DSCN5093-500x373I will readily admit that I am cooking (and eating) at the edge of my conscience when it comes to veal – maybe even over the line.  But once twice maybe three times a year, my desire for the supremely tender meat gets the best of me, and I put on blinders to enjoy the chic delicacy.

Macaroni and cheese is, without a doubt, the ultimate second-best comfort food, after my slow-cooked garlic butter and Parmesan mashed trio of potatoes, which I promise to post about between now and Thanksgiving (I swear! I totally botched that, having just posted the recipe a year and several days after Thanksgiving later).  But this is no ordinary mac and cheese.  Here, the lobster adds sophistication, making this mac and cheese recipe truly decadent.
