Ok, so this recipe is kind of out of character for me. I realize that this blog is supposed to be ~healthyish~ or whatever but this is real life. And sometimes, when you’re deep in the throes of real, real life, you need mac and cheese. And there’s just no way around that. And that’s fine, so just embrace it.
We’re getting into cooler weather now (even though it’s been 90°F for the past week) and that means my favorite thing: pot cooking. You know, the kind of cooking where you’re not worried about having the stove or the oven on all day, so you just throw a bunch of things in a Dutch oven and let it warm your house. This is one such recipe. It doesn’t take a lot of prep, but it does take a bit of patience. The payoff is well worth it, though, so stick around.
