Sunday Supper

This is what we are having for supper tonight only I am using Grand's biscuits because I am tired, people. Enjoy!

Sausage Gravy

1 (12 oz. pkg.) Sausage (pork only) We use Sage.
3 Tbsp. Butter
1/4 c. a.p. flour, more or less
3 c. whole milk or 2%
salt & pepper to taste

Put sausage in large, deep skillet. Cook over med/high heat until brown. Remove with slotted spoon. Stir butter into drippings. Add flour, stir until smooth. Reduce heat, cook until light brown. Gradually whisk in milk and cook until thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in sausage. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. If gravy is to thick, stir in a little more milk.

Julie's Favorite Biscuits (This is Charlie's recipe)

2 c. ap flour
2 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 c. shortening
3/4 c. milk
dash salt

Preheat oven to 475.
Mix together flour, baking powder & salt. Cut in shortening and blend until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; gently mix until all flour is moist. Dump out of bowl onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently for about 30 seconds. Roll or pat out about 3/4 in. thick. Cut out with cutter or jelly jar. Put in preheated 475 oven. Bake for 10-12 miutes or until light brown and not doughy. Yum Yum! (just something I think is interesting: my granny used a snuff can lid to cut out her delicious biscuits. Or an old jelly jar which she used for drinking glasses. Also, if you are a true southener, it is Supper, not dinner.!!!!!!!!!!!)

Love and Prayers Ya'll,

Julie Irene
