I love Saturdays. D and I sleep in and take our time getting around. It’s my favorite part of the week. Since I have to work on my birthday D is letting me have today as my “do whatever I want to day”.
Today I choose reruns of “Angel” and Biscuits and Gravy. I am so grateful to all the grandmothers and mothers of this world teaching us how to make comfort food. It’s been months since I’ve had it and I was craving it something fierce. If you don’t know how to prepare this basic breakfast food, you are missing out. I have worked on it for years and it seems like each time I do it’s slightly different. Today, however, I did it completely right. The gravy was perfect, the biscuits were fluffy and light. D even mooned over me having made it.
Cooking is so gratifying. I love watching someone respond with excitement to something I’ve prepared for them. Now I’m the first to tell you I am my own worst critic. I can find a flaw in even my most perfect dish. When someone smiles and says, “wow this is amazing”, well that’s just fun.
If you want to learn how to make this … I can hook you up. It’s not nearly as difficult as you might imagine.
Happy eating! Yum-Mee
