    Thanks for the bookmarks
    I have eaten biscuits and gravy for way too many years, even had SOS in the military, albeit somewhat different in flavor.
    Stay away from those spiders, I was bitten many years back and if I had of waited much longer to go to the Dr. I could have died or lost a bunch of fingers.
    Thanks, for the comments and make the biscuits and gravy. I don't know how good the biscuits are, but the gravy will make up for them.
    If your Dad and Grandpa ate biscuits and gravy they had to be pretty good guys. One tip I always mixed the baking soda in with the buttermilk.
