Gravy Stories

I finished a final round of edits last week on a new children's book manuscript. A couple of trusted fellow writers have read and approved the story, so I am hopeful it will be well received.

After concentrating on the book for some time now, I decided to take a break and write some short stories. Over the the past few days I have written several humor articles. I know you aren't supposed to laugh at your own jokes, but writing those articles makes me laugh. I think I find it enjoyable because most of it is based on personal experiences.

I also enjoy cooking. I need to post some new recipes to my blog Sugar Spice and Spilled Milk, but it seems like the only thing I've made lately has been gravy. White gravy, brown gravy, gravy over mashed potatoes, gravy over eggs, gravy over biscuits. Gravy at every meal. No one wants to read a post on fifty ways to use gravy. I'll have to cook something else.

I wonder if there is any way to tie humor and cooking together. Maybe a cookbook that has a funny short story to go with every recipe would encourage people to enjoy cooking more. I don't know any gravy stories, though. I'd better stick to writing children's books.
