Mac N’ Cheese

Working for a cheese company, I get a lot of variety and a lot of opportunities for free cheese. And Mr. Lumberjack got a recent job at a cheese company too, so we got double the cheesiness.

Since I had an opened block of aged cheddar sitting in a moist Ziploc and half a bag of shredded mozzarella, I decided eh…why not just throw it in a pot…my favorite style of cooking.

This recipe is so easy to cook and has some pow to that dish. It is all in the spices. Of course, I threw in some broccoli so I could feel better on clogging my arteries. Don’t stop, won’t stop am I right?

As always, dress it how you want. Recipes are meant to be tampered with. I like my Mac and cheese nice and cheesy, so I did a higher cheese to milk ratio. You have the foundation now, so do you boo boo.
