A favourite recipe from my friend Kelly that she makes every year. She finally gave it to me.

- 3/4 c. all purpose flour
- 1/2 c. butter
- 2 1/2 c. milk
- 2 c. grated cheddar cheese
- 2 3/4 lbs. seafood (lobster, crab, shrimp, scallops, tuna or other
Saute onion and celery in 1/4 c. butter until tender; stir in salt and pepper
Melt 1/2 c. butter in medium saucepan; add flour; slowly add milk, stir in cheese, cook and stir until cheese is melted; remove from heat.
Combine celery mixture with seafoods, turn into a large casserole; pour sauce over top.
Bake at 350 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly and brown.
