It's rainy outside today. Dull, gray, wet, slightly cold and with the slightest hint of impending malaise due to an extended forecast of similar conditions for the next week. Could anything perk you up on a day like this? The answer is YES: macaroni and cheese.
But not just any macaroni and cheese. We're talking homemade, with several varieties of cheese, maybe a bechamel sauce in there somewhere, topped with bread crumbs and love. But since most of us don't always have the time (or the talent) to make a giant casserole dish of macaroni and cheese ourselves, that's where restaurants come in.
This week's Food Fight will be Battle Mac 'n' Cheese. But we want you to tell us who you think has the best macaroni and cheese in town (we already have our favorite, which you can read all about in the upcoming Best of Houston
issue). We'll take the top two entries and brave the awful weather outside to test the mac 'n' cheese for ourselves.
Leave your suggestion in the comments section below and stay tuned for the battle results on Thursday afternoon.
