Step 1

Cut up enough veggies to fill a pot. Fill up pot with enough water to cover veggies. Boil until tender.

Step 2

While veggies are cooking, microwave bacon. Crumble it up when it cools off. Set aside.

Step 3

When veggies are done, drain about half the water. Then in the frying pan, melt 1/4-1/8 cup butter. Add flour to it and stir to paste with whisk. Add 2 cups milk and whisk. Adjust with flour and milk until consistency is just right. Pour into main pot with veggies. If you like the consistency, it's good. Too thin: repeat the flour and butter step.

Step 4

Add bacon. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
