Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

  • Please excuse the photos, I realize they are not that great.  We just have not had sunny weather.  It is cold and cloudy until about 5 in the evening and then pictures really don’t turn out.  So I just had to make due with what windows of light I had.

    This creamy macaroni and cheese is a truly comforting dish.  It is so rich and cheesey (don’t know if I spelled that right :)) and creamy and did I say comforting.

    My family really enjoys eating this dish.  But then again I don’t know of a child (or husband, but he is really just another child 🙂 love you honey) that doesn’t eat mac and cheese.
