There are those days where nothing seems to go the way you want them to. Sometimes the world is caving in around you and all you want is a good book, a blanket, probably a glass of wine and that comfort food you always turn to in times of trouble. For me, that comfort has always been macaroni and cheese.
It was always one of my favorite meals when i was little. Maybe because I didn’t like a lot of what my mom would cook, but this was one thing that I really did. When I went off to school, I didn’t cook myself, so when I wanted to feel like I was home again, I would make that mac and cheese in a box. Economically delicious, with that touch of home that I needed.
So last weekend, I was seriously thinking macaroni and cheese when my husband suggested we buy a lobster for dinner. Of course I always love lobster, but I wanted my comfort food. And then the light bulb went off over my head and I realized I could have my cake and eat it too, or in this case make Lobster Mac and Cheese. It was delightfully decadent and comfy all at the same time.
There is nothing better than a good book, a blanket and a glass of wine to make me feel better. Oh yes…and a nice bowl of Lobster Mac and Cheese. It’s just like a big hug from your mom, telling you that everything will be okay.
And it will.
