When I was growing up my mother and father occasionally entertained and for a special dinner my mom would make timbales. Timbale irons of different shapes were dipped into batter and then deep fried. These formed shells into which went creamed chicken and creamed peas. So delicious.

Hurray for you. Pork raised these days has so little fat, it’s tough to make an old-fashioned flavorful pork gravy.

Speaking of gravy, my Polish grandmother made the BEST. Her secret ingredient is what she called “burned sugar.” She carmelized sugar until very dark, added a bit of water after it cooled, and kept it on the pantry shelf. Use sparingly, little by little until you get the taste and color your want. Homemade Gravy Master!

Here is something that we eat occasionally that tastes very nice. (Notice I didn't say yummy? GPSMA?) Sautee a pound of hamburger and half a minced onion until done, no red, add a heaping tablespoon of flour and brown, then add about a half a cup of milk (maybe more) and salt and lots of pepper. Serve over toast or biscuits with a vegetable and a salad. Comfort food. Anybody else like it?
Love that. My mother had to feed seven kids on a small budget. She usually served it over mashed potatoes or broad egg noodles. She called it goulash.

Braised meat of any sort is a treat. Pork chops, seasoned long and slow with cream gravy. It does not get better. Both Grandmas also made the best croquettes from any piece of roast that was left over topped with some version of a sauce. What the hell folks, if you moved to The Villages, time is short and so are the pleasures infrequent.

Dad was Southern. Mom was German. Dad won most things at home but the gravy on everything never stood a chance around Mom. So, rarely had sauces or gravies on meats except on turkey and pot roast. Never missed it. Still don’t.

I do remember an argument they had about white gravy on fried chicken. Mom said no. If he wanted sauces on his meat, he should have married a French woman. Never heard Dad say a thing about gravy again.

Yes definitely. All in moderation.

LOL. Great story. You reminded me of one: "I met an acquaintance a couple of months after my father's wake. She said, "Oh your mom is so funny." "How so?", I asked.

She replied: "While talking to your mom I said, "I'm so sorry, I know how much you are going to miss John."

And without missing a beat mom replied: "Yeah, he made such good gravy."

(True story)
