Microwave Mac & Cheese

I wasn't planning on making a video, hence the pony, glasses, triple chin, and remember the camera adds an additional five pounds.  I have no idea what I'm doing with You Tube.  I've never put anything on there before.  Enjoy the video - it is probably my last.  And for those that don't know me - I'm a what you see is what you get kind of girl.  This is pretty funny.

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
2 cups hot water
1/3 cup butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. ground mustard
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups milk
8 ounces process American cheese, cubed

In a 2 qt. microwave safe dish, combine first seven ingredients.  Cover and microwave on high for 3 1/3 minutes; stir.  Cover; cook at 50% power for 4 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil, rotating a half turn once. 

Combine flour and milk until smooth; stir into macaroni mixture.  Add cheese.  Cover and cook on high for 6-8 minutes or until the macaroni is tender and sauce is bubbly, rotating a half turn once and stirring every 3 minutes.

The video is look and sound super...the recipe looks easy and delicious. I like the way you call you kids for dinner- reminds me of myself! Do you think I could use regular Cheddar cheese in the recipe, or does it need to be processed cheese such as Velveeta?

Yvonne, yes! I think you could use regular cheddar cheese. I'm not sure how much to tell you to use in place of it, but maybe start with 1 cup since the recipe called for 8 oz. and then you can always add more if you want. It is tasty.
