One of the things we made from our whole roasted chicken was gravy. I don’t usually eat gravy. It wasn’t something my mom ever made, so I just usually skip it. Anthony loves gravy though. I honestly didn’t even think of making it until he came home and asked if I had made gravy. So, we call his mom in the middle of her dinner to ask her how to do it and I honestly couldn’t believe how easy it was. Gravy always look super fancy, so I just assumed it would be hard to make. Not so much.
I have to give Anthony the credit on this one though. He did this by himself. I should have let him post the recipe on here, but he’d probably say embarrassing things about me. That isn’t happening.
Do you like my gravy boat?! It’s the matching set from the china we got when we got married. It’s the only piece of china that I have at my house. We left everything else at my in-laws, because we have no where to put it right now. One day I’ll have a fancy china cabinet and get to display it all. Although I don’t really understand the idea of a china cabinet. It’ll be empty and look kind of weird when you have guests over for dinner. Can someone explain that to me?
