Is there something wrong with gravy that I don't know about?

I'm trying to lose my last 10 pounds and if I make gravy I will eat a cup of it AND lick my plate!

I'm going to make big Thai spring roll-inspired salads with leftover wine-butt chicken, rice noodles, lettuce, shredded carrots and cucumber, and sesame-ginger dressing. Seems like I should have something else with that ... maybe I'll get DH to stop at the store and get some frozen egg rolls.

If it is stormy out, I will make fish N chips, fries and tossed salad.
If not - burgers on the grill, fries and the salad .

The new free fridge arrived today (per the energy saving program here). It's supposed to have been the same size as my old fridge 18.2 cu. Guess what. All my food does not fit into the freezer. So I have chicken & brats defrosting. I may turn it into paella or a dish I saw advertised called chicken skilletini - pasta/sausage/chicken. Gonna have to wing it.

Going to a Silent Dinner at the mall tonight so I will partake of the food court offerings. For those not familiar, a Silent Dinner is a time for the Deaf community to get together for socializing. I must attend a required number of these for my degree in sign language interpretation.

Left over pork chops for the main dish and Bilby's Creamed sprouts and mushrooms for the veg. The last of the apple pie for dessert. That will finish up all this week's leftovers, so now it is time to start planning next week's menu.

DH went went grocery shopping today, and brought home some eye of round steaks for chicken fried steaks. He has one of those new meat tenderizers that stabs the meat with a bunch of little blades, and wants to try it out.
Of course, that means mashed potatoes and gravy, and probably green beans or corn.
