Yes, of course, you add cold milk to the roux. Knorr had a decent hollandaise...
PS: All I have at home is a pair of jeans that could pass for 70's style pants, numerous necklaces of the era.
No need to scald the milk.
Everyone, I need to dress up 70's style for tomorrow (photo shoot in the late afternoon). I plan to go to a couple of vintage stores this afternoon. What should I be looking for? I have a few ideas, but am interested in something a little more original than the norm, or the detail that will make it all work. Reminder: I'm female and slender, hair shoulder-length. Thanks?

I think that kids have to be tought to behave in the adult world, and the way to do that is to allow them to visit the adult world. we have taken my kids...
Can't remember, something slowly sautéed in butter and mouilléed in lemon juice and stuff. I'd better straighten out for the Italian carnevale on Saturday. The Italian crowd is unforgiving.
I happily removed annoying people from my facebook page today (they say those being ditched don't get notified, I wish they did), what a relief.
Naptown? "The" wife? "The" girlfriend? Like most American cities don't look like the other and any other and boring to death? Let's see, where am I going with this? Boys and girls? Boys vs girls? No, wait, men vs girls. That's more like it.

Truly the stuff that builds nations. Here are the French lyrics for reference: Gens du pays, c'est votre tour De vous laisser parler d'amour
Bucatini with pesto (homemade this summer, basil from the garden). I wish I could taste kæstur hákarl, though, 'tis the season.
