Grilled Pork Chops and Nigella's Mac and Cheese
I found two pretty pork chops in the freezer when cleaning it out. Doug grilled and nicely crosshatched the chops; they were tender.
To get Nigella’s mark on things I made her quicky mac and cheese that did not measure up to my homemade version. I make good mac and cheese. If there is one thing that I can do well, it’s gotta be macaroni and cheese. So I will make that at the end of the month. But in the meantime, to cross off another in the Nigella Express book, turn to page 179, the Instant Calmer Section.
You'll need the following:
8 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
8 ounces evaporated milk
2 eggs, beaten soundly
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cook the macaroni according to box directions and drain well.
Grate cheddar cheese. Mix in the beaten eggs and condensed milk. The recipe calls for you to toss this in a blender but if you would rather, hand mix it well. I chose to hand mix.
Now place macaroni in a baking dish and pour the cheese milk mixture over it. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes.
It came out a bit runny. I won’t make it again. The cheese was still clumped up and covered the noodles but some of the milky mixture swan out o the plate. If you have someone who does not like food to touch....…then this is problematic. Just wait until you see my mac and cheese! It’s so thick and creamy and golden brown on the top.
Serve it with salad and bread.....mmmmmmmmm...I Love bread.
For dessert – there was a tiny bit of Breyers coffee ice cream (not enough for a serving) and a about a cup of strawberries. Tip the ice cream in the blender, add strawberries, one overripe banana, 2 tablespoons honey and about ½ cup milk. Blend and you have fruity-coffee-honey smoothie.
Watched another disk of Buffy.....Nice evening.
