Good Gravy!!

Why and how did that ever become an exclamation?


Last Sunday for dinner after church I put a smallish pork roast in the slow cooker and seasoned it with onion soup mix out of a little yellow pouch; you know, just sprinkled it over the meat and veggies. Then later that evening I used more of that same package of the onion soup mix with sour cream to make some dip.

The pork roast was good, but lacking in some way. So was the dip.

It wasn't until Tuesday that I actually LOOKED at the envelope of left-over onion soup mix and saw that it WASN'T onion soup mix. It was a gravy mix. They both come in the same color package.


I didn't tell hubby. What you don't know, you can't laugh about to other members of the family.

Never mind. "As long as it got eaten!" is my mother's favourite saying for situations like that.

I am sure we all have these little mishaps in the kitchen, I grabbed the wrong yellow box and used powdered sugar once instead of corn starch to thicken gravy! Needless to say, we didn't eat the gravy.
