Gravy Dinner

Everson is usually a really good eater. He eat whatever Todd and I eat for dinner that night. Well tonight Everson decided to modify the meal in his own peculiar way. Pot Roast was on the menu tonight and every other time I have cooked it Everson has eaten the meat and some of the veggies so I was expecting him to do the same tonight. First bite went in his mouth, he chewed it up and then spit it out. The next five bites that followed he did the exact same thing. I decided to give him the gravy in a bowl instead of just pouring it on his tray. He got a piece of meat on his fork, dipped it in the gravy in the bowl put it in his mouth, chewed it up and swallowed. Yes, a success. We would not have guessed what would have followed if you gave us a hundred guesses. Instead of going for another bite of meat, Everson decided to skip the dipping part and go right for the "sauce" gravy. He picked up the bowl and gravy, jugged it down and asked for more. With big smiles on both my and Todd's face I put more gravy in his bowl to see if he would drink it again. Sure enough, down his hatch the gravy went and again he asked for more. Everson decided he wanted to drink three bowls of gravy for his dinner than eat the actual food. Todd and I thought it was hilarious. Gravy has some nutritional value right?
