From the Foodie in Me: Texans Eat Flour and Milk

But we call it Biscuits and Gravy.

Have you ever had cream gravy? I know it's a southern thing, and not all people from the north have tried it. It will basically blow your mind. It's sooo delicious.

Here is a simple recipe for cream gravy:

3 tablespoons drippings (you can just use regular oil, but you'll get more flavor if you use drippings)
3 tablespoons flour
2 1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste

Heat drippings in a saucepan. Add flour and whisk together until you form a rue. Cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until a light shade of brown. Gradually add milk and continue to whisk over medium heat until thick and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Ate at "Kitchen's Restaurant" in Mineola, Texas.

I think they gave me enough gravy...

Love, Tina Marie
