Sunday morning the Knights of Columbus were serving doughnuts and coffee after church. It was a very tempting offer but I was craving biscuits and gravy. Fortunately, I have plenty of bacon grease stored in the fridge just for this purpose.
1/4 cup bacon grease
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Add grease to a skillet over medium high heat and when hot add flour. Cook flour, stirring constantly, until brown. Add milk, salt, and pepper; stir until there are no lumps and gravy has thickened. You can always add a little more milk or water to thin it out some but I've been making this for years and it works for me.

I swear I can't get a picture of the boys together without one of them making a goofy face.
Grades 2 and 4 are in the books. They both did a lot of growing these past 9 months...and a lot of learning, too. Nathan finished the second grade with all As while Thomas finished the fourth grade making honor roll during the 2 quarters that DIDN'T include science. Poor thing seems to have inherited my anti-science gene. Fortunately, they both inherited my pro-reading gene and we are looking forward to spending summer vacation at the library.
Next up, 3rd grade and fifth grade!
