Sausage Gravy over Biscuits
As I sat listening to the rain spattering against the screens of my spacious, little, rental apartment, I declared aloud to the room “This gravy is so good, I want to marry myself.” Lewis the resident Coon Hound and the apartments only other occupant, looked as though he would also marry me on the spot, if I would only offer him a bite.
It was May 7th, 2015. I had made sausage gravy and buttery drop biscuits and to wash it all down, a cold bottle of beer accompanied. I really felt as if my life couldn’t be more complete when I took that first, buttery bite. I had recently broken the lease on a shoddy apartment that was leaking carbon monoxide and after living with my lovely, vegetarian sister for a few months, landed a gorgeous, second level in an old, Victorian house that was going for $550/month as it was in one of the shadier areas outside the City.
I was back in the game and sausage gravy was my aim. I had never made a gravy before and for some reason, I had the preconceived notion it would be difficult. Boy was I wrong. Perhaps I should have named this “Simple Sausage Gravy”, has a nice ring to it don’t you think? But I love you all and gravy too much to limit it to sausage. It can be made from so many different things, turkey drippings, chicken drippings, hell just about any kind of drippings! But don’t take my word for it, make it! Make it and savor it with biscuits and a cold beer, and let’s thank our lucky stars we’ve avoided Carbon Monoxide long enough to revel in the goodness of gravy. Enjoy!
