Macaroni and Cheese 

So easy and super delicious!

I bag large elbow macaroni (i used skinner 24oz bag) cooked and drained. In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk 4 cups whole milk and one stick butter until butter is melted.  Do not bring to a boil, and be careful not to burn milk.  Add 3 heaping tablespoons of flour and continue to whisk, sauce will thicken.  Add one tablespoon dry mustard and salt and pepper to taste.  Next add 10oz Velveeta (cut into cubes).  Stir until cheese is melted.  Pour cooked macaroni into greased 13x9 glass dish, pour sauce over macaroni and stir until all macaroni is covered.  Sprinkle with one cup grated sharp cheddar.  Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
That's it! Family favorite!
