Baked Macaroni and Cheese

I could sooooooooo eat Mac n Cheese every night! I made my self sick when I was a little girl by stuffing myself with mac n cheese because I was afraid I wouldn't get seconds and my big brother (Michael) would eat it all! Well needless to say I was up all night.. and it was quite a while before I ate any more, but I did try it again, just didn't pig out on it. Well ... to this day I could eat it every day just not in big helpings, I "try" to control myself lol :)
