As I’ve said before, I don’t like making decisions. When someone asks me to choose one thing over another, I’d rather have both. I like to have my cake and eat it too. Some may call that greedy, I call it enjoying the good things in life. Take this lobster macaroni and cheese for example, each component is delicious in its own right, but put them together and you quadruple the goodness, (it’s mathematically proven). Ordinarily lobster isn’t something that I have sitting in my fridge, but it was on sale we bought up a whole bunch of them. Instead of stuffing myself silly, as I usually do when lobster’s involved, I saved some to savour the following day. And I sure am glad I did, lobster mac and cheese is truly the best of both worlds. It’s the Pretty Woman story of the food world, (Richard Gere would play the lobster, Julia Roberts the mac and cheese). Everyday mac and cheese is ready for a night on the town when it’s paired with fancy lobster.
There’s no recipe for this one, I just threw it together. As usual, I made it with a ‘Go Big or Go Home’ attitude and included lots of good things like butter and flour to make a roux, old cheddar, parmesan, heavy cream and a splash of white wine. No matter how much you make, you will wish there was more.
