Macaroni & Cheese

I tried this out, mainly for the kids. Although John and I thought it was the best recipe for homemade mac and cheese, the kids did not like it, so it will not be a regular at our house. I am saving the recipe though b/c if I were to make the homemade version this would be it. My kids are just not going to eat any except the blue box...picky little things!
John's Rating: 7-8 Recipe from: Favorite Family Recipes

1 pkg elbow macaroni
1/2 c. butter
1/3 BIG block Velveeta, cut into little cubes
1 1/2 - 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. milk (or to taste)
salt & pepper to taste

Cook macaroni according to package directions (al dente) in salted water.Drain pasta. Melt butter in pan, then return to pot with melted butter on low heat. Add cheeses and milk. Keep stirring until cheese is melted. If it is too thick, add more milk.. if it's too thin, add more cheese. You want it to be the consistency of the Blue Box stuff. Add salt and pepper. Stir well and serve immediately.
