My mac and cheese is almost done. Just simmering to thicken.
Mac and cheese is one thing that I have a hard time reducing to a one person meal. Even with leftovers. I'm going to have a lot of leftovers.

I had broccoli rabe. Andy Boy broccoli rabe is on sale. I think it is the best brand. Andy Boy usually has a lot of heads and not too many leaves. It never needs much cleaning. I just cut the bottom of the stems off just above the wrapper/tie holding the bunch together, and then I spread the bunch open and took out a few leaves that looked a bit tough and the rest was beautiful. I had two bunches and only threw away maybe 10 leaves. Then I rinsed 3 times in cold water. I put EVOO, sliced fresh garlic and red pepper flakes in a deep pot and cooked until fragrant. Then I put the broccoli rabe in pot and sprinkled with sea salt, ground peppercorns and then added the other of the broccoli rabe. Cover pot and steam over low heat for 3 4 minutes. Remove cover and stir. Cover and steam another minute or two until bright green and just tender (DO NOT overcook). I added an additional sprinkle of red pepper flakes.
