  1. That is one crazy gravy recipe from Martha!

    Sometimes on Sundays, I miss the old Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding dinners that my uncle or my grandmother would make at their homes. Based on their English mother (rumor is the French call the English 'the roast beefs')

    Yorkshire pudding must be in some of these recipe sources, though we probably won't see it with Fowl. I do look forward to Thursday's Big Bird!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families, everyone! Yum!

    1. Debra, I too miss the Sunday Roast Beef, and Yorkshire Pudding, with Mashed potatoes, a wonderful sauce of the Au Jus, Red Wine, and Mushrooms. I will have to try the crazy gravy recipe from Martha, if you say it is that good.
