Helen Henry, an elderly neighbor and master quilter, doesn’t cook much anymore. Now that Cissy and her family live with her, Helen eats well without turning on the stove. But Helen’s macaroni and cheese is well known at church potlucks, and when Kendra moves into the cabin Helen brings a pan for her to enjoy.
There’s some speculation that macaroni and cheese was first created by Virginia’s own Thomas Jefferson, who served it in the White House in 1802. Was there anything this Virginian couldn’t do?
