Laura Teaches Us How to Drive Cook

I'd seen the main WhiteHouse-dot-org site before, but I had never ventured into The First Lady's Recipe Box. All I can say is, Mmmmm. Here's a sample recipe from that loveable Everymom:

MOTHER'S SLIM JIM GRAVY


PREPARATION:

Peel the plasticy (but, gracious, I think it is something else!) outer layer off of 15 Slim Jims with a sharp knife or your teeth
Scrape out the wonderful filling with a grapefruit spoon and place in ¼ cup of boiling water.
Cook until the water turns a brownish-yellowish-green (like used chewing tobacco in the bottom of a Styrofoam cup).
Put 4 Tablespoons of the "Slim Jim Nectar" in a pan
Blend in 4 Tablespoons of flour, using a low heat, and stir until smooth
Slowly stir in 2 cups of water and the rest of the Slim Jim Nectar
Boil for 5 minutes, stirring with the hand you are not smoking with.
Add 1 teaspoon of Gravy Master (my secret!)
Turn off the heat and add 2-3 cups (to taste) of Gordon's Vodka.
Serve!

NOTE: Remember if you have to reheat the gravy, all the vodka will be burned off and it will be ruined.


Not to be missed: Laura's Smoked Turkey Freedom Fowl with nicotine patches.
