mom's mean mac [and cheese]

since i can remember, every time my mom asked what i wanted for dinner, i always said mac and cheese.  hers is amazing; like really amazing. to put it in perspective, you know how most kids loooove mac and cheese out of a box growing up?  well, i despised it.  it was that good.  so, i thought i would share the recipe with you!

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
8 oz block cheddar
1 1/2 cups uncooked elbows

- boil elbows until al dente
- melt butter in large pot on the stove
- add flour and salt
- stir until bubbly
- add 2 cups milk until thickened
- add the cheese in chunks and stir until melted
- add macaroni to cheese mixture
- spray 9x9 pan with pam and add macaroni and cheese to it
- bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

melting the cheese 
i made a double this time for all the roomies 
at my house, we eat it with right-out-the-fridge, rolled up lunch meat honey ham...
sounds weird but it's so good
