate it, sure. But we won't be making it again.
This month, we're keeping things Black & White.
Our canapes, our drinks; everything in Black & White.
The party is Saturday, 20 January; please 'RSVP' by Thursday, 18 January, with your entries. (thehappysorceress at gmail dot com)
