Oh Monday, I am so not a fan of you. I had a pretty great weekend, but I suppose everything good has to come to an end right?! Let’s recap the weekend!

Best New CombinationIMG_2882


whole wheat english muffin, whipped cream cheese, sliced thin apple and cinnamon

I’ve been having this combination for breakfast for the past 4 days now. I can’t get enough of it! Except for now I am out of english muffins, and that makes me very sad.

Best MealIMG_2891 IMG_2892

Friday night I was seriously craving biscuits and gravy. When I was younger, every time I visited my daddy, my mom #2 would make me biscuits and gravy with scrambled eggs one of the mornings. She makes the BEST drop biscuits. I guess I was craving comfort Friday night, because I really needed my biscuits and gravy! Apparently however, everyone makes their gravy with sausage, which I do NOT like, so I decided to make my own version, just without the sausage!

Sausage-Less Gravy
Thick, creamy and delicious, just like the kind my mom makes!


  • 2 T flour
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 C milk
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning or herbed chicken
  • salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a pan. Sprinkle in flour and whisk to form a paste. Let cook 1 minute. Pour in milk and whisk constantly. Add seasonings, still whisking away. Bring to a boil while whisking and continue to cook until thickened. Will thicken up even more once removed from heat.

Talk about delicious. I crumbled up 3 biscuits along with 2 scrambled eggs and dumped on my gravy. IT WAS PERFECT. It hit the comfort craving spot, and all the right taste buds. Even better? I didn’t even once think about the fact that there were no veggies or fruit on my plate. I just munched away happily. Talk about comfort!

    Ohhh cream cheese, apples, and cinnamon – definitely a winning combination. I’ve been having more-or-less the same kind of thing at breakfast for months now. Chunky applesauce, tart yogurt, cinnamon, and wheat. Looooove. And when it comes to comfort food, I love me some baked Mac&Cheese. My mom makes a dish that’s absolutely to die for, so I’d say that’s probably one of the meals that reminds me of home as well.

    wow all your foods are calling out to me right now~especially the cream cheese english muffin and gravy! I actually love gravy and like you, there are random times when I’ll want something comforting! The other day at my work lunch hr. I drove to Whole Foods to get some lentils and their mac&cheese. I’m usually not a big fan of Mac&cheese but this one was soooooo good!!!!!!!!! And the noodles were huge hehe. ps: oh! just noticed Amanda is talking about M&C too lol
