a month or two ago I signed up to host a handful of interns for supper. Who knew the schedule this week would be unforgiving. We couldn’t let them down though and served up sweet raspberry limeade, lemony wedge salads, mushroom cheddar burgers and cheese fries with a side of conversation. I am particularly pleased with our presentation – baskets and stripy liners.
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook for several minutes to get rid of the floury taste. Whisk in milk, a half cup at a time. Whisk in cayenne. Whisk in sharp cheddar and serve over oven baked fries.
