It was a good night in the SoFla blogosphere with a good mix of posts that make up this morning's Sift.
A- Want a great mac and cheese recipe? Look no further than Daily Cocaine who claims the French make the best.
Get some decent boxed macaroni, cook it al dente, drain it, let it cool a little (don't rinse), and soak it overnight in some heavy cream. The macaroni (I like to use rigatoni) will absorb the cream. Exactly.

Order it baked with bechamel, per favore. It taste-a veri veri good-a.
E- While McCain supporters are raving about Sarah Palin's gams and putting up bogus yard signs, Obama's legions are doing some real work to insure he gets elected, according to Miami-Dade Dems.
F- The McCain campaign was being paid $15K a month by Freddie Mac right up to the time they went bankrupt, according to Bark Bark Woof Woof.
