Biscuits ‘N Gravy

I think this is one of my favorite meals. I remember learning how to make this on a wood cookstove!

You can make it by itself with sausage or bacon to give it extra flavor. It is delicious over biscuits, toast, Salisbury steak, scrambled eggs and just about anything else your little heart could imagine.

Use your favorite biscuit recipe or buy some of the ‘whack ’em on the counter’ biscuits. I have used the Emergency Rolls, 7 Up Biscuits, toast, and even the 30 minute Rolls for this meal. Continue reading “Biscuits ‘N Gravy”

Boston Baked Beans

We usually eat this one day for dinner with Mac-n-Cheese, Slaw, and Rolls. Then we will eat them the next day for lunch. Continue reading “Boston Baked Beans”

Fried Cabbage

Tomato Gravy

This recipe reminds me of the tomato dumplings my mom-mom used to make when I was little. Oh, how I loved those! This is a meal that just kinda changes up things every once in a while and it won’t be a meal that is for everyone. We really enjoy it here though. Continue reading “Tomato Gravy”

Alice Springs Chicken (copy cat)

I make this recipe every 3 -4 months because it is a little bit more expensive and takes a little more time to put together. It is well worth the extra time though. Continue reading “Alice Springs Chicken (copy cat)”

Bacon Grits/Cheesy Grits

My kids love grits, buttered grits, cheesy grits, and especially bacon grits! This is a super simple way to prepare them when you are short on time. My kids usually eat these served over their scrambled eggs with some jelly toast on the side. Continue reading “Bacon Grits/Cheesy Grits”

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. During the week we have a schedule that we go by:

  • Mondays: Cereal/Oatmeal
  • Tuesdays: French Toast
  • Wednesdays: Muffins or Toast
  • Thursdays: Pancakes
  • Fridays: Cereal/Oatmeal

This helps keep the morning chaos to a minimum as there is no fussing about what we will be having.
