And they were delicious.So, for my girls (and grandkids), I am recreating (step-by-step) a very typical Sunday dinner of Pot Roast. As I reminisce, I can visualize the glasses and dishes she served on, the vinyl tablecloth (always floral and blue) and the sweet basket or bowl of plastic flowers.
Since you don’t have this little aluminum cup and lid that belonged to Grandmom to shake the cornstarch and water in, you can use a cup with about 6 Tbs of cornstarch and 1/4 cup of cold water. (You can also use flour to thicken but it won’t make shiny gravy like Grandmom made) Stir together well and whisk it into the gravy to thicken. Cook a few more minutes.
To complete this Authentic Meal you must serve applesauce (pour straight from jar and sprinkle with cinnamon), peas (the frozen kind) and Pepperage Farm dinner rolls (ignore that these are not Pepperage Farm Brand)
