How to Make My Husband Happy

I know, I know. Some men want elaborate five-course meals. But this is what rings my husband’s bells: mac and cheese. And I hope you enjoy the poofy shot while it is still in the oven. Now you know for a fact that my daughters did not get their flair for art food from me! dscn1253.JPG

  1. Well of course I can!
    This is the recipe I learned from my mother-in-law, and as far as I can tell, it is the best. But you have to be willing to close your eyes and use velveeta! I have tasted a recipe that used real cheese, and it was fabulous. But the creamy texture with velveeta is hard to beat. So here it is, straight out of Hot Providence.

    1/2 cup butter or margarine,
    1/4 cup flour (gently heaping)
    4 c. milk
    1 lb. velveeta, cut into cubes
    4 cups macaroni noodles, cooked according to package directions and drained.

    Melt the butter in the saucepan; add the flour and stir. Add the milk and continue to whisk until thickened. Add the velveeta cubes and stir until melted. You can season according to your tastes, including a dash of Worcestershire sauce or a bit of dry mustard or salt and pepper.
    Pour over the drained macaroni noodles in an oven-safe bowl. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 or 30 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.

  2. Thanks for posting your recipe! I’m definitey going to give it a whirl! How many does this recipe serve, Nancy?

  3. Oh, that all depends, Diane. Could be six. Could be one hungry husband over the course of two days!
