It is very rare here in Southern California that we feel like making "comfort" food. Even in October. Usually salads, fresh fruit and grilled meats are more in line with our weather. But this week, we've been blessed with actual "Fallish" weather. So, I'm in a comfort food making frenzy. First of all, yesterday, I made my Mom's Chicken Noodle Soup. I posted the recipe here last February. Today I'm eating leftovers for lunch.
Since I'm heading for work in about an hour, I decided to make Crock Pot Mac and Cheese. This is not for the diet conscious, unfortunately. Is there a Mac and Cheese that fits that description? I don't make this often, but have tried different recipes in the search for the perfect Mac and Cheese. I don't think I've found it yet.
Here's the end result. It was good. Not AMAZING. I'm really not sure what AMAZING entails with regard to Mac and Cheese. Does anyone have a recipe they'd be willing to share? Here's this recipe:
Crock Pot Mac and Cheese
1 16 oz pkg of macaroni, cooked and drained
1 Tbl cooking oil
1 13 oz. can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup melted butter
Lightly grease the crock pot and mix in the macaroni and oil together. Next, add all remaining ingredients. Stir, cover, cook on low for 3 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
