Lobster season has officially opened on the West coast and that means one thing...well actually it means two things really. First is that my Honey went out last night to go "hooping", as catching lobster is commonly referred to, and secondly that I got to watch a chick flick!
Ahhhh.... Mr. Darcy....need I say more?
You girls know exactly what I'm talking about it!
Come to think about it...maybe it means 3 things...because look what he brought home!
This meant one thing...I was definitely cooking tonight!!
Hmmmmm....Paella? On the grill?
The kids interjected a little and it turned out that
Lobster Mac and Cheese it would be.
I settled on the Ina Garten version, having watched the episode a while back.
I always love her honest, simple ingredient choices.
I've made her recipes time and again and they never disappoint, and this was no exception.
|Lobster Mac & Cheese|
The recipe was simple, and yielded a beautiful casserole dish of mac & cheese. The only changes I made were to use penne pasta and panko breadcrumbs because I had them on hand.
The finished product was lovely to look upon and the smell...Oh heavenly.
I could smell the butter and cheese wafting from the hot dish.
Then I scooped...
Simple, honest ingredients...spectacular finished results.
I served it unpretentiously with Asiago and Rosemary rolls from Trader Joes.
The kids even went back for seconds...and they aren't huge seafood fans.
Make again? For sure!
Just as sure as Mr. Darcy was over for tea last evening.
