Homemade Macaroni and Cheese with ham bits

“From morning till night, sounds drift from the kitchen, most of them familiar and comforting. . . . On days when warmth is the most important need of the human heart, the kitchen is the place you can find it; it dries the wet sock, it cools the hot little brain.”
     — E. B. White

On these wet, cold fall days, warm and creamy macaroni and cheese provides just about all the comfort I need.

    This looks good is there a recipe?

      I don’t use a recioe — just throw it together. I have a pile of grated cheese ready (more cheese for a more cheesy flavor). And I cook and drain the pasta (again, as much as you want). Then to make the sauce on the stovetop, I simply melt about two tablespoons of butter, add about two tablespoons of flour and stir together with a fork so there are no lumps. Then I add milk, maybe a cup or a cup and a half and stir and heat until the sauce thickens. Then I add the grated cheese and stir until it is smooth. Then I add the pasta. Stir and serve.
