The One With 25 Types of Mac and Cheese

Legit. It happened.... read on down.

Friday night I had a Girls' Night Out for my ladies at work (much like last year's but all outside and without any pic the coats). The girls looked so cute playing golf on their Halloween costumes.  You can check it all out on my organization's blog!
After playing golf Saturday morning, we decided to go to the Mac Off in Mount Pleasant. We got there early, so we walked the bridge and burned off enough calories to try like half of the different macs at Patriots Point. 
Oh my gosh, the macs were so good. My personal favorites were buffalo chicken mac and burnt ends mac with bbq pork and cornbread topping. The ONE thing I did learn is that bacon+gouda is definitely the most overused combo in mac land.  AT LEAST half of the 25 mac and cheese vendors had both of these. Yes, they were very good, but I like some variety. 
Buffalo chicken mac - Graze /// Mac and cheese - Crave
Gouda and Bacon mac - Southerly /// Burnt Ends mac - Tavern and Table /// Lobster mac - Basico
Fried mac with ranch - Green Goat /// Bacon and Gouda mac - Coleman Public House 

Obviously the rest of the day was spent relaxing by the pool and shopping online for Christmas presents. Yes, we're nuts, but there's a method. My parents will be down for Thanksgiving, and since they're driving back (and we're flying in December), we're trying to get and wrap as many presents before December 1st, as possible.

Sunday we woke up super early to drive to Sea Island, GA to go to the PGA Tour's McGladrey Classic. What a beautiful course and place! We spent the day there and got back just in time to watch some Sunday Night Football.
All in all, successful weekend...only 4.5 more days until the next one!

Ugghhh, I need all of those mac and cheeses in my life immediately.

Ughhh I love mac and cheese that sounds so awesome! Kind of reminds me of the chowder fest, which I'm suddenly looking forward to now, haha. And I tried to start my Christmas shopping as well, but ended up keeping it for myself, so it was kind of a fail... :)

Jen said...

YES!!! I want all of these haha!
