Monday Memories - Dinner Time, pt 2

This is the second part of an interview I did with my mom about dinner time when she was a child. The first part of the interview was about home cooked meals. This second part is about fast food - something that was brand new at the time.

In The Kitchen - Holiday Macaroni

For the three big family holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter) mom always made this baked macaroni. It's straight off the back of the Mueller's noodle box and it's sooo yummy! My sister and I started helping mom make this when we were kids and now often make it on our own.


Ingredients: Mueller's
2 tbs Margarine
1/4 cup unsifted flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
2 & 1/2 cups milk
2 cups grated cheese
8oz elbow macaroni
1/4 cup breadcrumbs

Directions:
"In 2-quart saucepan melt margarine over low heat. Stir in flour, salt, mustard and pepper until smooth. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in milk until smooth. Stirring constantly, cook over medium heat about 10 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 & 1/2 cups of the cheese until melted. Turn macaroni into greased 2-quart casserole. Pour cheese mixture of macaroni; mix well. Mix remaining cheese and bread crumbs; sprinkle over top of casserole. Bake in 375°F oven 25 minutes or until topping is lightly browned. Makes 6 servings."

When we make it, we double the reciepe and leave out the breadcrumbs.
