I was excited and nervous about this one. Since we have moved to our new home, in the country, and I am homeschooling I have wanted to cook lunches. Really, just cook more in general for my family. Sandwiches get boring & price wise I think you can fix a nice healthy lunch for the same price. I have tried a few homemade mac & cheese recipes and I could never get it right. But I have had good homemade mac &cheese, so I knew it could be done & I was not ready to give up on my search for a good homemade mac & cheese recipe.
I started with some elbow macaroni.
Many of Miss Kay's recipes start like this:
Every thing is all mixed up and ready to bake.....
Here we go!
I was so nervouse. I hate putting work into something and having it turn out...not so good.
It didn't happen!
Miss Kay's homemade mac & cheese (page 70) got a thumbs up from both boys & me. They said next time I could add a bit more cheese & I agreed. So that it the only change I will make. It made a big 9x13 dish and we will heat this up for a few days.
I did not figure points on this one yet, but I ate a reasonable serving size and was full.
