Macaroni & Cheese for grown-up

Our household does not follow a regular schedule. Since both of us work in a tourism industry related field, we usually work when other people are off. We celebrate holidays when we can, Thanksgiving sometime in November, and Christmas sometime in January. This is why I am posting this Macaroni and Cheese recipe for grown-up today. For us the holidays are just another day, so for all of you out there that are in the same situation, savor!
