Macaroni & Cheese

(The real kind, Otherwise known as "Grandma's Macaroni & Cheese")

1) Put a pot of water on to boil for the macaroni. Toss in some oregano and a little oil.

2) Grate up a lot of cheese and have it ready in a bowl.

3) Have ready a tablespoon of flour, some butter, and a little milk.

4) When the macaroni is done, dump it into a collander in the sink. Immediately put the pot back on the stove on very low heat, and melt some butter in it. Add the flour and a little milk. Stir constantly. When the mixture is warm enough, start adding grated cheese a little at a time. Add more cheese only when the stuff already in the pot is melted and mixed in with the milk, butter, & flour. The goal is to get a nice smooth cheese sauce. Turn the heat off when done.

5) Start stirring in macaroni, a little at a time. When you have either as much as you want, or it's getting to be not a cheesy as you'd like, quit adding macaroni and call it finished, making a mental note about the quantities to use next time.

6) Add smoked sausage if you want, on the side.

7) Eat it.
