Odds and Ends

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.
