Whenever I have the chance to visit my Alabama hometown, mom always insists on making homemade tomato gravy (see recipe below!) and biscuits. If you’ve never had this particular variation of smothering sauce, you’ve missed out on a sopping-good treat!
Gravy is that delicious dish that’s never the entree, but, instead, an added bonus. In my job as a psychic medium, I’ve accumulated a lot of gravy and it has nothing to do with a dining table.
When my practice first started, I knew my services would find a target audience: people who were already onboard with the world of divine spirituality and psychic work. All others who sought me out, I assumed, would be “gravy,” or, the added bonus.
Initially, that’s how my business operated. For the first few years, most of my clients, having had prior sessions with other psychics, knew much of the lingo, like spiritual guides, meditation, out-of-body experience, past-life regression, etc. Only a small percentage were newcomers, those who knew little, but were curious and wanted to learn more.
There has since been a shift; my practice is now nearly 50/50: half are seasoned spiritualists and half are first-timers (who are often referred to me by my repeat clients). It just goes to show that more and more people are realizing that an intuitive consultation can provide insights to help get the most out of life.
I’m grateful for gravy in more ways than one!
Love and light,
MY MOTHER’S HOMEMADE TOMATO GRAVY
5 TABLESPOONS COOKING OIL
1 CAN PETITE DICED TOMATOES
2 TABLESPOONS SELF RISING FLOUR
1 CAN WATER (PLUS MORE IF NEEDED)
SALT & PEPPER TO TASTE
IN A LARGE FRYING PAN BROWN THE FLOUR, SALT AND PEPPER IN THE OIL UNTIL A RICH GOLDEN BROWN. SLOWLY ADD THE CAN OF TOMATOES AND STIR…MIXTURE WILL BE THICK. IMMEDIATELY ADD THE CAN OF WATER TO THIN OUT TOMATO MIXTURE AND STIR. MORE WATER CAN BE ADDED IF NECESSARY…JUST USE YOUR OWN JUDGEMENT AS TO HOW THICK YOU WANT IT. WHEN IT IS THE CONSISTENCY YOU WANT, TURN ON THE LOWEST HEAT AND LET SIMMER FOR A FEW MINUTES, STIRRING OCCASIONALLY.
