Easy Mac & Cheese

I've got a couple of "projects" coming to a head in these next two weeks, including final exams and projects for school, so I've been working on things other than updating my blog.

It happens.

While I've been a bit on the busy side with other things, I haven't been too busy to eat.  I've been making some new dishes and experimenting with some culinary projects while I'm at it, so there will probably be a few more recipe/cooking posts in the next couple of weeks.

Just wanted to warn you.

Yesterday I had a hankerin' for some Mac & Cheese.  I practically grew up on the Kraft Mac & Cheese Dinners, and as a kids they did serve as dinner.  The last couple of times I've tried making more of a baked Mac & Cheese like my grandma used to, but I haven't figured it out yet.  I have managed to find something somewhere in between these two extremes on the cheesy pasta goodness scale.  It is pretty easy to make, and good to eat.

Easy Mac & Cheese Ingredients
1/4 Cup Powdered Milk*
11 Ounces Water
1 "Generous" Cup Uncooked Elbow Macaroni**
1 Can (10.75 oz) Cheddar Cheese Soup

*Can use 1/2 can milk & 1/2 can water in place of powdered milk & water
**Somewhere between 1 cup and 5/4 cup

Add everything except the macaroni to a small (2qt) pot, heating to

a boil.  Add in the pasta and cook, stirring often, for about 10 minutes.

Garnish and serve.  I like a little salt & pepper, but sometimes a little sriracha hits the spot.
