Easy Peasy Mac and Cheesy!

It doesn't matter what day it is, when I ask the Little Girl what she wants for lunch, she answers:
"Macaroni and Cheese, of course!"

Personally, I think the blue box kind tastes kind of, well, boxy. I was spoiled years ago by a friend who made her own Mac and Cheese when we came to visit. Once I could cook for myself, I mastered the dish.

It's not fancy, but my favorite is quick, easy, and uses ingredients I usually have on hand.

Macaroni: 8oz of your choice               Shredded Cheese: 1 cup, whatever kind you like
1 Tablespoon butter or Marg.   1 Tablespoon Flour    1/2 cup Milk

Step 1: Cook the Macaroni, then drain it quickly and add back to the pot, and return to the stove.
Step 2: Reduce heat to medium, sprinkle the macaroni with a tablespoon of flour, and drop in the butter, Stir that around a bit.
Step 3: Add the milk and the Cheese. It's not perfect yet, put be patient and stir!
There it is, Mac and Cheesey goodness!
