Making Gravy

A newly wed wife came home from work one day to find her husband had prepared a roast.  She was thrilled, but puzzled: he had cut the ends off the roast before cooking it.  In her sweetest possible voice she asked, “Sweetheart, I notice you cut the end off the roast.  Any particular reason why?”

Busy preparing the rest of the meal, he replied, “That’s the way you cook a roast.  I learned from my mother”.
