22 November 2009

It has been a rainy cold day in Georgia, so Jim requested Mac-n-Cheese for dinner. While this dish seems simple, it is actually one of the most difficult dishes to make well. I have tried many different recipes and versions, but I am still seeking perfection. Tonight's version was pretty good. Without a doubt, there is no better comfort food to be had. Since the baked macaroni and cheese is so rich, I made a simple fresh salad with Parmesan crisp to lighten the meal.

I had a crazy week, so it was nice to escape to the kitchen today. I met with our outdoor furniture client in LA on Wednesday and flew back on Thursday. It was a quick but successful trip. Now I am planning to cook my favorite meal of the year, Thanksgiving dinner! We are having a much smaller gathering this year than usual, but I look forward to sharing my kitchen with a few dear friends. I reserved my fresh Kosher turkey today and will make my mother's Southern cornbread dressing. The rest has yet to be determined, so a little obsession will be required. May all your Sunday Suppers be filled with thanksgiving, and best wishes for a holiday season filled with joy and comfort.

The Menu:

- Classic Baked Three Cheese Macaroni

- Organic Spring Mix Salad with Homemade
Sherry Vinaigrette and Parmesan Crisp

- Old Fashioned Hot Caramel Sundaes
