Week 36 – Turkey Gravy

Better late than never, right?  Right.  Works too crazy to handle right now, 12 more days!!

This recipe is an old favorite from my childhood.  I know it’s called “Turkey Gravy,” but there’s actually no turkey in it, just chicken.  Until this week I had never made it myself, but it’s easy and delicious, and makes for a perfect week night meal.  Matt made it last Monday and then I made it again this past Wednesday when I was working from home.  Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!
