You may have noticed by now that anytime you see a camper in a picture on this blog or in our Facebook album they have a camera in their hands or around their neck. Curious what the pictures they've been taking look like? So were we! We had another pressing question to answer today too - what to do with all the cheese from our visit to the dairy farm yesterday? So today we spent half the day reviewing, editing and critiquing photos and then headed to the kitchen to answer the second question.

ASA Camp Stove Top Mac 'n Cheese

Mac 'n Cheese

serves 12

1 pound of elbow macaroni
1 stick of butter
4 eggs
2 cups of whole milk
1 tsp. of salt
1 tsp. of dry mustard
1 tsp. of smoked paprika
3 cups of grated cheese (mixture of Mapledale Farm raw milk Farmhouse Colby and Farmhouse Cheddar cheeses and Cabot sharp cheddar)

Cook pasta according to package directions, reserve.
Melt butter and milk.
Whisk eggs and slowly add hot milk to temper the eggs - adding it slowly prevents curdling.
Add the eggs back in the pan with the milk, add the cheese and mix well until the sauce is thick.
Add sauce to the macaroni, sprinkle with more paprika if desired.

We served ours with a raw corn, summer squash, scallion salad (with veggies from Ellie's garden!) that was seasoned with lemon juice, salt, pepper and cumin along with a green salad.
