Mac and Z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-zs (Or "Where Is Joey Tribiani When You Need Him?")

Rachel and I made this for dinner:


Alton Brown's Mac and Cheese
. (I figured I better blog quickly before I fall into a carb-induced coma....)

Verdict? It's a lot of work and messes up a lot of dishes. And it calls for extra-sharp cheddar, which we used, but which was so sharp that it was sort of bitter. The panko crumbs on top give it a nice crunch, though. And it has chopped onions in it and we both liked that. But, other than the onions, Rachel didn't much like it at all. And Mr. Pointy Sticks doesn't eat mac and cheese. That's a lot of mac and cheese to go through. I think I'll have to pass some to my brother.

I might be willing to try the recipe again but I'd use a milder cheese...but I'd definitely keep the panko crumbs.

At lunch today I finished the neckwarmer, except for the weaving in of the ends. I may sit and do that this evening while we watch an episode of The Last Detective.

Have you tried Alton Brown's suggestion to DEEP FRY leftover mac-and-cheese? Sounds awfully delicious...
