We were having one of those days that no one could figure out what to have for supper. After careful thought and a lot of undecidedness we settled on this Simple Baked Mac and Cheese Recipe. There is not a lot of prep time and it is a very easy recipe. I am not a vegetarian by any means, so I decided to cook up some Brats along with the macaroni and cheese. It’s just a habit I guess, but I do like to have some kind of meat or fish with supper. If you like macaroni and cheese give this recipe a try; it’s delicious. Enjoy
