Mac, Cheese, Bacon, Rain

I hope I didn’t jinx those poor men and women in the field, but it poured rain today. I let the kids get totally wet, they were so excited.
Didn’t feel well, so Kid.01 made dinner. Had a little issue with burned bacon, but on the whole, it was pretty good. His recipe (he’s writing a cookbook, Kid.02 is illustrating):

Mac & Cheese

This ain’t your ordinary mac and cheese.
What you will need:
1/3 cup butter
½ cup whole milk
¼ cup cream
2 T flour
3 scallions diced
5 strips of cooked bacon, chopped
1 cup mozzarella cheese
3 T parmesan cheese
1 pound pasta
Set heat to 350.
First boil pasta. Strain and set aside for later.
White sauce:
Melt butter in a sauce pan. Then add flour and stir. Pour milk and cream in slowly while stirring your white sauce til thick. It’s cool.
The dish:
Put half of pasta in a large baking pan. Dish half of white sauce evenly on the pasta, put half of bacon and scallions on layer. Then put ½ cup of shredded cheeses. Do the same process on top of that.
Bake for 20 minutes. Cut and serve warm and enjoy.

Bacon. The food and the painter. Both good.

Oh WOW! I am impressed. Now, you should illustrate the cookbook and sell it on eBay and make some money. That recipe sounds like just the thing for a cold and rainy day.

Oh, no, my illustrations are nothing compared to Kid.02's. Will post soon.

And yes, bacon is always good.
