Macaroni & Cheese party (Feb. 11)
Posted 13 February 2006 - 06:46 PM
It was very close between "Wendy Stewart's" version and Patti LaBelle's but I think Patti LaBelle's came through with a few more votes as favorite all around macaroni and cheese. A very good point was made that some of the others would make better side dishes and Della was right on when she said the chili mac was the perfect camping food.
The side dishes were phenomenal. A great big thank-you to scheilke's Uncle Dick for the venison sausage. It was such a treat. All of the salads were the perfect complement to the richness of the mac and cheese. And so pretty too!
And you can see how beautiful the desserts are. I was way to full to partake in any that night but I Paul and I had quite the treat on Sunday.
Thanks to everyone for coming! It was great to meet new friends (mysiumai and Tyler) and see old ones again (schielke and Katie).
You deserve a triumphant mouthful of meat........Lily to Marshall as he searches for the best burger in NY on HIMYM

dayne chose the leftover chili mac and my martha stewart's for lunch, I'm sure Martha would not approve if she found out these were sharing the same bowl!

The macaroni, it turned out, was from a Guy Savoy recipe, leftovers from a potluck last night. It was made with an immoderate amount of cave-aged Gruyere, I am told.

I still can't smell or taste much of anything, but when I'm well enough to smell enough, I'm going to make some mac and cheese.
Sorry I missed you all and the eats.

The desserts capped off a fantastic evening, I need that chocolate torte recipe!
Katie and I look forward to future events!

Well, since PapaChef emailed me his recipe and specific instructions, maybe he improved it in that communication! (or maybe it was the LOVE I added to it!)Man, Ben... you'd better hope PapaChef isn't lurking on this thread.
I even think that the version of the BOB I had was better than when I had it at the actual BOB!
