Also, I spotted this bottle of Perrier for Paul & Joe at the Le Lion. What a cool collecter's item for fashion lovers. There's also some cans, but we don't have them. My co-worker is obsessed with those collector's editon Mountain Dew Bottles. I'll be on the look out for the cans...


I Made Gravy!!!

My mother starting teaching me how to cook when I was about 13. She said to me, "Ain't no man going to marry you if you can't cook." I'm still not married but I can cook thanks to my momma. She taught me the puriest of Southern cooking, biscuits from scratch, boiling rice, cleaning collards, frying chicken and making gravy. I didn't know gravy even came in a packet til I was in! Saturday, I made me and the kids chicken, rice and gravy and cabbage. And made that gravy, smooth and creamy, from the chicken pan right for the first time. I've messed a couple of times in the past. So getting right finally was so fabulous!!
Now... don't ask for a recipe because I kinda don't remember the measurements of everything with the gravy...:)
