I ask this as I dip the spoon into at least 1 and 1/2 inches of gravy to get to the mashed potatoes. It was a panic hypoglycemic meal, I had about 60 second to come up with something. The plastic (instant) potatoes were in the cast iron pot, the Argentine pre cooked roast beef (with its own gravy, half the tin), was in a stainless steel pot, they merged in record time due to switching the pots when the first boiled. The left side of the buffet counter top heat unit (hot plate) is a slow soft heat delivery unit, the right side is a much stronger heat delivery unit. I am spooning it between key contact with this keyboard. The potatoes are mostly gone now, only the gravy and a couple of chunks of the beef remain, soon to be gone out of sight. I threw in a half of a packet of gravy powder mix and a bit of water, my tongue is elated right now. There should be a gravy law, too much is almost enough would be the theme in my opinion!
