Birthday’s are a big deal in our house. We make a huge deal about the kiddos birthdays. With a big family the kids tend to be treated like a herd- so Birthday’s are a great opportunity to give everyone some extra special attention. I always ask the birthday boy or girl what they want for their special meal and I am always amazed at how specific they are. Three year olds have strong opinions about food and what they want to eat.  Gogo loves french onion dip- nothing fancy here sour cream with onion soup mix and for the Birthday Cake I went with a very ornate cake from the Bakery at our local Supermarket.

Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to package- make sure that it is just before al dente - I usually shave 2 mins the cooking time. The pasta will cook more in the sauce and you want to to keep some of it's integrity. Drain and rinse to stop the cooking. In the same pot add the butter and flour and cook over medium heat for 1 minute. Slowly add your milk and cook for about 5 mins or until it begins to thicken. Do not let the milk boil. Add the cheese, mustard & nutmeg. When the cheese is almost melted turn off the heat and add the cooked pasta. Mix well and pour into a baking dish. Spread Bread crumbs evenly over top and dollop with butter. Place under broiler until the top is golden brown about five mins.
