Grandma’s Macaroni and Cheese


I love mac ‘n cheese, seriously I just love it! In fact before LittleChefsDad and I were married I’d eat that along with corn for my complete meal! As complete a meal can get when you’re 20 years old. LOL!  It was one of the few items I knew how to fix and I loved it, still do. Even the gluten free mac ‘n cheese still has a place on my plate, thankfully.  I ate it a couple times a week when I was pregnant with the twins.  It accompanied fish and vegetables.  I had to have a starch to balance my meal you know 🙂

Grandma's Macaroni N Cheese

I grew up eating macaroni and cheese from a box, always a box!  So when I first tasted my Mother-in-law’s mac and cheese it was love at first bite!! So cheesy and creamy, the perfect gooiness.  You know any food that is described by gooiness is a must have!!   In fact, gooiness should be a real word! 😉Grandma's Mac N Cheese

Now whenever I make macaroni and cheese for the kids, this is the only recipe I use. The blue box got kicked to the curb when she told me how to fix this.

As with any great cook, Grandma, aka Cathy, doesn’t measure anything out.  I hope I do her recipe justice because I  just throw stuff in there till it looks good and gooey, yummm!

 Cathy doesn’t look like a Grandma, at least not the one that comes to my mind.  When I say Grandma, I think of an older person with gray hair up in a bun and glasses on. She looks much younger but is all Grandma, she loves her Grandsons! How blessed they are to have her!
