Comfort food: Mac & Cheese
The ultimate comfort food? Mashed potatoes, chicken and dumplings? For me it's Mac & cheese. I have a long love affair of this food. It all started with the blue box. I ate this all time growing up. To me THIS was macaroni and cheese. Then I grew up, and moved to the macaroni and cheese with Velveeta. When I met my mother in law I was introduced to homemade mac & cheese. WOW! This is what I want to eat all the time- forever!!! It is a simple recipe to make. Elbow macaroni, cheese, I use several types of cheeses, sharp Cheddar, white Cheddar, fontina or what ever you prefer, and a little milk. These ingredients together make the best comfort food for me. If I make a 9 x 13 pan I can eat the entire pan in a sitting, so I don't make it that often anymore. Now, I make individual servings in small ramekins. Hmmm, I have macaroni in the cupboard, cheese and milk in fridge, I think I know what we are having for dinner!
