Childhood Favourites

Everyone has a favourite food, something that takes you back to your childhood and makes you warm inside. I love macaroni and cheese. I like it for lunch, I love it for supper. I will enjoy it hot or cold. But there are some things which it must have, if you want me to have seconds!

Rosemary's Mac 'n Cheese

5oog pasta (Any tube pasta, don't limit yourself to )
1 packet of cheese sauce (I buy the one you mix with boiling water)
30ml Dried Cheese powder (don't laugh, it's really good)
100g mozzarella cheese
250g bacon Chopped into bite size pieces
6 mushrooms
1 onion thinly slices
1 teaspoon dry chilli (this is optional extra)
3 sliced thinly tomatoes

Prepare the pasta as per the packet instructions
Prepare the chesse sauce as per instructions, stir in the cheese powder and the mozzarella, there must be no lumps.
Stir the cheese sauce into the cooked pasta.
Fry the bacon, onion, mushrooms and chilli until crispy.
Once it is crisp and golden add to the pasta and cheese sauce.
Spoon into an ovenproof dish and top with the sliced tomatoes, sprinkled with salt and a few grains of sugar on each tomato slice. This gives a sweet and salty taste to the grilled tomatoes.

A: Flatman and ribbon.

I am definitely in for the "Braisy Chain", it just needs to cool down a little before my family will fully enjoy the delights of braised meat.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
