Mom's Macaroni and Cheese

This is Madison's favorite food in the whole world!

1 (8 ounce) package elbow macaroni
4 T butter or margarine
4 T flour
1 small can evaporated milk
1/4 large package of Velveeta, cubed
1-2 cups of milk
Salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil and drain macaroni and set aside. In large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour with a wire whisk and cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes- stirring constantly. Add salt and pepper and then add in evaporated milk- stirring constantly. Add in cubed cheese- stirring often till melted. Add in milk till smooth and creamy. Stir in macaroni and pour into a round glass dish sprayed with cooking spray. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes.

TIP OF THE DAY: If we are having company, I double this and make it in a 9 x13 inch pan.
