i don’t know why, but this morning i woke up in the mood for macaroni & cheese. maybe it’s because it’s raining outside. maybe it’s because it’s thursday, & i’ve barely scratched the surface of this week’s “to do” list. maybe it’s because i miss my mom & i miss having someone taking care of me. whatever the reason, i’m sure the mac & cheese will cure my blues.
home-made macaroni & cheese
(it’s definitely the cheesiest)
1 1/2 cups macaroni(this is one measurement i never pay attention to, i usually just dump the whole bag in)
1 1/2 cups of grated cheese (i just use whatever i’ve got on hand & i keep adding cheese until i think it’s cheesy enough)
1/2 qt. of mild
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp onion salt
salt & pepper to taste
cook macaroni in boiling water. once it’s cooked run cold water over it. butter the sides of your bowl or casserole dish. place 1/2 the macaroni in bowl & sprinkle with 1/2 the cheese. add rest of macaroni & top with remaining cheese. (actually, i prefer to layer the macaroni & cheese, spreading the yummy goodness all over!) in a separate bowl beat the egg, milk, salt, onion salt and salt & pepper, and pour over macaroni. bake for 1 hour at 300 degrees.
