Chicken Gravy

You know how they say "When it rains, it pours"? Well, yesterday I was brushing my teeth upstairs, turned the water off, went to use the bathroom, and heard a hissing noise.  The hose that does the hot water had sprung a small leak. And it was spewing out scalding hot water. In my efforts to stop it, the hose developed about seven more leaks.  Those leaks became a river and the water started pouring down into the living room below. Thankfully, we have a drop ceiling and we only had to take down three tiles and let them dry. But now what was going to be a kitchen remodel is going to have to be an upstairs bathroom remodel.  The vanity is ruined, we had to replace the hoses, we've discovered that there's no insulation in our ceiling (which after the water is kind of a blessing.

Also, thankfully our upstairs bathroom is very small.  We'll need a vanity, lights, flooring, wall paint, bath paint, and a new shower curtain.  And I'll tutorial it as we go. 

Okay, now onto something tasty and less house destruction-y. 
Okay, you're going to need:
1 cup of chicken broth
3 tablespoons of butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder

Melt the butter in a skillet.

Cook the garlic until it's slightly browned.

Add all the dry stuff to the flour.

Add it to the butter and cook it until the flour is just browned.

Add the chicken broth to flour mixture and whisk it until thickened.

Strain the garlic cloves out of the gravy.

Serve over potatoes for a delicious side.
