Today we have a recipe for macaroni and cheese from the author of Shepherd's Pie, J.D.Webb.
One 7-oz package Creamettes
½ cup butter or margarine
1 ½ cups sharp cheddar cheese
1 ½ cups evaporated milk
2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
Cook Creamettes as directed on package. Melt butter over low heat and stir into flour to form a smooth paste. Add milk, stirring constantly. Add salt and pepper and cook until thickened. Remove from heat. Place drained Creamettes in greased bake dish and mix in ½ the cheese. Reheat sauce and mix with macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle heavily with rest of cheese and dot with 2 tbsp. of butter. Bake 20 to 25 minutes in 300 degree oven. If crust is desired (And it would be a shame not to have it) place in broiler for a few minutes or until brown.
Slather on plate and do not be shy about asking for seconds. Next day leftovers are great in the microwave. Fill paper plate with mac ‘n cheese, cover with second paper plate and zap for 1 ½ - 2 minutes. Enjoy and invite me over.

Mystery Author J D Webb
J. D. (Dave) Webb resides in Illinois with his wife (42years in Dec 2009 and counting) and their toy poodle, Ginger, losing all family votes 2 to 1. Dave served in the Security Service of the Air Force as a Chinese linguist and weather analyst in Viet Nam and the Philippines prior to spending 25 years in corporate management. A company purge promoted him to cobbler and he owned a shoe repair and sales shop for 11 years. During those careers he wrote short stories and suppressed an urge to write a novel. After making a conscious decision to live at the poverty level, his novels began forcing their way out.
With Shepherd’s Pie, J.D. Webb dishes up a deliciously enticing concoction. Part cat-and-mouse thriller, part tongue-in-cheek send up of the tough P.I. genre, Webb’s story is chock full of genuine thrills and hilarious tidbits. His tough and terse fiction might easily brand him as the Mickey Spillane of the Midwest. Give him a try. I think you’ll find yourself quickly hooked by this tasty offering.
