I remember waking up to the smell of home-made biscuits and gravy pretty much every weekend, whether it was Saturday or Sunday morning. The smell of biscuits, gravy, bacon, fried bologna, and scrambled eggs would fill the house. It would be the only reason i would get out of bed on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Before my parents divorced, my dad would get up and cook all of us breakfast. I miss it so much. My mom and Memaw still cook it, but its just not the same. I liked it way better when he made it. Not just because it was better, but because the whole family was together and we had some good times on those weekend mornings.We had this little game that me and my sisters would play with my dad. He would get underneath a big blanket and walk around like he was a monster. Then he would capture us and take us under the blanket and then go after and get the others. It sounds dumb now but i sure do miss getting to spend those little moments with him. I still see him but of course its just not the same because we live in different houses. Every time i eat biscuits and gravy it takes me back to those mornings in my childhood when life was great and i had not a worry in the world. Now i’m grown and life is much more complicated. sometimes i wish i could go back and re-live it so i could appreciate it much more than i did. I had no idea how good i had it. Memaw also use to cook biscuits and gravy when we stayed the night with her on weekends. That was when my three cousins that now live in Washington were still here. She would have the house full of all her grand kids. She cooked a bunch of biscuits, gravy and sausage. After we ate we would all go outside and play in the huge club-house our paw-paw built for us. Ahhh, those were the days!
I like blogging, so i am glad were doing it again this semester. But it takes me forever to focus and write them, i get so distracted! I’m going to have to get used to it again! But anyways, for this assignment, the meal i am going to choose is what i ate the other night for dinner. My dinner was vegetable soup. In the soup, there were carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, ground beef, green beans, peas, corn, and more vegetables that i cant think of right now. I also had corn bread that went along with it and sweet tea, of course!
The carrots in the soup were either from a farm here in the United States or in another country. I’m guessing that’s the same way for the potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, peas, corn, and the others.
The ground beef is from a cow, (duh) probably one that was raised in a crowded environment getting injected with antibiotics/hormones. Which is sad, but that’s how it is done these days, unless you get the “organic” kind. The definition of organic is different for pretty much everyone. Personally I believe organic is a farm raised animal that does not receive any kind of antibiotics/ hormones.
This is kind of off topic but i believe that’s why kids nowadays are so obese because they eat chicken and beef that is full of hormones and antibiotics. It may be just me but kids seems like they are growing so fast these days.
Back on subject now.. The cornbread i ate of course had cornmeal in it and it was probably made and packaged in a factory. Well, of of these were most likely canned or packaged in a factory. The tea i drank had different herbs and things in it and water. I probably should research it because i dont realy know. haha
