Craving Gravy

Biscuits and gravy that is. Serious business it is. A couple weeks ago spent some time driving around Pueblo. There on the south side I saw a sign "Biscuits and Gravy 99 cents). That we can remember and had to spend the whole day there last Thursday. After getting the two reasons for being there early pretty much out of the way made easier that they coincidentally and conveniently were less than a block apart. I knew where I was headed as this had been on my mind for all that time.

The days of going out for lunch/breakfast are over. Have had lunch a couple times since my new life started last October but not once breakfast. Like 98% of Chinese joints a place that serves 99 cent B&G is gonna be a gamble but for 99 cents it will happen. Have to try it - what the hell it's an experiment and you just never know. I always hope to be surprised but very very seldom does that happen.

Was way up on the north end and real hungry so beat it down to the south side using the fast lanes. Ordered one biscuit and it's gravy plus a cup of coffee so I didn't appear too cheap. I need to add there were at four others eating having the samo. The girl was sooo nice and it cost like $2.15.

I was blown away as when it came it actually looked real good and to get to the point this was in the Top 3 of the best I've ever had. What a treat and great surprise. It may not be much but it's something anyway and very much get a kick outta shit like this I tell you.

This sweet young thing came over and we talked for awhile and my compliments were appreciated. They put some homemade into this long time used recipe and the menu they have is interesting and inexpensive.

A decision was made and even though I wanted another biscuit with gravy badly the experiment continued with a chocolate malt instead as am always hoping to be surprised there as well. They have a failure rate as high as Chinese joints. It was very acceptable and cost like $2.50 or something.

Spent until 4:30 looking around including downtown in the historic part and had just a real fun day.

Problem is all that's on my mind is not just one biscuit and gravy but two. Cannot drive 80+ miles to get two bucks worth of those but maybe I have to.

  1. Now I know you HAVE to find a reason to drive 80 miles just so you can stop for one maybe two....
