And the chocolate chip cookies I've had a hankerin' for. Check out the pantry for the recipe.
Now before we get ahead of ourselves with dessert, here's what's for dinner:
(I don't use a recipe with this, just add stuff 'til it's right, the way Gram did. So I'm making some estimates here.)
I love all the many different pasta shapes; pretty much anything you like will work ~ macaroni, fusilli, penne like I used today...
Cook your pasta according to the package directions.
In another saucepan, melt about 4 tablespoons of butter and stir in about 4 tablespoons of flour. Make a roux (paste, another thing from Gram). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in about 4 cups of milk ~ we like whole. =) Then start adding your cheese. We use whatever cheese is hanging out in the fridge, so tonight it was some tangy Mexican queso and some shredded cheddar. Mr. Browning likes the sauce thinner, so maybe 2 cups of cheese altogether. Save some to sprinkle on the top when you pour the sauce over the pasta.
