The Perfect Mac'N Cheese For The Rough Days!

Hello, dear friends! Today, I'm going to share with you my all-time favorite recipe - the perfect mac and cheese. But I have to admit, it's been one of those days when everything seems to go wrong. So as we cook, I'm also going to enjoy a glass (or two) of my favorite red wine. To start, let's gather our ingredients. You'll need:

  • 1 pound of elbow macaroni

  • 4 tablespoons of butter

  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups of milk

  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

  • Salt and pepper to taste


Now, let's get started. First, we need to cook the macaroni according to the package instructions. While that's cooking, let's pour ourselves a glass of that delicious red wine. As we wait for the macaroni to cook, let's melt the butter in a pot over medium heat. Once melted, whisk in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. Let's take a sip of our wine while we keep stirring. Gradually add in the milk, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens. Another sip of wine won't hurt, right?

Now it's time to add in the shredded cheddar cheese and keep stirring until it has melted and the sauce is smooth. Don't forget to season with salt and pepper to taste. As we continue to cook, I can't help but pour myself another glass of wine. It's been a long day, after all.

Next, let's add the cooked macaroni to the cheese sauce and stir until the pasta is fully coated. If you want to get fancy, you can sprinkle some extra shredded cheese on top and pop it under the broiler for a few minutes until it's nice and bubbly. As we wait for the mac and cheese to finish under the broiler, let's pour ourselves another glass of wine. And there you have it, my friends - the perfect mac and cheese. I have to say, this recipe tasted even better than usual with the addition of a little red wine. Just make sure to drink responsibly and never drink and drive.

In conclusion, cooking can be a great way to unwind and relax after a stressful day. So go ahead and pour yourself a glass of your favorite red wine, and let's get cooking! Cheers!
