Last night David (my boyfriend), and I somehow ended up making a test run of mac and cheese for thanksgiving dinner AND making breakfast for dinner. (we made a mess out of the kitchen...then we cleaned it up like responsible adults *yay us*) 

I was looking at recipes on pinterest the other night and i came across this picture of Mac and Cheese that looked sinfully delicious. (no really, it looked amazing). It was one of those baked Mac and Cheese dishes (straight to your hips dishes)!

So, I braved the grocery store yesterday (it was an absolute zoo!) 

Anyways here's what I picked up for this mac and cheese: 
1 box macaroni elbows
2 blocks of Kraft cheddar cheese (the one pound block) 
1 Stick of butter (melted)
1 Can of Evaporated milk
Bread Crumbs 
Salt and pepper to taste 
Step one: You want to put the macaroni noodles on the stove to boil 
Step two: Cube the cheese 
Step three: Melt the butter 
Step four: Combine butter and Evaporated milk in a bowl. 
Step five: Preheat oven to 350F 
Step six: When the noodles are tender stick them in a baking pan, combine the evaporated milk and butter with the macaroni (mix it together) Then add the cheese cubes and mix well. 
Step Seven: Sprinkle bread crumbs, salt, and pepper to taste onto the top of the noodles.
(this is what it should look like prior to baking) 
Step eight: You want to bake the dish for about 45 mins at 350F 
(when done baking this is what it came out to be....I as a little too generous with the bread crumbs!) 

The dish is absolutely delicious!! If you wanted to make a creamier mac and cheese you can add blue cheese crumbles and a Velveeta to the mix!) 

And for kicks and giggles here are some of the breakfast for dinner photos! 
(this is Edgar he is the special pancake of the bunch) I was on the struggle bus when it came to flipping the pancakes. 

I ended up making enough pancakes to feed an army! 

Then of course I had to make a breakfast face with my food because I am in fact 12. 

Do you have any good recipes for me to try? 

Keep Calm and Carry On
