Homemade Mac and Cheese

 I made macaroni and cheese from scratch tonight for supper. I don’t usually buy things like velveeta, cheese whiz or american cheese so I was pretty happy my Good Housekeeping Cookbook had a recipe that just asked for cheddar cheese. 

The roux had onions in it for extra flavour and instead of bread crumbs, I used cracker crumbs for the topping. It turned out pretty good. A double recipe yielded a very full 9x13 pan and there was still half a pan left for tomorrow’s lunch. (A few of the kids weren’t too hungry as we’d had clementines and zucchini muffins for a late afternoon snack, while others went back for seconds and thirds.)
