Four Cheese Macaroni

Four Cheese Macaroni & Cheese

This recipe actually wasn’t made by me, but my mom. Sometimes we will have dinner get togethers and bring dishes to each others houses. I think this one was right after we go the puppy and he was too young to go play with their huge dogs.

And speaking about puppies… did I ever share any cute puppy photos when we got Wyatt? Yes, I probably did, but here he is back in October at a whooping 6 pounds. As you can imagine he has grown quite a bit. He is now losing his puppy teeth and tipping the scales at about 30 pounds. I will have to share some more pictures of both the dogs next week.

Now back to the cheese, mom did the cooking, but I was in on the tasting and photographing of it and I can assure you it is extremely cheesy and delicious. I’m not sure exactly where she found the recipe, in a magazine probably. I really liked it because of the extra kick from the red pepper.

I can just imagine this mac and cheese at a BBQ this summer, the perfect side for a long and slow smoked pork.
