Spinach or Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce

This Cheese Sauce is one of the first recipes I received from a roommate back in the early 70’s. It is just so different, and good, but is so easy to make. Even if you aren’t a great gravy maker, this sauce is one that will make you proud. To make a colorful dish, you could also add Spinach, Carrots and Cauliflower or Zuchinni and have a medley of veggies with this sauce.
2 tables butter
2 tabels flour
1/4 teas each salt and pepper
1/4 teas dry mustard
1/8 teas cayanne pepper
1/2 teas garlic powder
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, cubed (4 oz)

In a heavy saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Blend in flour and seasonings. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in milk.*See below* Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Boil one minute. Add cheese and stir until melted and well blended. Set aside. Cook the veggies (which one you choose) until tender; drain. Pour cheese sauce over veggies. *I also, use 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup of the water that I have cooked the veggies in instead of the 1 cup milk. It gives more vitamins and I like the taste of the sauce using 1/2 and 1/2 instead of all milk.*
