Single Serve Mac and Cheese

Last night I tried a new recipe.  Homemade Single Serve Mac and Cheese
Step One–find a perfect mug for mac and cheese.  This one is from my cousin Grace.  She gave it to me for Christmas.
IMG_1498Step Two–Put 1/2 cup of macaroni noodles and a 1/2 cup of water in the mug.

Step Three–Put in the microwave for 2 minutes
Step Four–Take the mug out and stir
IMG_1504Step Five–put back into the microwave for 2 minutes
Step Six–When it is done, add in 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
IMG_1506 IMG_1507 IMG_1508 IMG_1509Step Seven–Enjoy 🙂

This was pretty delicious.  The only thing was that the noodles were still a little stiff, so next time I will microwave it for 2 and a half minutes each time and hopefully that will be better.  I’ll know next time 🙂
