Conover, Did You Really Steal This From Your Mother?
Yes, yes I did.
My mother used to make this way for with the dijon mustard and diced apples, so I got the idea from her. I’ve stolen her recipes before.
There are so many different ways you can serve this . I tend to like versatile dishes.
You probably haven’t gotten past the part where I admitted to stealing my Mom’s recipes. Well, there’s a story that goes with that. My mother (Melba) would be cooking something that I really liked, so I’d ask her how to make it.
Why Would You Do Such A Terrible Thing?
One I asked her when I was a teenager (that was back in the Stone Age), how to make the white gravy she was making.
I don’t remember the dish she was preparing back then. Her parents were farmers. She was a southern gal that knew her way around the kitchen. But, like her mother, she didn’t go by measurements.
It was a dash of this and a pinch of that. She said, “Conover, you just make it!”
She seemed frustrated as if I should have been born with the knowledge of how to prepare the white gravy. So, I watched her until I could figure it out, then I stole her recipes. Just like that.
Oh, yes, I did. But I share them with you guys, so does that redeem me? No? Well, fine!
This isn’t your mother’s . Oh, wait. It is my mother’s .
