Tillamook Macaroni & Cheese
Description: One bite of this creamy, cheesy concoction and you’ll never go back to boxed! Look for it to move to the top of your kids’ favorites list.
Ingredients:1 8-ounce package elbow macaroni
1/4 cup Tillamook® Butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper 2 cups milk
2 1/2 cups Tillamook® Shredded Medium Cheddar Cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cook macaroni per package directions, drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan; remove from heat. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually stir in milk and bring to a boil while continuously stirring. Reduce heat and simmer for one minute. Remove from heat.
Stir in 2 cups shredded medium cheddar cheese and the macaroni. Pour into a 1 1-2 quart casserole, and sprinkle remaining cheese over top.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is golden-brown.
Makes 4 to 6 servings
I will let you know how it turns out!!
P.S. Tillamook was my first area on my mission in Oregon. I loved this area and I love there dairy products. Right now you can only get cheese and butter in Arizona and there is nothing better. However if you ever visit the Northwest you have to try Tillamook Brown Cow Ice Cream. YUMMY!!!

In a college sense, this is like it must've been for the Yankees of the late '60s — no Mantle, no Berra, no Ford, no Maris — and yet it didn't matter to the Twins and the Angels and their long-suffering baseball fans.
The bill had come due. There was no mercy.
It said "Yankees'' on the jersey, and even though it was Horace Clarke at second base and Bill Monbouquette on the mound, the fans delighted in dancing on the ghosts of the once-proud team from New York.
On Wednesday night, the long-proud UA basketball team was at times forced to play 6-foot-6-inch Fendi Onobun at center, anybody with a pulse and a uniform at point guard and Zane Johnson, making his college debut as a zone-busting shooting guard.
When the Sun Devils won 64-59 in overtime, you would have thought it was for a berth in the Final Four. Fans rushed the court. Sun Devil football coach Dennis Erickson raised his arms skyward and hugged celebrating fans. ASU athletic director Lisa Love walked down a corridor past the UA dressing room and gave an associate a high-five.
We will be back so enjoy it while it lasts!!
