I still only have one saucepan, but I broke down and bought a mixing bowl so I could make this cute little dessert I saw in an old book I have, which is Betty Crocker Dinner for Two. I updated the recipe a bit, so it would feed more than two people, as well as added eggs, and omitted the oil and replaced it with butter. It came out awesome! Jason and I had Paul over for dinner, and I made an easy dinner. Beef and Waffles with homemade gravy. All you do is cook the beef, I do a slow cook and just boil it until it's almost done, then set it aside. Prepare the gravy, and then before the gravy boils and thickens, I add the beef, let it boil, turn it to low, and cover it until we're ready to dig in.
I have no more photos to share, since I was in such a hurry to get everything done before the boys came home so all you get is that one, plus the recipes. That just means you get to get off your butt and into the kitchen to make these tasty treats sooner! So do it :)
Easy Homemade Gravy
1/4 C butter
1/4 C flour
4 C low sodium vegetable broth
Salt, Pepper, Seasonings to taste
Melt the butter in a saucepan, add in flour and stir until no lumps. Cook for 10 minutes until mixture starts to change color. Turn heat to low, slowly add broth stirring after each addition. Once all broth is added, turn back up to medium high heat and cook until gravy boils and thickens. You can use broth of choice to make whatever kind of gravy you need, chicken, turkey, etc.
