Last night I made Elvis Presley macaroni and cheese for dinner. As we were eating it I mentioned that the recipe said it serves four, but I couldn’t imagine eating a quarter of the pan. The C-man looked up and said “maybe it serves four Elvises.”
Part of Monday’s lunch conversation:
Princess O: Quick, what is the most American thing you can think of?
The C-Man: Chinese food
The C-Man has The Croup. It has been a while since his last episode, and of course that was at the house not at the apartment. So at 3:30 this morning I rolled out to Wal-Mart to get a vaporizor. When I checked out the woman said “Thanks and have a great night”.
I was thinking to myself “I am buying a vaporizer at 3:30 in the morning. This is not shaping up to be a “great night”. So, thanks but I have other plans.
Elvis Presley Macaroni and Cheese
- 8 ounces of elbow macaroni
- 2 cups of crumbled American cheese
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup milk
- 1 and 1/2 tbs butter
Preheat oven to 375. Cook the macaroni until tender and drain. Add flour, mustard and 1 cup of cheese to the pan and stir until the cheese is melty. Add salt and pepper. Pour milk into the pan and stir until well blended. Pour into a casserole dish, dot with butter and top with the rest of the cheese. Bake for about 45 minutes.
