there is nothing much better than chocolate gravy and biscuits on a cold ... maybe not so cold, rainy sunday morning.
i'm pretty sure this recipe has been in my family for a long time ... i even go as far as liking to think of it being handed down from generation to generation. a country recipe so good it has become a comfort food for my family ... i do love me some chocolate gravy.
... and hopefully you will too! all you need is:
4 tablespoons flour (all-purpose)
2 tablespoons coco (baking)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups milk
a dash of salt
mix all of the dry and wet ingredients separately. go ahead and pour the dry ingredients into a pan on the stove top and slowly mix in the wet ingredients while stirring constantly. while continuing to stir bring the mixture to a boil. once it boils turn the heat off but continue to stir ... it will begin to thicken. [if mixture is too thick for you liking, you can add a little water] and enjoy!

happiness is a choice. you have to wake up and make a conscience decision to make the best out of every situation. to learn something from every mistake. to look for the high in every low. if you choose happiness you'll see happiness in the world around you.
coffee is always a good idea.
two things will always be sexy ... a man with a guitar and a southern gentleman.
i will never be a size zero ... or even a two ... hell, even an eight. and that's okay.
sometimes ... you just need to be a little selfish.
you cannot rely on other people for you to have a good time ... be your own damn good time.
the 'dirty a' will always be 'home'.
... and so far, my biggest mistakes have been my most life changing lessons.
well ... after all the planning and anxiety over this silly party ... i must say it went off without a hitch. everyone had a good time ... the food was good ... and the mustaches. oh the mustaches ... i really do love them :]
