Southern Girls

Yes, I am a Southern girl. So what is a Southern girl you ask. We are known for our hospitality, charm, style, manners and hopelessly in love with history and our family traditions.

Our accent gives us away every time and men can't resist the slow drawl that is filled with charm. It has been said that a Southern girl's accent reminds us of the simple pleasures in life.

Southern girls always respond with "Yes, ma'am," "Yes, sir," "Please," "Thank You" and "Bless Your Heart." Etiquette is one of the first words we are taught, Bless Our Hearts. A Southern girl knows the most important thing to remember is that actions speak louder than words.

Sugah, before I leave you I want to share one of our favorite Southern Recipes, Chocolate Gravy. If you were lucky enough to have a Mama that served Chocolate Gravy and Hot Buttered Biscuits when you were a child, Bless Your Heart.


CHOCOLATE GRAVY
2 Cups Milk (we use 2%)
1 Cup Sugar
3 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Heat milk on medium heat in medium saucepan. While heating your milk, combine the sugar, cocoa and flour; set aside. As soon as milk is hot, add the dry ingredients. Stir with a wire whisk until desired thickness. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Serve over hot buttered biscuits.
Until next time. . . .

Oh my heavens - my tastebuds are perky! That recipe sounds SO delicious. I didn't grow up in the south (unless Southern California counts ;) ) but I could sure learn to love cooking like this.

Thanks for sharing, Debbie!
