I just finished reading a book that took place in Scotland. They called this dish Macaroni Cheese instead of Macaroni & Cheese. I think it makes it sound a little more, exotic. Just go with it. It will add a little spice to your life.
A few years ago we took a family trip and ate dinner at a local restaurant. My daughter ordered the mac n’ cheese. It was $8.00. I was more than a little annoyed when her dish came out, because, I immediately recognized that it came from a little blue box and that I could have made it for probably less than one buck. I was expecting something homemade, something fresh, something that didn’t include a packet of neon orange cheese. She was, however, delighted and gobbled it up. I’m working on refining her palate.
My idea of macaroni and cheese is something that is creamy and has a lot of real cheese flavor. And did I say creamy? I prefer a stove top version because it doesn’t seem to get dried out like the oven versions I have tried.
