When life gets hectic and we don’t have a lot of time, we turn to one of our favorite comfort foods for dinner: Macaroni and Milk. This has been a family favorite from as long as I remember. It was a childhood favorite growing up as well and also a childhood favorite of my Mom’s. This family recipe has been around for a long, long time. Best part is that it’s quick and easy to make!
Macaroni and Milk
1 lb of elbow noodles
1 stick of butter or margarine
Milk – enough to cover the noodles
Salt and Pepper to taste
Boil the elbow noodles in water until cooked thoroughly. Drain water.
Over medium low heat, add in 1 stick of butter or margarine and enough milk to cover the noodles. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. Cook until butter is melted and milk is heated. DO NOT BOIL as this will curdle the milk and ruin the dish.
This is a quick and easy meal to make when you are out of time or rushed for the day. We make it when we cannot figure out what’s for dinner or we just won’t something that’s different. Sometimes we have it for lunch as well. Refrigerate leftovers to have the next day. Reheat on low.
I hope you enjoy this meal from our family recipes.
