It seems winter will never end in my parts. The snow just keeps coming and coming, the highways have been shut down several times and today there was an 80 car pile up. Luckily hubby was just in front of it and was spared. I love our Michigan winters but this one sure is hitting us with both barrels. Even the county has quit plowing, and mail delivery is nonexistent. Apparently that old postman saying, “”Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the postmen from their appointed rounds” doesn’t hold true in my neck of the woods. So when we have so many bone chilling days in a row it makes me long for one pot comfort food and today I felt like some good ole’ Mac and Cheese. I like to make my meals as simple as possible, and this is an easy recipe there is no need to boil the pasta before you throw it all into a dutch oven.
I mix all the ingredients in one pot and throw a few ham steaks on top. It couldn’t be easier, it takes under 15 minutes to throw it all together and just let your oven do the rest. It’s a good hearty meal on a cold winters day. I served this after my kids pulled 3 stuck cars out of our road, the cars weren’t even in the ditch the snow was taller than me all the way across the road so they just came to a dead stop when they could’t go any further. My kids used 2 of our trucks and the bobcat to pull, push, plow and tug until the cars were moved. I’m so thankful to have such good hearted, helpful kids.
If you’re looking for an easy dinner to make this is a go to for me every time, and the family loves it. Who doesn’t love a big bowl of creamy mac and cheese? What are your favorite comfort foods on these cold winter days?
