scalloped potatoes

I haven't posted a recipe in a while and since I love potatoes, I thought I would share my new favorite potato recipe. I got this from my mother-in-law. The first thing you do is boil 6 potatoes in their skins. I made baked potatoes and just cooked a few extra. I then put them in the fridge to cool and used them the next day. Once your potatoes are cool, peel them and slice them into a casserole dish. For the sauce, melt 4 Tbs. butter over low heat in a saucepan. Add 4 Tbs. flour; blend together. Add 2 cups of milk. Cook until thick and smooth, stirring constantly. Add about 3/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. Cook for a couple of minuets, stirring, after coming to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1/2 tsp dried parsley. Pour the sauce over the sliced potatoes in the casserole dish; mix together. Cover with a lid and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven- top with some grated cheddar cheese and sprinkle some paprika around. Return to oven and bake until the cheese melts. About five minutes. Walla, a delicious dinner if served with a green salad and some fruit.
