I LOVE Gravy!
First, did you notice anything different? Look up at the top...I have my own URL! Funny thing is we have owned that since I started blogging and just now (thanks to Joe) we got the name transfered to me! It's not really a big deal, but I like it!

Ok, no, I'm so not ashamed of the gravy statement. I will admit I'm not much of a sauce person, but there are some sauces that are the main event for me. Gravy is that event!

I made Salisbury Steak for the boys and so...

I made mushroom gravy for me!

Truth be told, I only made the steak for them, so I would have an excuse to make the gravy for me! I had soaked some bulgar wheat on Saturday. I'm embarrassed to say it's been sitting in my fridge since Jessica hosted a BSI food challenge with it last year. That was forever ago...

So, I thought a nice mushroom gravy would be perfect over it, oh, and it was! This was a major comfort meal for me. I want to have it over quinoa next time. It's kind of funny, the illustrator and I used to eat rice with gravy all the time when we first started dating (cheap eats people). I guess it holds a lot of memories for me now.

Turns out the boys didn't mind my craving since they had a big plate of comfort food too.

Mushroom Gravy
(makes enough for two...but I ate the whole thing myself)

8 oz portabella mushrooms (chopped)
1 cup Not Beef Broth
1 TBSP Gluten Free All Purpose Four (I used Bob's)

Sautee the mushrooms (I actually did this in a little water to help them along, but you can use dairy free butter or olive oil) until cooked. In a measuring cup, add the flour to the broth and mix well until the flour is completely dissolved. Gradually add the broth mixture to the mushrooms and stir well. Bring to a simmer on medium high heat stirring occasionally until thickened.

Oatmeal is my all time favorite comfort food. What is yours?
