I was going to post this status on Facebook ‘I spent 6 years of my very early years living in the Johnson City/Erwin, TN area. The last week or so I have been craving REAL biscuits and gravy! I have tried it several times and places since being back in the USA and it is just not the same. I know I can’t make it, but I might just have to try and make it my mission to succeed!’
But it was getting to wordy! Gah!
Mamaw Love went to be with Jesus a couple months ago, maybe this is a form of grief for her. Maybe her passing has simply triggered a wave of memories. Either way my craving is strong and it always makes me a tiny bit teary.
Mamaw Love and our neighbor Grace both used to feed me full of southern food. Wanda Sparks fed my love for southern pork chops! I am so hungry now!
Richards Residence has mastered Spanish Paella and English Roast Dinners. I think Southern Biscuits and Gravy might be our next challenge!
My food is one way you know I am cross-cultural 🙂
PS I am open to receiving any good recipes for biscuits and gravy or indeed any other ‘can’t live without soul food’.
