  1. I had some trouble with this recipe so I had to adjust some portions. I used all of the ingredients listed with the except of the soy milk, which I replaced with evaporated milk. I followed the directions to the point of making the sauce. I used 1/4 cup of butter for the 1/4 cup flour and added the stock and evaporated milk and noticed this to be very thick so added extra stock then the thyme. Then I thought where is the cheese and noted there was no cheese mentioned so I cubed about 4 oz of velveta cheese, added it to the mixture until melted then poured this over the veggie mixture and sprinkled with 1/4 cup bread crumbs which was plenty for this dish. Then I drizzled the top with 2 tablespoons of melted butter and placed it in the oven for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until the top was nicely browned. The combination was really quite good, but the recipe by itself is very poorly written, IMHO.


I’m a Libra, I’m also an INFP (Jung - Myers-Briggs typology). The INFP explains me better then my star sign. I’m a sloppy perfectionist. I crave solitude. I’m constantly in need of an escape. I’m a huge music fan with the smallest music collection. I’m quietly spoken with wild ideas and a hyperactivity problem I keep in check by exercise. I’m an artist, a painter, a photographer, and a writer. I like to use a new word every time I discover it. I love to read and I am currently catching up on the classics (if you have a book that I have to read, tell me). I'm a Martial Artist with a green belt in free style Kung Fu (Akido, Bushido, Kali and Karate also). I'm also about to do the intermediate course in pole dancing.

I am silly/serious, often aimless, sometimes arrogant, always contradictory; which means it takes people a long time to really know me. I can be blunt to the point of rude, overly critically, in the need to always be right with a fundamental difficulty of understanding humans. I'm hyper active most of the time. I NEED to learn to accept existence.
