January 9th-Chili Cheese Sauce

Today, for the first time, I witnessed a garbage truck being pulled through the frozen streets via tow truck.  On a seemingly unrelated note, I also noticed a bag of shredded cheese with the first evidence of mold appearing around the fringes.  I believe there to be a metaphor in there somewhere, though a suspect it too esoteric for general consumption.   The chili cheese sauce I hastily prepared to salvage the remaining uninoculated cheese was, by contrast, almost too user-friendly.  See the tasting notes below.

2 T butter

2 T flour

1 T chili powder

½ t Sriracha sauce

Dash of black pepper

1 ½ C of milk

1 ½ C of shredded cheese

Melt butter in a sauce pan.

Add flour, chili powder, pepper, and Sriracha sauce.  Mix

Add milk and mix well.

Allow sauce to heat slowly in the pan, stirring frequently.

When sauce has thickened, stir in (unmoldy) cheese and heat until the cheese melts.



From the ITP I heard whisperings that the sauce was faintly reminiscent of buttery pizza.   However, the stronger message conveyed was that the sauce was bland, practically “nursing home food”- appropriately served beside creamed cabbage and boiled potatoes.  Bah!  I say if you are living out your later years shacked up at the Twilight Acres Rest Home recalling the quiet, yet confident Coolidge presidency, go ahead, slip out your dentures and enjoy this sauce.  If you are of the ilk that enjoys a bit more pizazz, throw some hot pepper rings in there and serve over spicy chips.
