Homemade Mac N Cheese

I bet some of you don't know how incredibly easy it is to make homemade mac n cheese... from scratch. If you did, I know no one would ever again buy a powdered box mix and call it cheese again. You can even make it look like the fake stuff if you choose. I want everyone to repeat after me, "I solemnly swear to never ever buy or make boxed mac n cheese ever again." See that wasn't so hard. Here is how you do it:

Homemade Mac 'N Cheese

3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2-2/3 cup shredded cheddar
1 tsp turmeric (for color)

Melt butter in a small pot. Add flour and stir until all the butter is absorbed and the flour is moist. Add 1/2 cup of milk, turn burner to medium high and whisk until there are no lumps in the sauce. Add the rest of the milk and the cheese. Bring to a high simmer stirring until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and turmeric if desired. Pour over your favorite pasta. Add cut-up hot dogs and peas (or broccoli) for a complete kid meal.
