The weather has been running hot and cold here. Literally! I guiltily turned the central air on last week when the house just didn't cool down enough for our preferred sleeping temperature.
After sleeping for 10 years above an uninsulated front porch (the "summer porch" a lot of older homes had, which is basically a room that's almost all windows, so you can catch a breeze in the summer heat), we REALLY have come to like a cold room. This is definitely not the usual November weather- some days have been in the high 60's, and today is a much colder 34.
During one of the cold days, Jeffrey decided to write up a recipe we've been enjoying for a year or so. This is his own recipe, arrived at through trial and error. Every batch was just a little bit better!
Cajun Macaroni and Cheese is definitely not an inexpensive comfort food because of all the cheese, but the taste is so good that every time I bring a container for lunch, someone in my office comments on how good is smells. It tastes even better!
And as usual, we make massive amounts, because even with all the cheese, this recipe freezes very well. If you're going to go to all the trouble of putting this together, you might as well be able to enjoy your hard work for awhile!
Start water boiling and prepare the macaroni according to package directions. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
We like to package the leftovers into sandwich-sized freezer-safe containers. This size is good for an individual work-day lunch. Microwave and enjoy!
