Tonight while talking to my mom who is literally walking down memory lane in PA, she told me about a meal she used to make my sister and I when we were little and living on a very tight budget. Macaroni and Milk. I decided to make it for my kids tonight and you thought Mac and Cheese from the blue box was gobbled up quickly? This disappeared from their plates in 5 minutes! Even Josh was "yumming" after each bite! So, here's the recipe. Try it...you'll like, no I mean, you'll love it!
1 1/2 cups of macaroni. Cooked and drained.
1 cup of milk
1 stick of butter
Salt and pepper to taste.
Once you've cooked the macaroni, immediately drain and then add butter and milk, salt and pepper. Simmer slowly, until creamy and not so soupy. Be sure to taste it before you serve. It needs to taste salty, buttery, creamy.
We're talking major comfort food!
If you're on a budget...this meal literally cost me $1! Carbs, protein....what more could you ask for?
