Pretending to be a Chef
Every once in awhile I get this feeling. A feeling of making something magnificent to eat which usually turns out not so magnificent but hey, at least I got off my bum and did something fun. With Ryan in Guelph for the next few days, I wanted to make some awesome lunch, dinner and snacks to start the summer off right! Tonight I made mac and cheese (with extra cheese!). I then lined a muffin pan with two pieces of ham and filled them with the mac and cheese. Threw them in the oven, took them out 20 minutes later and topped them with a touch of parmesan and paprika. Our salad was romaine with awesome tomatoes, bacon bits (real, none of that store bought stuff) and parmesan with some balsamic dressing. For dessert I tried my hand at some type of parfait. I just whipped up some vanilla pudding and added fresh fruit. However, the pudding turned yellow which made me a little sad but still tasted pretty great!
