Copycat Boston Market Macaroni and Cheese

Copycat Boston MArket Macaroni and Cheese

My daughter asked me if I would teach her how to make homemade macaroni and cheese.  It was like music to my ears.  I love that my kids want to cook and bake with me!  We search Pinterest for a good Mac and Cheese recipe and this is the one she picked.

My kids are kinda funny.  Let’s call it that for now.  They like certain kinds of things, even certain shaped pasta.  They were a little thrown back by the cork screw pasta even though that’s the one she picked at the store.  (You can’t see me but I’m pulling my hair out.)  So next time we make this I guess I’ll use macaroni noodles so they don’t complain, freak out, drive me crazy…. choose to not eat it.

It was cheesy and delicious even before it went into the oven.
