St Julia forgive me

For a recent family event (my great-nephew turned 12—I am so old) I made Mac and Cheese using a recipe from Cooking Secrets for Men (linked here) The recipe called for a pound of butter. Now I like butter as much as the next guy but I really could not imagine using that much here. I used 1/4 of a pound (one stick which seemed like a lot to me) for a pound of pasta.

I know, Julia Child, as my friend Charlie says here, insists that there’s no such thing as too much butter. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. As it was there was a can of cheddar soup, a cup of sour cream, half & half, and buttermilk, respectively, as well as more than a pound of cheese.

It was a hit. The recipe says it serves 4. Forty more like.
