i was up at six this morning making macaroni and cheese. ugh! i boil the noodles the night before that way all i have to do in the morning is make the cheese sauce. this is the container i put his hot lunches in. i put boiling water in it for 15 minutes before i put the food in. he tells me that the food is still very warm at lunch (11:10).
lunch box mac n cheese
1 pkg. rice macaroni
2 cups grated sharp cheddar
2 cups grated monterey jack
2-2 1/2 cups milk
2 tbs corn starch
3-4 sliced hotdogs
cook macaroni according to package directions. if you’re making the night before refrigerate noodles.
mix milk and cornstarch in heavy bottom pan. heat. add cheese and stir constantly until melted and slightly thickened. put noodles in 2 qt. dish. add hotdogs. pour cheese sauce over mix and bake 15-20 mins. until thick and bubbly.
we like to sprinkle cayenne pepper over the top when served.
