Mac and Cheeseman Recipe–Another Belle Favorite

IMG_0389 My granddaughter is coming to stay with me for a few days and we’re working on eating more vegetables. What do ya’ll think? Would this make you want to eat your peas? Here’s one that every macaroni and cheese lover will rave about. Best part is its homemade. Its loaded with calories and all those sinful no-no’s so eat at your own risk!!! Live by the “moderation” concept and don’t make it on a regular basis, which should make it OK!!!  Enjoy! 🙂
