Chipped Beef Gravy

This is comfort food.  It is easy and quick to make. I keep dried beef as one of my emergency supply staples.  I have to go through and use it every once in a while, so it doesn’t expire if nothing else.   Plus, I love chipped beef gravy! My allergic-to-milk husband is away on business, […]
