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.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

Leftover Borscht made from some of the huge beets from my garden.

If you don't like the food, have more wine!

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.
