Day 90: New Twist On Comfort Food

90/365 - September 27, 2009


So, the lighting is pretty basic and something I've done before, and the composition and plating aren't all that exciting. I don't care. I was focusing too much on the tasty-looking and smelling food sitting on the plate.


Tonight we made some variations on the classic comfort food combo of friend chicken and mac and cheese. I love both and was really excited to try a couple of new recipes.


On the right is a garlicky baked chicken. It's garlicky, crispy, and juicy. It's a lot like fried chicken without the actual frying.


On the right is a tex mex mac and cheese with green chiles. There are two kinds of cheddar. There's a rich mix of roasted poblano chiles, corn tortillas, and cilantro. It's ooey and gooey with a tiny bit of heat.


Final verdict: both are damn goooood. We'll definitely be making these again.
