I'm totally having Mac & Cheese for dinner tonight.

Yesterday I read Carrie's post about making a white sauce that can be turned into pretty much any kind of sauce you want. Including cheese sauce to put over pasta. Like Macaroni & Cheese. I grew up on the Blue Box and even though I loved the flavor, it never loved me back. I would eat it for dinner and spend the rest of the night nauseated. Nevertheless, I kept eating it anyway. I swore off the Blue Box a long time ago when I originally started this GF journey and since I really had developed such an aversion to mac & cheese from a box, I never particularly cared to try the gluten-free versions out there. Actually, twice, I did try Annie's but I hated it both times. Homemade mac & cheese however, now there's a weakness. My mom makes it the best! I remember the last time I had it, almost 1 year ago, Columbus Day Weekend. I've never been adventurous enough to try to make a white sauce or any other sauce really, but this recipe seems easy enough. I'm still trying to figure out the lactose/casein situation so I do still eat cheese and stuff for now. Last night after kickboxing I had to go to CVS to get my prescription so I stopped at the grocery store on the way back and picked up some cheese because tonight I'm totally going to try to make it myself.

Today is my Friday on a Thursday and I can't wait for 5 o'clock. Then it's off to get ready for the big wedding weekend! So excited. That means this blog may be kind of quiet for a few days but stay tuned for the wedding recap with lots of photos!! One thing I'm going to do tonight/tomorrow is pack a bag of food since I won't be home until Sunday. I'm staying at my aunt's house on Friday night and a hotel on Saturday night so I need to be sure that I have plenty of GF foods to keep me going. Ok well if I don't make it back here before next week, have a great weekend!!

Oh yum. That sauce sounds great.

Have a great time this weekend! I always find it trickey at weddings when it comes to food. Did you tell the caterer about your dietary restrictions, or are you planning on bringing food to the reception?

I didn't talk to the caterer, nor did I mention it to Lauren. I should have.
