Why I Love This Recipe

My family has been making this since I can remember. Washing your hands with water (H2O) before the recipe begins is using a pure substance. Chemistry info: In addition to the Things below, when you mix the macaroni and cheese together, and when you put the breadcrumbs on top, it is a heterogeneous mixture. Cutting and melting the cheese are both physical changes. The browning of the macaroni and the the smell when it’s done are both signs that a chemical change had occurred.
