Well, here is another version and completely fits the bill for comfort food in my book, along with keeping it mostly local.
The milk and butter that went into the roux are local. The flour is from Texas, but over 100 miles away. The onions are from my garden.
I added garlic from our garden. I love the addition flavor it adds to the white sauce.
Although I am out of potatoes, I just found out my neighbor still has loads of them to use up and has offered some to me! That puts a smile on my face. When we dug his garlic and onions this spring, his harvest was very small so I will offer him some of our garlic and onions when he needs them.
Do you share or exchange produce or things with your neighbors and friends?
