i've been craving mac & cheeze lately but i keep not making it (i'm sensing a theme here with my posts). i have two favorite kinds (if that's possible), and part of it is that i can't decide which one to make, but the other part is that, as documented, i've been a lazy lazy lazybones. back in my pregan days, i think i ate mac & cheese almost once a week. that all ground to a halt when i went vegan, but eventually i found great recipes, and yet i've only been making it "now and again," and i'm not sure what my problem is. i LOVE mac & cheeze. i guess it truly is just a testament to my laziness.
anyhow, tonight my husband started whipping up some dinner in the kitchen, and i headed upstairs to fold laundry. eventually the smells from his cooking made it upstairs to me, and the scent was really yum. when he called me downstairs to eat, i said, "it smells like my grandma's house at dinnertime!" which is probably weird, but it's true; it was reminiscent of some random collage of childhood memories that included "yummy cooking smell" at grandma's. anyhow, he unveiled the source: impromptu potatoes "au gratin," which he made with some kind of cheezy sauce, and it was sooooooo good. warm, delicious, and starchy, just like i like. it wasn't mac & cheeze per se, but it satisfied my craving just the same.
