Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Mac & Cheese

One of the first meals my little Seren learned to request was Mac & Cheese.  I would ask what my girls wanted to eat and she would say " 'n cheese".  She loves it.  Both my girls do.  It's one way I can guarantee a well eaten lunch with them.

Homemade Mac & Cheese 
*serves two toddlers with some to spare
1 cup of elbow macaroni (I buy this in bulk)
1 tsp to 2 tsp of Cheese Sprinkles (optional; sold at Smith's in my area)
2 or 3 Tbsp of milk
1 Tbsp of flour
1/2 C shredded cheddar (medium or sharp)
Parmesan Cheese (optional)

*these are all guesses on measurement...I don't actually measure anything which is one reason I love this recipe.

Boil water and cook your macaroni until it's tender.  Drain water.  Sprinkle with cheese sprinkles (optional; I do this for extra cheesy flavor but I think with sharp cheddar you could leave it out).  Add milk and stir.  Add cheese and flour while still over low heat.  Stir until cheese is melted.  Top with parmesan cheese (real or canned).  Let cool before serving.
