The origin of the Turkey on Thanksgiving in it’s glory is largely due to Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post cover. During wartime beef went to the troops although this year, amidst war, it seems like we are making little or no sacrifices.
"None of us have tasted Beef these three years back as it must all go to the Army, & too little they get, poor fellows."

Gravy…
Deglaze your turkey bits and store.
Reserve 1/4 cup (more if you want) pan drippings…
heat very hot and add an equal amount of flour.
Stir in and cook until a light brown to medium brown paste. Remove from heat, it will keep cooking gradually add a flavored stock (star anise & chicken stock…? white wine reduced about in half?)…
adding it gradually will keep it from becoming lumpy…

DON’T BURN IT!
