I’m still fighting The Deep Dark Hole and I didn’t feel like cooking at all last week. We ended up having take-out or pizza all week, except for Wednesday when I made my family the Velveeta Skillet Dinner. By Saturday I think my family (and our budget) was exhausted. Nathan and I decided we’d make ‘homemade’ Mac ‘n Cheese. I know…what the fuck is it with me and Mac ‘n Cheese?!?!?
I asked my Facebook peeps for their best Mac ‘n Cheese recipe and we went from there:
We don’t have the fancy gadget that makes elbow noodles so we improvised and made bow ties:
And as if 5 (or 7) cheeses, butter, and cream weren’t enough we decided to serve it with pork belly (a.k.a: side pork).
We over cooked the pork belly a little, but the Mac ‘n Cheese was super fantastic¹…yum!
I was so inspired by cooking dinner on Saturday night that last night:
We were back to take out…
¹Yeah, The Brainiac refused to try even one bite.
