Fluid ounces, dry ounces schmounces. What the heck, dude? Why is it that only in the US we require such a complicated system of measurements?
This New Castle appeared in my hand after my cheese sauce was ready to pour and the visual comparison between it and the pasta I had prepared was less than impressive. Although, you can't really tell from the pictures.
This wasn't soup I was making, but a delicious pasta dish, right? What the hell? I allowed my New Castle to guide me through my memory – ah, yes, Kristen, fluid and dry ounces are not the same, don't be such a dipshit, or non-homemaker type, I should say. I removed my cheese sauce from the stove, so it would not burn, and cooked myself up another batch of pasta – guestimating that I had about the right amount.
That seemed to have worked out fine and this is what I have so far (below) – I still have to add the breadcrumbs and brown it up – but I have to say, although not visually impressive, for a first-timer, my pepper jack mac n cheese is effing delicious. I'll post up a photo of the final product later. Happy Birthday Maggie!
