My gravy worked!!! I cheated...
I was making fried chicken and wanted gravy for my mashed tators. I wanted to find a new way to add more flavor, and I found it.
I took some fat from the chicken frying pan (peanut oil and some bacon grease wtih good pieces of fried coating) and put it in a small pan. I added a package of turkey gravy mix, I think it it was McCormic. After that got nice and hot I added a cup of water and let it come to a boil for a minute.
It was wonderful............
