Friends, are you serving a fun board for Mother’s Day this Sunday? Here are a lot of ideas for you over at The Big Board page, but for today … you can serve this biscuits and gravy board for breakfast or dinner! This Deviled Egg Croissant Charcuterie Board was served for Easter, but I still love it for any time of year!

Buttermilk Biscuits and Gravy Board

I love this Buttermilk Biscuits and Gravy Board for any time of year, but growing up, gravy and toast was one of my favorite breakfasts that my mom made for our family.

Did you enjoy hamburger gravy on toast as well? :)

You can grab my friend, Ree’s Sausage Gravy Recipe, or print out mine below.

As I’m inching my way toward a more mature life (HA, that means 60!), I’m trying to make every moment count. Isn’t that the way we should live?

In the moment, be gracious, generous, courageous, loving, extend ourselves to others; love God and people. I’ve shared a poem at the bottom of this post, which I love for Mother’s Day.

Biscuits and Gravy Board

Let’s start with one of my favorite breakfasts.  As I mentioned, my mom made the best gravy, and we’d often eat “gravy and toast” before going to school.

Last weekend here during quarantine, we spent the entire morning cooking together for a weekend brunch, and Abby made homemade biscuits and gravy.

What a treat!

I must admit, it’s fun cooking with my daughter in the kitchen.

I’ll cherish these days forever! I do love being a mom, my highest calling in life.

We’ve enjoyed some good meals, but seem to always come back to taco bowls when we don’t have anything special planned.

Some kind of meat mixture, and then whatever toppings (fresh lettuce, tomatoes, etc:) are in the fridge, and then, salsa, sour cream, etc.

What is your go-to recipe these days?

How to make sausage gravy

  1. Place sausage in a saucepan and turn heat to medium-high.
  2. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of flour evenly over the sausage crumbles and cook a minute longer, until the flour is absorbed.
  3. Slowly pour the milk into your skillet, stirring as you pour. Cook, stirring, until mixture is thickened.

A Prayer for the Mature Life

Here’s the poem I found, A Prayer for the Mature Life, written by Dr. Margaret Rutherford:

LORD, Thou knowest better than I know myself that I am growing older and will someday be old. Keep me from the fatal habit of thinking I must say something on every subject and on every occasion.

Release me from craving to straighten out everybody’s affairs. Make me thoughtful but not moody, helpful but not bossy. With my vast store of wisdom, it seems a pity not to use it all, but thou knowest, Lord, that I want a few friends in the end. ha!

Keep my mind free from the recital of endless details; give me wings to get to the point. Seal my lips on my aches and pains. They are increasing, and love of rehearsing them is growing sweeter as the days go by. I dare not ask for grace to enjoy the tales of others’ pains, but help me to endure them with patience.

I dare not ask for improved memory, but for a growing humility and less cocksureness when my memory seems to clash with memories of others. Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally I may be mistaken.

Keep me reasonably sweet; I do not want to be a saint — some of them are so hard to live with — but a sour person is one of the crowning works of the devil. Give me the ability to see good things in unexpected places and talents in unexpected people. And give me, O Lord, the grace to tell them so. AMEN.

Happy Mother’s Day, Friends!

Gravy instructions :

Break the meat into smaller pieces, then reduce the heat to medium-low and add the butter. When the butter has melted, add the flour and stir to combine until the flour is smooth. Finally, add the milk, and stir until the sauce has thickened—10-15 minutes. Taste for additional salt and pepper. Serve on warm biscuits with the addition of a fried egg and parsley if you’d like.
