Menu Plan Monday and My quest for GF/CF Mac and Cheese

Monday- Mac and Cheese
Tuesday- Chili
Fri- Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and maybe more Mac and Cheese!

Since going GF/CF w/ Isaiah in October, my quest has been to keep his diet the same as it was, but w/ GF/CF subs...this isn't a very easy of my challenges has been Mac and Cheese...

Mac and cheese was a pre diet lunch time fav at our house, I also like it as a side dish w/ meat loaf and several chicken dishes I make, so needless to say we've missed it...I've tried a few different recipes, and even some expensive boxed items, w/ no luck...but today that changed, I finally made a GF/CF mac and cheese he would eat!!!! We both get so excited when trial and error finally pays off. I made him a huge bowl of it, which he scarfed down and promptly asked for more!

Here is what I used to make it...

De Boles Wheat Free Corn Elbow Style Pasta
2 slices of Galaxy Vegan Cheese
Dari Free Milk Sub
Milk Free Butter

I wasn't sure the cheese would melt well enough to make it, but it did...I boiled and drained the noodles, added probably a tablespoon of milk, 2 slices of cheese and 1/4 stick of butter, cooked until the cheese melted all the way. Let cool slightly and serve. I'm really happy to finally be able to serve mac and cheese again!
