Here you can see that, in a bit of both butter and olive oil, I began by adding some minced garlic and chopped onion, then adding uncooked vegetables one at a time; carrots, celery, and mushrooms, followed by the precooked veggies. When everything had cooked awhile I stirred in some flour and fresh herbs as well as dried dill weed. Next came a container of fresh crab meat. Then slowly stirring in some white wine, followed by some half and half, and skim milk.
Stir gently til everything is warm, then at the end of cooking time, stirring in a handful of rich cheddar cheese until melted. ~ A lovely way to introduce Summer to Autumn.
