JP, dark gravy, (Muscovy duck gravy to be exact, hee, hee), mashed potatoes, turnips mashed with carrot, steamed cabbage with white sauce, peas with that white sauce, a green salad, the dressing Miracle Whip, gravy on the Miracle Whip salad (yes, gravey on salad made with Miracle whip is a treat within itself, always ensure there is a salad with that dressing when we have dark gravy, like roast beef dinner, sounds horrible, but it is a wonderful thing to eat), oh so yummy.
The white sauce, in my mind's eye, is nothing like the white gravy that you speak about, different ingredients, I don't like white gravy personally, it is not esthetically pleasing to myself. OK, I am now drooling for dinner again and it is 7:30 A.M. Bad.
Have that most beautiful and wonderful day, we have a great life to live, love and share. Cindi
