Easy Mac n Cheese

Hello all!!!!! I'm so sorry I've been gone for so long, but I think I'm back and ready to cook-well maybe a little bit. Long story short on why I was gone, I had a tubal pregnancy that burst and had to have emergency surgery. Lost both babies....., but the husband and I are ok and I am healing nicely from surgery. So that's that! :O)
Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers-they were definitely felt!!

Today was my youngest boy's birthday. We celebrated it last Saturday but today was the official day. For each birthday if we don't go out to eat, the birthday person gets to pick their dinner. My son picked hot dogs with mac n cheese. So I wanted to share a really easy mac n cheese recipe. No picture, but I think everyone knows what mac n cheese looks like!

16oz velveeta cheese
16 oz elbow mac, uncooked
1/2C milk
1tbsp ground mustard
1tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta to box directions, drain. Melt cheese in the milk. Add spices. Once melted add the pasta back into the sauce and turn to cover. Serve with ANYTHING!!!!!

It's really easy and super cheesy and yummy. I loved it and the birthday boy had 2 helpings. So I guess it's been a good day all around!

Here's a picture of the birthday boy and his cake (I made it too using a boxed mix with peanut butter cup candy cut up in the batter in a shaped pan.)

HAPPY EATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
