A plaque heavy arterial wall from scene 28 of the 70s classic "Fantastic Voyage" just prior to when Rachel Welch is attacked by antibodies.

Seriously, how about some type of cheese Focaccia?

Macaroni and cheese casserole.

Comment: Lou (Apr 24, 2004)

DING DING DING! We have a winner! JJG gets the book.

You know, I realize this whole thing is quite silly. But my macaroni and cheese (a souped up version of Muellers back-of-the-box recipe) is one of MJ's and my favorites.

Drizzle lots of fresh grated cheddar and even more bread crumbs on top, bake the sucker till it bubbles at 350F, then ten minutes more at 450F, and this is what happens. It comes out a beautiful orange/yellow/gold, and we decided to snap a shot out of unadulterated adoration. We hadn't planned to share it, but it looked so danged beautiful, even moreso against Bloug's stark white background.

So there you have it.

Jesse, next time you're near Detroit (ummm, let's not hold our breath), stop by and I'll whip up a batch for you. You can then start work on your next book--The Elements of Casserole Design...

Stunning! 25 comments in less than a week. Competitions is still *the* no. one traffic driver on the internet. Perhaps an idea for aifia.org? :-)

I don't know if you've heard of Alton Brown, but he has a show called "good Eats" on food tv. cooking meets science. he did a show on mac and cheese. here's the Recipe. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_18422,00.html
