vegetables in white sauce.

Ingredients: Carrots, potatoes, beans. Any vegetable you prefer. Salt, pepper, garlic. Milk, butter, flour.

Chop carrots, potatoes, beans. Boil in salted water. I add some red pepper flakes and garlic for flavor. Add peas and corn if you have any.

Drain once tender.

In a pan, melt one spoon of butter. Fry one spoon of flour in it. Add one cup of milk.

[This pan clearly wasn't dishwasher-safe.]

There, now you're all privy to my mother's awesome not-so-secret 1:1:1 white-sauce recipe. Add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes for taste.

Add the boiled vegetables and mix well. Let the sauce thicken.

Mix in one large spoon of cream cheese to mellow the dish out. Serve as a delicious side to roast chicken.


  1. I'm making this tonight, serving it with crumb fried chicken and punch. Mmmmm. Thankyou doubly.

  2. You're very welcome! Hope your dinner goes well.

  3. I think I fucked it up a little with the sauce. And I know what you'll say, it's a ridiculously easy sauce to make, but what to say, I am me, and I fuck up cooking sometimes. =(

  4. Meh, it looks easy but it took me several tries to get the consistency of the sauce right. You have to keep stirring as it thickens.
