4th Annual Mac & Cheese-off

What’s better than warm ooey-gooey macaroni and cheese on a cool fall evening?  5 different mac and cheeses!

We skipped last year, but this year was back with a vengeance and then some.  As with all previous years, there is a slight nod to veggies, but the cheese rules the night.

There were several with chile or spicy notes.  V was the only one that had a creamy white cheese sauce with ham.  K had a couple of secret ingredients: pureed pumpkin and miso!  We had 2 gluten free options, but you’d never know.  C made the green beans with a hint of ginger.

There was no clear winner because they were all amazing and so different.  If there was a winner it was the dessert.  M made the most amazing banana pudding.  Not only was it a beautiful work of art- it was tasty!!

I think this is the best mac and cheese night we’ve had.
