You can make so many recipes if you know how to make a white sauce. This recipe is one I have used for years and it saves so much time in the kitchen. I still buy Campbell’s cream of chicken and cream mushroom soups to use when I haven’t had time to make this white sauce. This basic white sauce is awesome because if you make it up ahead of time all you do is add some cold water, cook and stir. I still use a hand blender or hand mixer when making it because I get distracted and forget it’s thickening faster than I think.
Most people know how to make mac and cheese, at least from a box. This is my daughter, Allison’s recipe that is the best I have ever tasted. My daughters grew up on mac and cheese with green beans that we grew and canned. We would add our home canned peaches or pears to that meal. One thing about macaroni is that is typically lasts about 10-15 years in #10 cans. The packaged ones have a shorter shelf life. Be sure and check the manufacturer’s expiration dates.
