#39 Momma's Baked Macaroni & Cheese

This one was so simple I truly thought it would taste horrible. I bought the ingredients before reading the recipe through and thought the stewed tomatoes were to be mixed in and not served as a side.  I did splurge and bought some very good sharp white cheddar which may very well have been the saving grace to this dish.  It was surprisingly very, very good and so easy I would definitely make it again.  Just plan for a long baking time.  Recipe here courtesy of The Two Bite Club.

#38 Slow-Baked Mac and Cheese

This was found on the bottom of my "recipes to try" pinboard on Pinterest.  I think I've made this before or something very similar.  I jazzed it up a bit with several liberal dashes of Hungarian Paprika.  The Italian Blend shredded cheese is just too bland for mac and cheese and I hope I remember to never use it again. I think a decent mac needs sharp cheddar, smoked Gouda or Gruy√®re somewhere in the mix.  You can find the recipe I used here.

an hour or so later - anything tastes good when you've been waiting this long!

#37 Avocado Mac and Cheese

This sounded interesting.  The avocado made it too fruity tasting for me.  I think perhaps more cheese is needed.  Definitely edible but not something I would try again.
