My (great) Uncle Roy drove in from Irving this weekend to see Nana. Between Riley's nap and our anniversary, we weren't going to be able to see him. I devised a plan so that we could...
Roy could bring Nana to our house Sunday morning to make his specialty, Biscuits and Gravy! Growing up, every time I went to Roy's house with Nana and Papa, he would make biscuits and gravy for us Sunday morning, before we headed home. I can't remember the last time I had it.
I've never made gravy--it's one of those things I've been afraid to try. It's probably a good thing that I don't treat myself to bacon grease, flour, and milk very often. When I think of biscuits and gravy, I think of Nana, Mom, and Roy--they'd be the experts as far as I'm concerned.
add flour to bacon grease,
add milk and stir as it thickens,
and voila, there you have it.
