My son has been unwell and today is much better, demanding macaroni cheese. Now how do you make your macaroni cheese? Mine has to have some crispy smoked bacon stirred through it, and it has to be topped with a thin layer of wholemeal seasoned breadcrumbs and parmesan for a crispy top. No tomatoes, ever. I am however , quite partial to that Scottish canteen delicacy of horrifically overcooked macaroni, in a bland cheese sauce, topped with plasticky orange cheese, always but always served with chips! The macaroni can usually be smeared onto the chips such is the consistency. Don't ask me why I like it- it isn't remotely cheesy and the macaroni is indistinguishable. It certainly isn't the way my mum used to make it.
