3 cheese mac

Macaroni and Cheese will live on in my taste buds as one of the best foods in the world.  Blue box or baked – if there is mac and cheese at a table, you can assure yourself that I will have some on my plate.

So, looking through my pantry and fridge this afternoon, I made up this one to take to community group tonight.  Enjoy it – and long live macaroni and cheese!
