Home made Mac & Cheese

When I was at church today I was so hungry all I could think about is what I should make for lunch. When I got home I found my new neighbors moving in. I asked them if they needed help and they said "sure!" So I went to change helped them move in and when I got home I was going to attempt the impossible and cook something.




Well here I am heating up some milk until it boiled then while is was boiling I decided to throw in all of the shredded cheese I just cut. Well it started to get really lumpy but it smelled good! As I was cooking I remembered My mother always putting flour in her cheese sauces. So I went ahead and added a couple spoon fulls of flour to the boiling cheese and milk. After looking at the consistency of the sauce... I briefly thought that there is no way I am going to be able to eat this. I mean it was full of lumps the oil from the cheese was separated. It looked as if I had just threw Pac-man into a pan and threw in his white ghosty friends too.




So after dumping it out and thinking it would be cereal on the menu. I thought I would google a recipe for cheese sauce. I found this video. http://video.about.com/cheese/Cheddar-Cheese-Sauce.htm




So I decided to try again here is the result

Jake, that looks delish, I'm totally going to watch the video. That looks way better than my home made mac n cheese. And I LOVE that you took pictures of your food!!! I do that whenever I'm proud of what I made too, and Todd mocks me endlessly about it.

Looks great and I must say that I am impressed! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'm still doing the WWMMD (what would my mom do) approach to life as well, although it's a lot harder on the pocket book since she liked to shop :).

Wow! Love your 'get up and try again' attitude here! Really thoughtful of you to help your neighbors move, too! It does help keeping busy, doesn't it? Especially when you are giving to others. Somehow, when we help others, we are refreshed, ourselves! Hmmmmm, a Godly principle? Yup!

Love your blog, Jake!
