Mac in a Hurry
I went on a fantastic walk today-- 4 1/2 miles along Lake Washington, up the Mt. Baker bluffs, along the ridge, down through Madrona and back. I walked for about three hours (there was a long chat with a border collie owner in there). When I finally got home, I was famished and I had mac-n-cheese on the brain. No boxed stuff in the house (I really am trying to cut back...). What's a girl to do? IMPROVISE! This is not a recipe, per se, because I just threw it together, but the guidelines should work.
Mac-n-Cheese in a Hurry
1 cup macaroni pasta
packaged shredded medium cheddar
Boil the pasta.
Make a roux (that is, melt the butter and mix in flour until it's thick).
Add milk until smooth.
Add salt to taste.
Add pasta to sauce.
Ta-DAH! I can see this as a weeknight go-to meal when I have a family.
