Personal Notes:
President Reagan celebrated his birthday by having his favorite dinner -- macaroni and cheese. This recipe appeared in The White House Family Cookbook by executive chef Henry Haller and Virginia Aronson. The book mentions Thomas Jefferson's contribution of importing a pasta machine in 1787, and that when President Reagan was recuperating from his assassination attempt, the White House staff cooked his favorite foods, including this recipe for macaroni and cheese.
