Macaroni and Cheese for Two
THIS IS one of those dishes that our family calls "a Mama recipe". My mother rarely consulted a cookbook, so when asked for a recipe, she could only estimate.
I've worked out the ingredients to make it for two, but it can easily by doubled. It's simply a good, wholesome dish most folks seem to enjoy.
