I have been looking forward to Saturday all week, and counting Weight Watcher points, ignoring hunger, just so I could have chocolate gravy and biscuits. It was worth the wait. Mom managed to make it through one serving , and said it was just too "different;" she wanted no more, and so ended her experience with a true Southern dish. Some people in Texas, and the South grew up on this, but a lot didn't. My mother-in-law never mentioned it, and I never heard of it until I was teaching in Welch, Texas. One of the dad's brought my class chocolate gravy and the kids did the biscuits. I am not going to put the recipe here, because all you have to do is go to The Homesick Texan blog and download hers. This is one of the blogs I follow, and find a lot of interesting things to cook. She suggested adding a little cayenne pepper to it, and that sounds good, but I haven't tried it. I do recommend the chopped pecans, though.
The highlight of Saturday was Roberto, Marina, and Rhys here for dinner and football. Great Grandma got to hold him.
