On Friday (the 13th), Derrick and I were going to hang out at mine, have dinner, watch a movie…. That is until he ripped his fingers open.
He was at his chiropractor’s office and in true Friday the 13th form, sliced open his two index fingers. Badly.
Like so bad I had to pick him up do he wouldn’t have to ride a bus. And we had to go to CVS for extra large band aids and neosporin.
Anyway, I digress.
It was a crappy weather day, he was injured, our Friday night plans “altered”, so I decided to make homemade Mac & cheese.
Which I then shared with Derrick.
My Mac & Cheese has become sort of like my chili— it’s never the same twice and I just cook it by the seat of my pants.
This particular batch came out… Well.
My ingredients were as follows:
1/2 an onion
5 cloves garlic
2 cups mixed cheddar cheeses
8 oz Gorgonzola
1/2 cup Swiss cheese
I used some of the bacon grease to fry up the onion. Then added butter and flour to make the roué. Then milk. Then cheeses. Then garlic, salt and pepper. Then I stirred in the macaroni and crumbled bacon, topped with Panko and Parmesan and baked it at 375.
Derrick had 2 helpings. And then came back for some more on Saturday evening.
It was pretty tasty, and it’s nice cooking for an appreciative audience.
Next up, I think I’ll make him my Thai curry….
