Macaroni and Cheese

As in the rest of the country the heat wave continues here in upper Michigan. I was a little reluctant to prepare this Beef Macaroni and Cheese Recipe, but decided to turn on the air conditioner, and do it anyway. It doesn’t require much baking time, so it didn’t heat thinks up to badly. This recipe reminds of another recipe on this blog called macaroni and tomatoes- except it is seasoned a little differently. It defiantly was worth putting up with a little extra heat; I love preparing one dish meals and as it turns out the family cleaned this one up big time. So much for the left over’s. Enjoy
