I think boxed macaroni and cheese is a little scary. My mother made it at least once a week when I was growing up and I liked it well enough way back then.
But now it is not something I would seek out for dinner. Homemade is SO much better and really just as simple.
Then I saw this recipe for Mac ‘N’ Cheese soup. Wow! Sounds different and is probably delicious.
I was a bit put off by the boxed macaroni and cheese in the ingredients, but I figured I could try it out and if the recipe concept worked I could always figure out a way to use homemade mac and cheese in the future.
You know what?
The recipe is truly great just as it is.
I don’t know, maybe it is the broccoli and ham in it, but it works and it is definitely hands down delicious.
1 package (14 ounces) deluxe macaroni and cheese dinner mix
9 cups water, divided
1 cup fresh broccoli florets
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
2-1/2 cups 2% milk
1 cup chopped fully cooked ham
1. Set aside cheese sauce packet from macaroni and cheese mix. In a large saucepan, bring 8 cups water to a boil. Add macaroni; cook for 8-10 minutes or until tender.
2. Meanwhile, in another large saucepan, bring remaining water to a boil. Add broccoli and onion; cook, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Stir in the soup, milk, ham and contents of cheese sauce packet; heat through.
3. Drain macaroni; stir into soup.
Makes 2 quarts

I need a bit of light electronic magic to get me going on this dreary, rainy day. At least it is Friday.
The Rapture Of Your Design is kind of epic. Soft to loud and soft again. It packs all sorts of sounds and beats in.
