Mmmmmm.......................Gravy Bread!

Hmmmm, I am not sure where to start with this blog. You see, I - Móna Wise do NOT LIKE GRAVY BREAD. I realise that many of you out there are shocked by this statement (sorry Kurt) but I just do not get it.

The Chef, is an avid fan and actually has this in mind every time he makes gravy. Imagine, after you have finished eating a lovely dinner, slathering butter on a piece of bread and pouring gravy over the bread, then letting it soak into all the nooks and crannies before devouring it.

I watched in amazement last night as my brother - Kenneth (still slightly intoxicated from funeraling) made his gravy bread and I thought this was strange as the only place I had ever seen this happen before was at Kurt & Dia's house (in the US).

I even googled Gravy Bread last night to see exactly who started it all. Nothing! I cannot find out where this idea originated from but apparently it is a favourite on both sides of the pond!

Needless to say it was shamelessly washed down with some of the black stuff and whiskey chaser! Finger lickin good, he said!

Before I sign off for this evening, I should warn you the Chef spent sometime today talking about Rondo's stuffed cabbage rolls (oh, God remember that??) and peppermint bark chocolate fudge.
I will have the recipies posted as soon as he gets to it!
That is all the WiseWords I have for today,

I don't think I've ever even heard of gravy bread, but I'm with you on this one... doesn't look like something I'd love!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog.
