From Solo Lisa's Kitchen: Mac And Cheese
From Solo Lisa's Kitchen Thursday, March 4, 2010
After my last foray in the kitchen, I was stumped about what I wanted to make next. All I wanted was mac and cheese, the ultimate comfort food and cuisine of choice for cozy rainy nights at home. So I made this recipe from allrecipes.com. I doubled all the quantities in the instructions and used light/skim versions of the sour cream and cottage cheese to cut down on the grams of fat per serving, and after reading the comments on the recipe, I added some skim milk so that the leftovers wouldn't be too dry when reheated. I also sprinkled the bread crumbs directly on top instead of mixing them with melted butter and pouring the mixture on top.
One of the benefits of my cooking resolution has been packing what I made for lunch, which means I save what I would otherwise spend on takeout meals. Hey, more shopping money is always a plus! I'm seriously tempted to try roasting a chicken next...let's see how that goes...
