Home Made Mac N Cheese

Growing up, my mom made the best Homemade Mac N Cheese.  She would send me down to the corner store to get a One Inch chunk of C.B. Sharp (Brand) & a One in Chunk of New Yorker (brand) American Cheese.

After the Cheese sauce was made, she would mix it up with the cooked macaroni in a Cast Iron Dutch Oven (Check out the Cookware Section of: Products I recommend) and bake it.  We used to fight over who got the crunchy, cheesy outer ring!

Check back this week.  Since Monday is a Holiday, I am off school.  I will be making My Homemade Mac N Cheese.

If you'd like to make it, here's what you will need:
Unbleached white Flour
Unsalted Butter (2 to 3 Tbsp)
3- 8 oz chunks of cheese (I typically use sharp cheddar, extra sharp cheddar, fontina or Gouda; Or I buy 2 large flats of cheese chunks at Chuppa's)
1 one pound box of pasta (macaroni or a curly type work best)
Brown Mustard
Fresh Ground Pepper to taste.

You don't have to bake it.  My hubby and little man don't like it baked.  So, I generally put leftovers in a Fiestaware bowl and bake it in the toaster oven the next day.  Kinda like lasagna, this stuff reheats well.
