Declutter Thrifty Homemade Macaroni and Cheese for Hard Times

Declutter Thrifty Macaroni and Cheese
We ate some funny macaroni and cheese awhile back.  It was part macaroni, part broken up manicotti shells, and part spaghetti!  

~I made the sauce by whisking a cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch together.  
~I added it to two tablespoons of hot melted butter and whisked it in the pan over medium high heat.  
~I added a little more milk when it got thick.  
~Next I cut up chunks of cheddar cheese into the mixture and stirred.  
~I added milk and stirred until it was of a thickness I liked.  
~I poured this over the cooked funny macaroni.  

Not bad!  It used up odds and ends from the cupboard, too!  I guess I could call it Declutter Mac and Cheese!

Just one more way to be thrifty and frugal and survive hard times.
