This is the way my grandmother made mac n cheese…absolutely wonderful….
1 lb bag of elbow macaroni
6 T butter
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup flour
3 cups milk
1 lb cubed yellow cheddar (Grandma used mild, I use sharp because I’m a rebel)
10 oz swiss cheese, cubed
cube the cheese
put the pasta water on to boil and pour a glass of wine (Grandma left this part out, but I adjusted the recipe for you)
Bake in a 350 degree oven until the Swiss is melted, about 30 or 40 minutes…
Grandma served this with canned corn and big glass of milk…I serve it with a green salad and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc…
not only easy peasy, but cheesy too!

So I hope you are ready for an update on the house, because here it is! I know that I am falling behind on my story (bad blogger), but I have been distracted with travel, food and wine! While I was running around the country, eating and drinking, progress was being made on the house. The next step was putting the forms in place so the concrete walls of the basement could be poured. Here’s what they looked like before they were put up…
and this is what it looked like after they were all up!
Onward and upward!!!
