Mac & Cheese in the Crock Pot

I love, love LOVE Macaroni & Cheese. No seriously, I really, really love Macaroni & Cheese. I have always loved it since I was a little girl. In fact, until two years ago, I've had homemade Baked Macaroni & Cheese every year for my birthday since I was about 7 probably. I can eat Macaroni & Cheese from the blue box, from the yellow box, at a restaurant, at home (okay, I am starting to sound like a Dr. Seuss story. Ha!) or anywhere. I really love the stuff. It is my FAVORITE!!!!! OMG! fab-u-lous. If it is on the menu at a restaurant then guaranteed I am trying it!

About three years ago my mom started making this Macaroni & Cheese for picnics and it is to die for! And the best part is that is made in a crock pot! How cool is that? You add everything together and that's it! Presto, a couple of hours later and it's done!

Here's what's in it:

You first cook 7 ounces of macaroni on the stove and then add to a crock pot.

Then you take 1 cup of sour cream,

and then 2 cups of small curd cottage cheese,

and 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese.

Mix that all together with 3/4 tsp. of salt, 1/4 tsp. of garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. of pepper and then let it cook. That's it! OMG!!! It is so stinkin' good. It is creamy and gooey and cheesy. Mmmmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. If your family and kids love Macaroni & Cheese then you've got to make this one because they will LOVE it!
