I freeze gravy in ice cube trays and then transfer to ziplock.  Great to toss into dinner when I don't have time to make gravy, great to toss into shepard's pie, etc....  And sometimes we thaw to put on baked potatoes.

Fresh baby ears of corn...yummy!  Salads, stir fries, stews, cut up in soups.  I use canned only if fresh is not available.

You could freeze the gravy for a future meal, where you don’t normally make a gravy. 

I’ve never cooked with the baby corns.  I remember being a very young child, maybe preschool years, and they had them on the relish trays at a party.  I ate them like a big ear of corn, and gave the family a laugh.

Went back today...DS had the burger from the specials and I had a breakfast burrito...delicious again.  Brought home more donuts to taste!  Good thing we don't live any closer.

Half Baked is worth the drive.  It's a cute, tiny place with maybe seats for 16.  I had a turkey, bacon ranch wrap that was good.  DS got the pulled pork tacos which he thought were delicious.  We brought home 2 giant monkey buns (think monkey bread in a XL muffin cup) and an assortment of donuts...salted toffee, coffee cookie crumble, and blueberry pancake.  We took a couple to my sister's house so we tried the salted toffee and blueberry pancake (this one was my favorite).  I bought their homemade granola which is delicious.  We are planning to go back tomorrow.  DS is hoping they have their roast beef sandwiches on special tomorrow.

DS declared the monkey bun the best pastry he's ever had!
