A delicious spread of comfort foods, perfect for summer! Fresh cut watermelon, crispy fried chicken, and homestyle macaroni and cheese!
Aaron (my 9 year old) is our mac and cheese lover. We’ve tried many recipes over the years with mixed results and have settled on this one which is an adaptation of one we found online. He even helps me make it. You can use whatever cheese you’d like or a mixture of your favorites. We usually stick with cheddar or colby jack. Nothing pairs with fried chicken better than macaroni cheese, am I right?
Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese
16 oz. elbow macaroni, cooked according to directions and set aside
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. flour
3 c. milk
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 c. shredded cheese
Stir in salt; simmer on medium-low heat until thickened, about 8 minutes, whisking often. Turn heat off, then add cheese; stir until melted and combined.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until bubbly.
