"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Cook macaroni and drain. Put a layer on the bottom of a 2 qt. casserole dish. Shred enough cheese to cover macaroni and put on top. Salt and pepper. Put a couple pats of butter on top. Put on another layer of macaroni, and then another layer of cheese, salt and pepper and butter again. Pour enough milk over top so there's about a 1/4 inch in the dish. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, stirring a couple times.

Personal Notes:
Josh & Sarah - this one's for you. As you know, this was one of the main meals at our house. It just so happened that whenever the kids asked if you guys could eat over, macaroni and cheese was on the menu. I'm sure you thought for a long time "Is that all she knows how to cook?" No, but it was cheap and I could make it stretch to feed a bunch of hungry kids. Enjoy!
