I'm back on the wagon with Make-ahead Monday this week. Tonight I made chicken enchiladas for dinner and baked macaroni and cheese for tomorrow night. Done at the same time; no dishes to wash tomorrow.
This very simple mac and cheese recipe is my mother-in-law's:
Baked Macaroni and Cheese
2 cups uncooked macaroni (I use elbows)
8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, cubed
2 cups milk
salt, pepper, paprika to taste
Butter casserole dish. Layer cooked macaroni, cheese, salt and pepper, finishing with cheese. Sprinkle top with paprika. Pour milk over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, until cheese is bubbly on top and dish has firmed.
