What the heck does WFMWTWDIFE mean, you ask?

Works For Me Wednesday: What Do I Fix Edition!!

Just the other day Chris and I were discussing dishes I've been cooking way slightly too often lately. One thing he insists I could NEVER cook too often is my Mom's Made-From-Scratch Macaroni and Cheese. I know this recipe isn't rocket science and is pretty basic but you would think that I had cooked a gourmet meal when Chris sees this in the oven. I surely feel loved when I see his smile.

I'm going to copy out exactly how my Mom wrote it out for me. ;-)

Cheddar Cheese (mild or medium (cut up))
Plain Flour
Skim milk (1 cup)
Salt and Pepper

Cook the macaroni until tender but not overcooked. Drain and add a little margarine. Make a white sauce with the margarine, flour, and milk. Season with the salt and pepper

White sauce: Melt 3 Tbs. margarine in a saucepan. Stir in 2 heaping Tbs. flour until smooth. Carefully stir in milk, being careful to avoid lumps. Simmer until this sauce is smooth and thickened. Then add the cut-up cheese and stir until it is meltd and the sauce is smooth.

Mix together the sauce and the macaroni, adding a bit of the macaroni at a time to the sauce until desired consistency is reached. Pour into a greased casserole dish and bake at 375 degrees until hot and bubbly.
