It is a sad but true fact that we discovered that we missed something as humble as the gravy granule in a supermarket shop. While I am sure that if we could be bothered to have looked online, there is a very simple way of making your own gravy thicken up, I dare say it just wouldn’t taste as rich (or be as simple) as mixing half a pint of boiling water, 4 heaped teaspoons of granules and an Oxo cube…
It is driving us quite crazy,
That we just can’t make nice gravy,
A mix of Oxo and water,
Doesn’t taste like it oughta,
It really is too thin,
It’s going in the bin,
This lack of cooking knowledge is simply quite a sin,
We need to do something brave,
Let’s head on down to Pak ‘n Save,
We might find something else to crave,
Maybe there’ll be something good to save us from this blow,
But look, over there, we’re saved…on the foreign shelf, Aaaaah! Bisto!
Has anyone ever written original poetry about such a thing before? I hope not!! Bisto to the rescue!
