Listen in, listen Ian!
Bisto chicken gravy granuls
Oh, and I'm going to pimp this:
Get your own valentinr
again since everyone's doing it now. And obviously, the reason I only got three clicks so far is that I posted it near midnight about 2 weeks ago, rather than being able to post it at work when everyone's reading. Yes. That's it.
This is the only LJ poll I've ever filled in that made me nearly vomit! Mashed potato is the greatest evil in the entire universe. I heave as I write about it.
I can't believe I said gravy granules are good, but I do like how I can throw them into stew for Andrew; it's easy and he's happy. I have no interest in eating gravy so this is the extent of my contact with them.
Gravy granules are good, but gravy made _only_ from granules is not so good. Adding some granules to gravy that's otherwise mostly meat juices is a Good Thing.
Lumpy mash and smooth mash are both good for different reasons and I can't say which I prefer.
hmmm, but if yr having sossidges then there's not rly anything to make gravy from (and so the only time i use granules).
being thoroughly old school i use COMPTONS GRAVY SALT
to make my meat juice gravy. despite the sell by date being sometime in 2005 it's one of those things, like lard, that never goes off...
Somehow, depite all talk of mashed potatos, I hadn't thought of sausages. I don't tend to eat them that much and when I do, gravy wouldn't be appropriate. (sausage sandwichs,
I don't know what Comptons gravy salt is but I plan to investigate further. Thanks for the tip. If I can make gravy based on meat juice and not use granules at all then yay.
I'm saying all this like I actually do any cooking. I probably haven't made gravy so far this year.
I worship and adore every single one of the multifarious forms of the Noble Potato with the sole exception of mash. I was put off it at school by the cold, lumpen mash of Evil.
Occasionally other people make mash for me and to show polite, I eat it, and am usually pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable an experience it turns out to be, but I never make mash for myself. Too many memories, maan..
I am tolerant of lumps but obviously they should be avoided.
Granules are a boon to the culinarily inadequate such as myself, but beef granules or veg granules >>> chicken granules.
