Macaroni and no cheese

I found some genuine, bright orange and sharp cheddar in my local grocery store. I was looking forward to having some really tasty mac-and-cheese.

Instead, I made a discovery. One does not melt the cheddar in the microwave. It doesn’t melt; it goes crispy and that doesn’t melt, either.

Now I feel like Scarlett O’Hara: Tomorrow is another day. And I have more macaroni and more cheese left.

Paula, sorry about that. Your comment made me LOL, though. :-)Spark, I made a new attempt, letting cheese melt in pan I just cooked pasta in. Much better. Needs more cheese, though.Chanpheng, I know you meant to leave that comment on my other post, but it is funny to think that petroleum is why my cheddar cheese didn\’t behave as expected.


Hmm… I think there are foods made from petroleum. Well, not whole foods, but various additives. Basically, there\’s a little bit of Vaseline in a Twinkie. I\’m rather grateful I never like those things. But cow\’s milk, salt and rennet are good.

OK, lay the recipe on me.And then it ate my comment. And it\’s not sending me emails either. Feh.Let\’s try that again: yes, a sauce, will post recipe to my blog here soon (this afternoon).max[\’Still recovering from hockey game last night.\’]
