I actually debated with myself about using corn starch, that is the method my mother has always done. I did cheat a bit last night, I used chicken broth to make my flour thickener mix.
It is only dinner, but I have this perfectionist problem I am dealing with
Tomorrow I'll be making some gravy to go with the pair of pies we didn't eat. My bride has decided on dinner for tonight, she wants to make a frittata with the left over veggie mix I had for the pies. While the pies were baking she kept dipping into the veggie mix in the fridge, roasted potatoes and carrots mixed with sautéed onion, celery and mushrooms. I must admit the veggies mix had a bigger taste than the ingredients would suggest. She came home with a small almond butter cake from a local bakery - WOW! Found the next dessert to try making.
