Mac & cheese

We made mac & cheese tonight to accompany our packing.

8 oz. (=1 3/4 c.) dry elbow macaroni
2 c. shredded sharp cheddar
1/2 c. mozzarella shredded
1/2 c. smoked gouda
2 c. milk (we'll try evaporated next time)
1/4 c. butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 1/2 T. flour
salt & pepper
dried mustard
-- topping --
2 T. butter
1/2 c. bread crumbs

1. Cook the noodles. Drain.
2. Shred cheeses.
3. In heavy saucepan, use a bit of butter to saute the onions. Turn down the heat. Add the rest of the butter. Slowly stir in flour to make a roux, stirring constantly. Stir in milk. Stir in cheeses, salt, pepper, and mustard, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted. Turn off heat, stir in noodles. Pour in baking dish (8x8 pan or 1.5 qt dish, we used the same heavy saucepan).
4. Melt butter, stir in breadcrumbs. Spread over top of mac & cheese. Sprinkle with paprika.
5. Bake at 350F for 30 min. Let cool 15 min. Serve.

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Lemon Blueberry Bread

1/3 c. butter, melted
1 c. sugar
3 T. fresh lemon juice
2 eggs
1.5 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 c. milk
1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
2 T. grated fresh lemon zest

2 T. lemon juice
1 T. butter melted
1 c. powdered sugar (+/- based on desired consistency)

In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar. Mix in eggs. Add add lemon juice, spices, baking powder. Mix flour and milk in slowly together. Fold in blueberries and zest.

Pour into greased, floured 8"x4" bread pan. Bake at 350F for 55-70 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes in pan, then remove from pan and put on wire rack.

Glaze: combine ingredients, drizzle over warm bread. Let cool completely before cutting.

Note: if using frozen berries, keep them frozen until you need to put them in the batter. Also, putting flour on fresh berries before putting them in the batter will help to keep them separated.

Pho Dollar!

Pho Dollar, 322 W. Ferry at Grant is really yum. They have a vegetarian menu but you have to ask for it. I had the tofu with ginger and veggie spring rolls. It's currently cash-only. Pho Dollar - a real upgrade from Pho 99 on Bailey?
