Genious Healthy Mac n Cheese

This was such a hit at our house, I had to share:

1 lb Elbow Noodles
1/2 lb - 1 lb Ham (I used Canadian Bacon, but any kind of ham would be really yummy)
3 Tbs Butter
3 Tbs Flour
2 1/2 Cups Milk
2 Cups Cheese (best if its 1 cup each of two different kinds)
2 Cups Broccoli
Salt and Pepper to taste

How To:
Cook the Noodles.
Heat the Ham
Steam the Broccoli

In whatever pan you used for the noodles, on low-medium heat, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour to form a paste. Pour in the milk slowly, whisking the milk and the paste together. Sprinkle in your salt and pepper. ( don't use any salt because the cheese is already really salty) Add in the cheese, little bit at a time, whisking it in to the milk (it should melt quickly) Make sure that the milk does NOT boil.

Add teh ham, noodles, and broccoli to the sauce.Stir it up. SERVE!

No pictures because this looks like almost any cheesy casserole you might make.

Back in the blogging world again

Hello long lost blog reading friends!

After the recommendation of a professor, I’m back in the blog world again. This time with a renewed focus, more vigor, and most importantly, a definitely plan.

I’ll lay out my plan and my ideas soon… sorry for the long lapse in fun craft posts, maybe we’ll have time for some of that too now that I’m not taking a full course load of graduate school classes.
