Back from Arkansas

A lovely mini-vacation we had...much feasting, resting, walking and stargazing in the Ouachitas.

This was part of the food.

DO you know how to make gravy for 50? I do, now...:-)

Looks lovely and peaceful!!

Regarding the gravy, you're hired!! I can't make gravy for two, let alone 50. :-)

Glad you are back safe and sound, and that you had a wonderful time.

Thanks a lot, it really was great; as always, pictures cannot quite tell the story. And my gravy was gone by the end of the day,so I guess I did something right...:-) Hope you had a good holiday too!

Oh gosh, yes, especially if you make it totally from scratch, starting with bacony turkey fat and flour for roux...mmm...

Homemade gravy from scratch, yes. The stuff in the packet is an abomination. :-)

Here in Kansas, gravy is never made with roux, unless making a cream gravy. Meat gravies are always thickened with a flour/water slurry instead.

That said, I personally kind of like roux based gravies myself, as I find that its much easier to control the amount of flour and the overall consistency while avoiding lumps and 'the flour taste'

Nice (the pictures, not the gravy. Well, come to think of it, I'm sure the gravy was nice too).
