This week it was up to MrsBethorama of Supplicious to pick the recipe for CEiMB. She choose Macaroni and Four Cheeses. The recipe can be found here.
Since I never had real Macaroni and Cheese, except from Krafts’ one time, I didn’t quite know what to expect. Since I live in Holland and thus didn’t have all the right cheeses at hand I had to make some cheese-changes, I used Farmer Cheddar instead of extra-sharp cheddar and Manchego instead of Monterey Jack (The local cheeseshop-owner adviced me on the cheeses).
I halved the recipe and decided to make it Wednesday since my friend would come over and have dinner with me before we went to Ladies Night at the cinema (we saw The Women). Although I did like the Mac & 4 Cheeses, I did find it a bit bland. Next time I will use either a bit more cayennepepper or a stronger cheese like gorgonzola. But I will be making this again: to me it”s one of those comforting, wintery dishes!
