Easy, tasty, customizable, you can do ahead of time...I could go on... If you want to mix it up, substitute a little sweet potato for some of the carrots. It is very tasty! Instead of 1/2 cup butter, you can use 2 tablespoons butter and 3 tablespoons vegetable or seed oil. Instead of 2 cups milk, you can use 1 cup milk and 1 cup chicken stock.
