Cheese Sauce for Broccoli and Cauliflower
This is the cheese sauce I learned to make in Home Ec. class years ago. Once you learn how to make the white sauce, you can add many things to it for home cooking. Some things I've learned over the years: 1. you need to cook the flour and butter for a bit so the sauce doesn't have a raw flour taste 2. you have to keep the heat very low, or turn it off, when you add the shredded cheese or it will clump up and separate; once the cheese has been added, do not use high heat need to shred your cheese from a block of cheese, anything that is pre-shredded has added flour to keep the shredded cheese separate. It will make your cheese sauce gritty. I add different things to the basic sauce to give it different flavors - garlic when melting the butter, or Worcestershire sauce for more flavor, sometimes different mustards. This is good on any vegetable or potato. By changing the type of cheese, you get many different sauces. Great recipe! Thanks Samantha for sharing.

Marinated Cucumber, Onion, and Tomato Salad
Very good - wonderful with the summer vegetables. It's better if you let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours before you eat it.

Texas Sheet Cake V
I liked the cake but the pan size is off a little. I measured and used my Wilton 10.25 x 15.25" pan. It came up over the top of the pan which is fine, but the frosting is put on a warm cake so there is no place for it to go but drip down the sides. I will use a slightly larger sheet cake pan next time. Also, I didn't add all the confectioner sugar to the frosting. I probably used about 3 cups and it was then spreading consistency so I didn't want to add more and make it too stiff. It spread easily and tasted good.
