MY MOTHER'S MAC AND CHEESE



My Mother's Mac and Cheese image

I remember my mother sending me to the store for 15 cents worth of cheese. The butcher would cut off a slice from a gigantic wheel covered with a wax-coated cloth. Mother would then blend that cheese into this tasty dish. Today, the memory of her cooking is like food for my soul. -Phyllis Burkland, Portland, Oregon

MAMA'S BEST MACARONI AND CHEESE



Mama's Best Macaroni and Cheese image

My kids say this is better than 'the blues' and gobble it up, even when I toss in a handful of cooked veggies like broccoli, peas, carrots, etc.... Make it a one dish meal with some tuna, cooked ham, etc... It is just as easy as the 'blue box' at least I think so and it is much healthier!
