By popular request, I tried out Beecher's Mac and Cheese. I added a salad to try to lighten things up :)
Beecher's Mac and Cheese
I made an 8x8 dish with regular penne and 8x8 with Trader Joe's gluten free brown rice pasta. I couldn't tell the difference between the two. I used Bob's Red Mill GF all purpose flour fix for the roux. It tasted just like what you get down at Beecher's in Pike Place Market.
Pro tip: buy Beecher's at Costco. This mac and cheese is not cheap!
Salad with Herb Vinaigrette
The salad was a simple one of various lettuces, shredded carrots, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes. I thought the recipe calling for "9 tablespoons" of vinegar was odd (and I think I lost count so I'm not sure if I put in 8 or 9!), but the dressing was pretty good!
