Apple n Swiss Mac & Cheese

Apple & Swiss Mac & Cheese

Nothing is quite as satisfying as carbs or warm & gooey cheese on a brisk, cool day. I had a slice of swiss cheese & Adam had an apple last Sunday, we were snacking & hungry for lunch. We started talking about apples & cheese – the rest is history. We went to the grocery store immediately to get the ingredients for the mac & cheese that suddenly was on our minds.
