mac & cheese

(makes 2-3 portions)


200 g macaroni

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp flour

make the base: melt butter, add flour and mix vigorously until smooth

add the egg yolk and mustard, mix in

add the cheese and mix until melted and the sauce is smooth

season to taste


green salad

handful of watercress

handful of rocket

rice vinegar
