Maureen: Yeah! Sunday Roast Beef! This is delicious. Thanks for cooking, Tim.
Andrew (13): Where’s the mashed potatoes? You can’t have a sunday roast without any potatoes.
Maureen: I’m with Andrew on this one.
Tim: We’re tying to have a potato-free dinner tonight.
Maureen: I’m sorry, but did you forget that I’m Irish-American? Just ask my dad. It’s not a meal without potatoes. This gravy is fantastic.
Tim: Yes, I agree. It’s really good. I can’t quite remember how it’s different from a usual gravy.
Maureen: Let me go get the cookbook and check. (Goes to kitchen to get cookbook.) Well, you use balsamic vinegar, which makes a nice difference, not to mention red wine and garlic.
Tim: I changed it a bit. I didn’t add the tarragon, but I did add chopped porcini mushrooms.
