This Saturday was filled with early morning errands and now hunkering down for another snow storm. We are expecting nearly a foot of snow on top of the several inches still on the ground from earlier this week. We were supposed to go out for Chinese food but instead I have pulled pork cooking and fresh cole slaw chilling. And since the diet is pretty much shot after all the indulging during these storms, I am making home-made macaroni & cheese. To me, this is the ultimate comfort food and I am re-sharing last year's post of my lower calorie version of this tasty treat!
My Ultimate Comfort Food - Homemade Mac & Cheese
Let's face it, Mac and Cheese is just not meant to be a low fat, low calorie dish. I found an online recipe with the total cholesterol being 160% of the daily allowance and there was 60 grams of fat per serving. So I doctored it up to reduce as much cholesterol and calories as possible without losing the taste. If you are watching your cholesterol and fat closely, you may want to skip this one.
