I know my way around a kitchen. I do not claim to be chef-worthy but I can cook edible food.
Last week we were having “Breakfast for dinner.” A family favorite.
Biscuits and Gravy. Yum.
Brown the sausage -√
Pull from the pantry: Flour, salt and pepper – √
Pull from the refrigerator: milk – √
Sprinkle the browned sausage with some flour (no measuring necessary)
Smoosh it around until the flour is combined with the meat. Looking good.
Add the milk, salt and pepper
Let the gravy cook for a couple of minutes so the gravy thickens with the milk and flour mixture.
Ok…..sometimes it takes a little more flour. We like thick gravy.
I add more flour. And then more flour. And more. And more.
Whatever…….my gravy is just not going to be thick this time.
Cook the biscuits.
Call the family to the table.
“Wow this gravy is good” “What did you do to make it taste sweet?”
I walk to the pantry and look at the container I had been dipping flour from….
the girl whose husband decided to share her gravy story at church. whatever.
