Okay listen. I need your help.
I am trying desperately to find the most fantastic recipe for macaroni and cheese possible.
Possible. Do you understand?
I keep trying recipe after recipe and each casserole dish is a big batch of sorrow. I’m starting to doubt my ability as a homemaker and as an American. After all, vats of bubbling cheese and white, nutritionless pasta is what we rock. And we rock it hard. So where has my patriotism gone?
How can I make this happen? I keep scouring the Internet for recipes and trying them. I take them from sites with really fantastic food porn.
You know what I’m talking about – food porn. Blown up images of things melting or bubbling or flaking just perfectly. It’s sexy. It’s almost raunchy. And you’re huddled in a quiet corner as you fantasize about the possibilities that a cinnamon the size of your head could bring to your life. Or if stuffing a cookie with your favorite candy bar really does make it taste twice as good.
Why should you help me find the most amazing macaroni and cheese recipe ever? You should do it because a truly good macaroni and cheese is a kind of delicious that everyone should share. You should do it because I’ll blog about the one that truly rocks my world and I’ll take fantastic food porn pictures of it and link to your site or your cause or a picture of your dog – whatever you have that may make use of linking.
You should do it because I’ll give you a $25 Visa Gift Card.
No really – I will. That’s how badly I want a good mac and cheese recipe. And you know I’m good for my word. Remember my grand TheJackieBlog t-shirt raffle? Those folks got their shirts. Here’s proof. Doesn’t the idea of $25 American dollars make you want to scour the Internet and your recipe books for the best of the best?
So give me everything you’ve got – macaroni tips, macaroni recipes, macaroni sites – I’ll take it all. And I’ll labor over every word and ingredient until I am a Macaroni and Cheese Master. I’ll cook it all up like a mad scientist and when I’m done I’ll share with everyone the best recipe of all and I’ll give a $25 Visa Gift Card to the one who submitted the winning recipe. Tell your friends.
But only the ones who can cook. ♣
