The summer is over, and my kids head back to school today!!!
The weirdest part is my oldest son is starting high school today, the same high school that my husband and I went to!
It seems like it was yesterday when they were this small:
Here’s my oldest son Paul leaving for high school
And next to leave for school is Claire! She’s been so excited for school to start! She was counting down the days. 3rd grade rocks!
And last, but not least, Mark is a 7th grader this year!
I hope they all have a great day!!
Now onto my stovetop mac and cheese with sausage!
1 TB. butter or margarine
1/4 cup flour
3 1/2 cups skim milk
3 cups uncooked macaroni
squirt of brown mustard
salt and pepper
5 oz. cheese of your choice
In a large pot, cook macaroni and set aside.
In a medium size pot, melt the butter and add the flour and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the milk, the salt and pepper and brown mustard and cook for about 10 minutes on low heat until thickened and bubbly. Add the cheese and stir until the cheese is melted.
In the larger pot, which has the drained elbow macaroni, add the cheese sauce and sausage and stir together. Cook for a couple of minutes until the sausage is warm.
I added a little gorgonzola on top as well as sprinkled with a little paprika.
It was delicious and I didn’t have to heat up the kitchen by baking it in the oven.
