seventeen. make homemade macaroni and cheese

Making homemade macaroni and cheese was one of my 2013 New Year’s resolutions. Yeah I pretty much cheated on all of those, and just took stuff off my 25 before 25 list.

And thus continues the countdown!

This December, in a frantic last-ditch effort to complete all my resolutions, I made some homemade mac&cheese out of whatever ingredients were lying around the place. Which in retrospect I do regret, it was tasty, and I have just no idea how I made that dish. Once in a lifetime opportunity. Done and gone.

Mac & Cheese

At least it means I’ve completed number seventeen from my 25 before 25 list!

Check it off.

Yes, to close out the year I’m completing yet another item off my 25 before 25 list. Homemade macaroni and cheese is coming your way! I hope your expectations aren’t too high on this one. Partially because I’m not a cook, so results may vary. Results may also vary because I just do not know what I put into this masterpiece.

It happened like this. We had three different kinds of cheese in the fridge. I shredded them, and in the case of the Philadelphia cream cheese I spooned it out, and put it all in a pot. Added a little butter, a little milk. Stirred (over heat, that part is important).

All the while boiling up some pasta. When that was ready I mixed the two concoctions. (The one concoction with the pasta is probably more accurately said.) Put the lot in a large-ish dish sprinkled some bread crumbs and extra cheese on top and popped it in the oven.

I hope you weren’t expecting to try this recipe out, because I honestly cannot tell you what cheese was used to make it. I plan on feeding it to my brother when he arrives this evening, so the jury is still out on the taste, but anything with this much cheese gets a good grade in my book.
