Ingredients:  
2 c. uncooked elbow or spiral macaroni
3 tbsp. flour
tsp. dry ground mustard
3 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 c. milk
8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese
Seasoned bread crumbs

Directions:
Directions:
Cook macaroni al dente, according to package directions; drain well and set aside. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter slowly, then whisk in the flour and mustard; remove from heat, then whisk in one cup of the milk. Return to heat and bring just to a boil. As the sauce thickens, slowly add remaining milk until it takes on a nice, creamy consistency. Lower heat and stir in the cheddar cheese until melted - taste and adjust as necessary. Mix the macaroni and sauce in a baking dish, sprinkle with bread crumbs, and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until just crispy on top.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
There are many ways to make macaroni and cheese - this way is Andrew's favorite. I think the best Mac and cheese we ever had was in Wales, at a place called "The Georges." It was really custardy and had sprouts, seeds, vegetables, and all kinds of stuff in it that made it unparalleled. I think it tasted better too, because we ate it together in a tavern in Wales while on vacation and truly, madly, deeply in love. Now that we have kids, of course, they won't touch any recipe that has so many "exotic" ingredients- we're pretty much down to pasta, cheese, and bread crumbs. If you want to try a more "grown-up" Mac & Cheese recipe, check out the Cabbagetown recipe for "Mom's Macaroni and Cheese" in this book - it's as close as we've come to the Welsh version.
