Valentines Menu

I do like to go out for dinner, but I also liketo stay in for special dinners and try arecipe I wouldn't usually try. This year the menu is going to sound funny, but I have been wanting to try this recipe and have been waiting because it takes a LOT of cheese making it expensive and hard on the waist line. I find a lot of recipes from American chefs are expensive because in the states cheese, meat and alcohol are much cheeper than Canada. For example this recipe takes a total of one and half lb of cheese, making it about $15 alone on cheese.
Anyways I am making Spicy Macaroni and Cheese by Chef Sunny Anderson, which I saw her make on " The Thing I ever Made-Comfort Food".
The recipe also take whip cream and half and half, I am sure there are a lot of substitutions you could make, but as it is Valentines day I am sticking to the list. The total cost for the recipe is probably about $20-25 which isn't bad as it will feed 3 of us plus leftovers (maybe?) so still cheeper than eating out.

For Desert we are having Pineapple Upside Down Cake, which is something I love, but have never made. I got the:)

Funny to make Macaroni for Valentines day, but its what both my boys love and I think it will be tasty. I should post a review and photo tomorrow.
