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 Combination
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 Puppy Picture
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!
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!
