Couldn't sleep last night...


...so I made this ultimate comfort food
(a.k.a midnight snack ~I'm dangerous like that!)


~Baked Macaroni & Cheese!
How can a lonely night be bad when there's
that slightly burnt cheesy-crispy top crust to be savored.
yesss...that's actually my favorite & the best part!


Confession: I have constant craving for cheese...
My favorite would be Denmark's Havarti Cheese ~YUM!
"How about you...Any favorites ???"
anywayyy...
allow me to share more of my constant love
for all things 'cheesey' with you today...



~Lurrrve...these wooden cheese cutting boards!
Especially the natural uneven edges & the beautiful
wood grain, they add a certain rustic charm!
These one of a kind pieces are by Firewood Furniture

Well everyone, it's finally Friday!
say," CheeeeeSE....."
and have a wonderful+glorious weekend okie!
~XOXO*

SabinePsynopsis said...

If I can't sleep I'll go for chocolate and bananas... But did you really sit there and took pictures before you tucked in? Very disciplined! Happy Weekend!!!

Cheese may be my favorite food. I once met a girl that didn't like cheese and I was almost kind of offended by her! What a traitor I thought! On wednesday my GF and I went to this spanish tapas place one of the things we got where these round fried donut looking things filled with warm goat cheese and bell peppers! SERIOUSLY AMAZING!

Oh, those midnight snacks (sigh)..things never taste as good as they do around midnight...why is that???? speaking if why, why is it that everything I so adore is either illegal, immoral or fattening (but who cares, darlink, right? tomorrow, is another day!) oxox

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Dear Sarah,
that sounds so deliciousss~
excuse me while I drool*

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

wow, I adore cheese... but cooking at midnight? that's too much for me! well... I won't reject such a delish if someone invites me! haha!
have a wonderful weekend, darling! xo

Brandi said...

Why is there nothing as comforting as warm mac and cheese? It's one of my favorites too. My other two comfort foods are (1) bufala mozzarella on toast and (2) nutella bread pudding. Those can take any hurts away.

My mouth is watering.

Yummalicious x 100000!!!! Share please???

Kitty Stampede said...

mmmmmmmmm....I am such a cheese fiend too. I love Havarti cheese too. I think I want to go make a classic grill cheese...with all this talk, I'm craving one.
have a great weekend!

Jill said...

I could survive on wine, cheese and bread alone with the occasional plate of mac and cheese. Maybe some olives too...

daisychain said...

that does look good, but a cheese and marmite toasted sandwich is totally the best comfort food ever.

Down and Out Chic said...

emily said...

owl and peacock : melina said...

Ha! I didn't do my weekly cheese post this week, but I was going to write about Havarti! So look for that next Thursday.... :)

Kaleena J. said...

MMMMMM!! That baked mac & cheese looks awesome. I may or may not be drooling right now.

My midnight snacks usually consist of scrambled eggs or cereal. I need to start branching out!

Dancing Branflake said...

Cheese makes me so happy! I love brie and it's my favorite. That mac and cheese you made looks delicious and the burnt part up top is absolutely my favorite, especially when it's attached to gooey goodness underneath. I heart this cheese post so much.

North West London Girl said...

I have a terrible weakness for Cheese and I know its terrible for me but I don't care, I love smelly, creamy cheeses best of all and I pile it up thick on toast, or seeded bread - SINFUL - no wonder I'm a bit chubby at the moment.xx

Homemaker Man said...

I am starving now. And I have a pretty good baked mac and cheese recipe myself. I can almost smell yours from the pic.

Bathwater said...

I hope there wasn't to much of a need for comfort food! Have great weekend1

Miss K. You said...

Cheese is so delicious! I have been thinking about what cheese to buy to pair with crackers for afternoon snacks :P any suggestions? I hope you doing alright.. not being able to sleep does not sound too good. I'm glad you had a blast on your birthday though!

Mel said...

Yum I love cheese!

Jan said...

Cheese or chocolate (sometimes both) can't go wrong.
Happy weekend lovely Lenore x

Shaddy said...

That macaroni and cheese and the crunch of it sounds fabulous right now. Oh, the look of it has my mouth awatering.

Living in Wisconsin, home of the Cheeseheads, I do my state proud with my love of cheese. I don't know much about the fancy cheeses but cheddar, swiss, colby jack, mozzarella....and others I can't recall truly trip my trigger.

And then there's pizza. It couldn't exist with a good smothering of cheese to hold all the toppings together.

That's where we're headed soon, to Domenico's in downtown Beloit for their gooder than good pizza pie.

Bye, bye, dear.

muchlove said...

yum!! I could eat some baked mac n cheese right now.

drollgirl said...

i predict that i will not be able to sleep tonight, so please send me some of this. YUM!!!!

Caroline said...

I love Havarti, Brie, and Taleggio! Ohhhh...now I want cheese, crusty bread and red wine! Oh, and I want to dine on that in Italy. Can you make that happen for me?

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Dear Caroline,
What? I have become your concierge & travel agent now? hahaha...
'Italiano; Grazie Mille!'

Thank you everyone & have a delicious weekend! ~XO*

Karen Raye and Bentley Beargrass said...

Yum- definitely a winner as comfort food. One of my fave's is Kerrygold Irish Chedder's. But all their products are delicious.

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...

amy @ switz~art said...

if i was told to never eat cheese, i wouldn't listen. i love blue cheese and even gorgonzola (in very small amounts!)

we had jalapeno havarti with red pepper jelly on an angus burger last night....so delish.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Cheese is among one of the greatest things in the world...seriously!!

Oh cheese! I try to not ever have it in the house because I go a bit crazy when it's around! Yarlsberg, camembert, brie, mouse trap, edam - you name it - even the blue veins are OK in my books! You are pretty special to whip that dish up in the dead of night - I'd just make a lunge for anything in the fridge!!

Have a lovely weeke sweetie! XOXO's

Agnes said...

Aww you're making me so hungry!

The Cottage Cheese said...

Oh dear, it would be way to difficult for me to pick a favorite cheese (my love for it goes so deep - though I suppose you already knew that because of the name of my blog!). I love any good gouda, and Beecher's Flagship (cheddar) and Marco Polo are divine. Lately my husband and I have been trying a few "live" cheeses.

Your mac and cheese looks better than any other mac and cheese ever! Shhh.. don't tell my Mom I said that.

trishie said...

yumyums! i love all things cheesy.

The Gourmet Traveller said...

Yum! That looks seriously delicious!

Ela said...

That looks soooo yummy! Why don't my midnight snacks look like that???
