Creamy Mac and Cheese (Countdown to Thanksgiving)

My family usually prefers the blue box for macaroni and cheese so it’s hard to find a homemade macaroni and cheese that they would love.  This is one macaroni and cheese recipe that they enjoyed eating.

This recipe makes a LOT of macaroni and cheese.  I made this dish on a Saturday night.  We ate it as a side dish for three different meals.

I’m planning to make this for a Thanksgiving side.  My plan is to make it on Wednesday and then put it in a pan.  Then I will refrigerate it overnight.  On Thanksgiving, I will pull the pan out of the fridge and then into the oven to warm up.  I hope that makes sense.
