Creamy Macaroni and Cheese from Scratch, Millie's

Nothing says good home cooking like homemade macaroni and cheese ! I start with a simple beshamel sauce (fancy for cream sauce) and add velveeta and cheddar. This is a family favorite recipe. My nephew says it's the best mac and cheese he's ever had ! Sometimes I make extra cheese sauce that I use for broccoli and cheese or broccoli and rice casserole for other meals later in the week.
