Sorry for the hiatus.
Computer died...need I say more.
Ok, I've been watching waaaayyyy too many cooking shows.
A few weeks ago I noticed that I had actually saved the chicken necks from our meat kings.
So I fetched them from the freezer and with Farmhouse Rules in the background my creative cooking juices started flowing.
Or maybe my tightwad juices started flowing and I didn't want to waste chicken.
I've been on a gravy kick lately also, ever since a co-worker told me that you could freeze gravy! Who knew!? Obviously not me!
I make mashed taters and I make gravy and freeze the leftover gravy.
So I figured I could make gravy with the chicken necks.
I put them in a pan with wine, rosemary, thyme, (all three of these ingredients come from watching too many cooking shows), a bit of water, chicken spice, salt and pepper and Voila!
Here is my cooked chicken necks. They don't look too appetizing but Jamie and I ate them and they were delish. I'm telling you, don't waste anything.
I took the juices out and strained out the herbs and whisked in the water and cornstarch and it made the most delish gravy!
So smooth and creamy!
So I froze it!
Next time I make mashed potatoes I'll thaw it out and we'll have awesome gravy.
The moral of this story?
Even though you're driving your son crazy by watching cooking shows on a crappy Saturday afternoon, good things come out of it!
Have a Blessed Evening.
