Tuesday ...

I went to my polling place and voted. And then I went to the store and I bought what I needed. And then I came home. And then I made this. And then I gave most of it away.

After I learned of the mac 'n' cheese place in NYC, there was no way mac 'n' cheese could be avoided.

But then, why would anyone ever want to avoid it anyway?

LOL. I was thinking EXACTLY what Angelo said, then I opened the comments and laughed. That there looks like some AMAZING mac & cheese! Recipe?

It's almost too basic to call a recipe, but I make a bechamel with a stick of butter, half a cup of flour and however much milk makes sense (I use 2% organic). Once that's thickened nicely, I add cubed Velveeta (yes, that's right), somewhere between a pound and a pound and a half (depending on how cheesy you like it), add cooked pasta, stir it all together, dump it in a greased baking dish, and then toss it in the oven, mostly just to brown the top a bit.

I don't do "artisanal" mac 'n' cheese with fancy cheeses. And I think mac 'n' cheese made with cheddar is grossly oily. I grew up on this version, and the bechamel and the Velveeta do indeed make for a ridiculously velvety sauce.

Thank you... can't wait to make it. And I think Velveeta is very underrated. There are some instances where it's just the perfect "cheese-like substance." ;o)
