    • Very interesting! Thank you 😁

    • Rene Sparrow says:

      What a relief, somebody knows biscuits and gravy!!! I have some southern roots, and I’m convinced Heaven will serve biscuits and gravy daily for all Eternity! It’s the perfect comfort food 🙂 When I was searching the free image sites I was appalled to see that typing in “biscuit(s)” only brought up “cookies” 🙂

      • trentpmcd says:

        My mom is from the south, and I always swore that my aunt made the best biscuits and gravy n earth until I found that everyone with southern relatives said the same thing! I’m pretty sure that in the US we think of biscuits as those bready things while in the UK it means cookies.

      • Rene Sparrow says:

        Exactly! The “best” are those almost anyone who makes them from “scratch” serve–not those Pillsbury unroll-the-can ones…although if desperate, and with enough good gravy, I’d probably eat a plate of them too! 🙂

      • I think you’re right!
