Mac and cheese

One of my guilty pleasures is mac and cheese. There is something about food you ate as a kid that will make even the worst of days so much better. I go two different ways when i want it. I either make it from scratch, or i take the boxed stuff and add some things to it to make it healthier.
So first, making it from scratch. It is actually not as complicated as i use to think that it was. You need to take equal parts of butter and flour (i’ve used margarine and whole wheat flour before – not as good – but works) first melt the butter in a pan, then add the flour and stir until the flour kinda melts into the butter. Then start adding milk (and keep stirring) it will start getting thick. At that point, take some cheese (1/4 cup or less works) and stir it in. Turn off the heat, add in maybe some pepper (or cayenne) add cooked pasta, and you are good to go. (Full recipe to follow in a couple days).
Second, the cheat way. Make a box of mac and cheese as per the instructions. Add in a can of tuna, and a can of kidney beans. Divide the pot into two (save one half for lunch)
Comfort food for one, completely doable!
