Fern suggested mac and cheese for lunch so I got out the extra old Balderson's cheddar, a pot of water for pasta and put 2-3 teaspoon of butter in a sauce pan with a teaspoon of flour. Cook the flour taste off then add 1/4 cup chicken stock. Whisk smooth and add 3/4 cup milk, whisk smooth again. Grate 100 gm cheese and add to sauce pot. When pasta is cooked, drain and toss with cheese sauce. Salt was added to the pasta but not the sauce, cheese has enough salt.
A grind of pepper and a line of tomato ketchup adorn my plate. I've loved ketchup on mac and cheese since I was a kid. Fern thinks it's weird.
