I subscribe to Cuisine at Home and there was a recipe that interested my boyfriend - Mac n Cheese soup- so we decided to cook together.
We started by sauteing celery and onion in butter, then adding some flour, which will serve as the thickener. We added white wine, let it cook down to "au sec" or almost gone, then added chicken stock, dry mustard, nutmeg and cayenne. Then we added the milk and 4 cups cheddar a little at a time until incorporated.
Finally, we added boiled macaroni noodles with some lemon juice and garnished with chopped fresh chives and blue cheese crumbles. Pretty easy and we both agreed- delicious! :)
