(Quote) John-746882 said:Sadly Marian my recipe lacks bread crumbs on the top of the Mac and cheese. My Mom used to make us Mac and cheese in a big yellow bowl and it would have a crust of bread crumbs on the top, which was by far everyone's favorite part. It's too bad none of us learned how to do that from her. The cupcakes--I'd recommend store bought chocolate and vanilla iced cupcakes. "Store bought" is my recipe for most things.
If you really love Mac and cheese it would be worth it to look into some recipes. I think you would then be able to even make it in bulk and freeze some... to reheat in the over or microwave.... or you can engage your "special one" in this endeavor for you. It could come in handy for Lent. I think it is a fairly simple process. I have researched several recipes over the years.
Some recipes call for some onions and some are probably just straightforward....mac and cheese. For those of us who like the science and art of cooking we would enjoy solving these dilemmas for our loved one.
I once made Rouladin for my German boyfriend when we were first dating. I made it at my folks house and took it over there for him and his parents and mine were amazed. REALLY dating and showing love can be a JOY and I hope more of us will experience that here.
OVER the years I made his other favorite meals and learned a lot from it.
