mac and cheese for kids (i have an adult recipe that's different)
Boil 1/2 pound of elbow macaroni or whatever pasta you want.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in pot, when melted add 2 tablespoons flour, stir for a minute then add 1 1/4 cups of warm milk slowly. Stir a minute then add 1 1/4 cups shredded or cubed cheese (i don't measure i just take a chunk of cheese and dice it up, toss it in). We like cheese around here. Add some pepper, little bit of salt and dash of nutmeg. Mix and when pasta is done, introduce them to each other and pour into a buttered casserole dish and bake until bubbly, about 20-30 minutes. I put these in baby food jars and freeze them that way. Quick meals for him. I use baby food jars for this, kitchery (not true kitchery...enhanced ld kitchery), chili, soup, whatever. You see what they are, it's the perfect portion for a main course and it's easy to microwave and put into a dish.
We like ours topped with sliced tomatos. You can also add bread crumbs or broccoli. Usually though, we eat our broccoli all steamed with cheese sauce poured over it and share a plate.
BTW, you can make extra sauce and freeze just that. Add it to whatever...quicky meals.
