Macaroni and cheese was one of the things that Zoe loved during her pre-GFCF days. And as much as I’d like to think that I’ve come up with substitutes for all her favorite things, this is one area where I’ve come up woefully short. I’ve tried to recreate mac and cheese three or four different times, and they’ve all been major “flopolas” (thanks to Lynn for that word–it very adquately describes my mac and cheese results). I’ve even tried a few boxes of mock mac and cheese; in a word, they stunk.
I’ve found some new motivation for trying to recreate this again. Alicat over at Something So Clever posted a fantastic recipe for a mac and cheese (not gfcf), which I made for lunch for Flamenco Dad, Ayden and me. Zoe was at school; I didn’t want to make it while she was here and have to tell her she couldn’t eat it. Anyway, Ali’s dish was great–Dad says it’s the best mac and cheese he’s ever had–but it left me wanting to try this GFCF mac and cheese thing again. So I’m going to do some more research on this and see what I come up with this time. I’m also calling on all my gfcf buddies out there for advice. If you’ve made it work, please let me know; I want to give it another shot.
By the way, here’s the link to Ali’s site
