This will be my third year hosting Thanksgiving in my home, and probably the tenth year I've been the "head chef." We stick with the basics for the most part – mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, peas, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, turkey, gravy, rolls. Other people inevitably join us and bring their own family favorites, which is wonderful. I, however, don't generally deviate too far from our traditional meal.
This year, however, I'm seriously considering a huge change to our holiday menu.
I contemplating making macaroni and cheese as well.
Of course I'm not talking about the artificial food-like substance that comes out of the blue box. Pretty much everything that comes out of our kitchen is made from scratch, and my macaroni and cheese is no exception. I just can't wrap my head around whether or not it deserves a place at Thanksgiving dinner. I know it's considered something of a lowly dish by some, but I really, really love its cheesy, melty goodness. (The best part? That area around the top edge of the dish where the cheese gets golden brown and slightly crunchy.)
What do you think? Blasphemy or heaven? I need some outside opinions.
