Love the retro cooking!

Tonight is my family's favorite, home made mac-n-cheese, broccoli & cauliflower, and for dessert egg custard (or the kids can eat that jell-o mold, yuck!)

Recipe for the Mac
Now keep in mind I do not measure, let me repeat that I DO NOT MEASURE, that's just the way I roll

1 box of elbow noodles, cooked al dente
1 2 cup pkg each of shredded cheddar, mozerella, & swiss cheese
cayenne (red) pepper
garlic powder
dry mustard powder
1 egg beaten
dollop of butter
some milk
salt & pepper to taste

preheat oven to 350
in a bowl combine the cooked noodles, half of each cheese, a sprinkle of cayenne (not too much!) a couple sprinkles of garlic & mustard powder, spoon or 2 of maragarine (you can use real butter instead), beaten egg and the salt & pepper. Stir until it's well combined then pour into a 9x13 casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and pour milk over the top (i guess 1/4-1/2 cup) DO NOT STIR IT UP! You can add some crushed up croutons on top for a nice crunch if you wish. Bake 20 minutes or so until cheese is all melty and bubbly.

eat it all up, mmmmm!
