Creamy Herbed Vegetables

We always pass this dish to Dad first, since he likes the creamy herbed combination so much. He rates it tops among all the trimmings served for the turkey dinner when our gang of more than 20 gathers to celebrate. —Keri Scofield Lawson, Fullerton, California

    Excellent and easy! Creamed vegetables are so very satisfying. I like to use fresh herbs as much as possible, so I used fresh thyme (1 tablespoon) and parsley. Also I substituted heavy cream for the half & half - I like it rich! I have served this for Thanksgiving dinner for the 35 relatives I have every year, and everyone gives it thumbs up!

    I had forgotten about this wonderful recipe! What is so great is that you can alter the herbs to suit your own tastes. I have used ginger, tarragon and/or dill weed depending upon what I was serving it with.
