Century Corporation is thankful for our loyal residents at Burnam Woods, Chatham Gardens and Old Orchard Apartments. We wanted to show our thanks by giving you some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes and traditions. We enjoy watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with our families, picking names for our Secret Santa gifts and indulging ourselves with our favorite Thanksgiving foods. Here are some of our favorites:
Sweet Sweet Potatoes

Baked Macaroni and Cheese:
1 package macaroni
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 cup cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup breadcrumbs buttered
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook macaroni, drain, then set aside. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add flour, salt, & pepper, then whisk until blended well. Gradually add milk and cream while continuously stirring. Bring mixture to a boil; continue to boil for two minutes. Reduce heat, and cook for ten minutes while stirring. Add shredded cheese and simmer for 5 minutes, or until cheese melts. Remove from flame, and add macaroni to saucepan. Stir until the cheese coats the macaroni. Shift macaroni to a buttered baking dish, and layer the top of the macaroni with bread crumbs. Bake twenty minutes until golden brown.
