Mac & Cheese in the Crock Pot Marksville Style

With having Fibromyalgia I was looking for a recipe that would make my life a little bit more easy , not having to spend so much time in the kitchen on my feet and moving around. Being able to provide my family with a nice meal is something I want to do, but something that doesn't get done as often because I am just in too much pain to stand there to get it all done.
I have been looking for a great Crock Pot Mac & Cheese for quite some time, and I think I came up with our own. Most other recipes left my macaroni like mush but I decided to try one more time so I took a little from here, a little from there and finally settled on the below recipe.
Mac & Cheese in the Crock Pot Marksville Style
1 lb of  elbow macaroni uncooked
8 oz of shredded cheddar cheese
1 8oz block of cream cheese cut into cubes
4 cups of milk 
First spray your crock pot with non stick spray 
Add in uncooked macaroni, milk, chunks of cream cheese, then shredded cheddar cheese, give a quick stir if you like but we didn't stir ours until ready to serve and it came out well. 
I did this on low for 4 hours in my 5 quart  crock pot. We didn't add any salt and pepper but if you like you can.
Our family likes the little crispy edges which this does for us. I will update with a picture the next time I make it. It was gobbled up that fast which means it is a keeper.
