Today was day one of four straight days of mac and cheese. Rachael Ray has what she calls master recipes and then she likes to make variations to the master, omitting somethings while adding something different which totally changes them up. All of them will start with a roux. I don't believe I have ever made a roux...I actually say this with a french accent...it was a new skill for both the me and my girl.
Her directions were really easy to follow so it went smoothly. I am glad we measured everything ahead of time. We shredded the cheese ourselves. I wasn't sure how many ounces of cheese would make three cups so we were a little short. Oops.
New skills- crowning broccoli and making a roux. I will have more to say tomorrow, maybe.
