The first dish I decided to make was a side dish. This past summer I visited my little brother in Seattle and picked up some amazing white truffle oil. I have been looking for a recipe to use it in since I discovered that it does not work with any of my current quick-to-fix-and-gone-real-fast meals. I settled on a classic with a twist, wild mushroom and white truffle mac and cheese. I actually made the recipe on February 2 but I settled on it and purchased all ingredients in January so it counts. I needed an event to make this very fattening tasty dish to share with others. Since the LOST (best show ever) premiere was on Tuesday night, I decided to make in order to celebrate with friends. After all, it is the beginning of the end but I will refrain from anymore LOST talk during this post.
The dish was not all that complicated and ended up being super tasty. I was very proud. I was able to find all but one ingredient at Publix. The crimini mushrooms required a run to Whole Foods but I am not complaining because I enjoy any reason to go there. I am posting the next picture for my sister who makes fun of my OCD tendencies. Perhaps when I start to cook more, I will be able to throw everything together as I go but at present I like to measure everything out ahead of time.

P.S.- Food pictures are fun but check out this guy, my nephew Jack. I can’t wait to see this chunk in a few weeks for his christening.
