And new mac and cheese!

I usually use Alton Brown’s recipe – it’s quick, it’s easy, and I don’t have to fire up the oven for it. But the other day I really felt like a baked macaroni and cheese. So I turned to Ina, as you do.

Very good! I added frozen peas and frozen corn before spooning everything into the baking dish and putting it in the oven and they turned out nice and crunchy, a perfect addition to mac and cheese!

A word of warning, this recipe does make a metric TON of macaroni and cheese. Ina says it serves 6 to 8, but there’s about a third of it left and I’ve gotten 11 servings out of it so far. I’ll definitely halve the recipe next time. I mean, it’s good, but I really don’t fancy eating it for the rest of my life which is how long it would take me to get through it all.

      So am I! The bloggers’ ennui seems to rear its head every once in a while, so hopefully I’ll be free of it for some time now! ;)

    Ah, why do Ina’s recipes always make SO MUCH food? (I made her Italian wedding soup recently, and we finally finished it off after 10 meals, I swear – or at least it felt like 10 meals! But of course the soup was really tasty.) Maybe she assumes we are all hosting fabulous dinner parties with lots of famous, hungry guests. :)

      I know! I mean, her serving sizes must be huge if she expects that six to eight people can eat a 9-by-13 pan’s worth of macaroni and cheese. She’s crazy! But, you’re right, it’s still so tasty. I just have to remember to always halve her recipes – no matter what she says!
