Thomas Jefferson and Mac and Cheese
It seems there is some disagreement as to whether Jefferson brought mac and cheese to America. Whoever did it --good job! My mac and cheese has the kale/spinach puree and spicy pickled tomatoes in it. The pickled tomatoes are from my garden and a simple prep of rice wine vinegar, a little olive oil, cayanne pepper, cumin, mustard and jalapeno peppers, chopped rind of meyer lemon. Mix it all together and heat up and then let sit overnight.
Jefferson may not have brought mac and cheese to America but he did have wine with most meals. I think a nice zin with the mac and cheese would do the trick
