A Chocolate Gravy Companion
Well, I did it. I woke up Friday morning and starting slinging stuff into bags. I put all the van trash in a Walmart sack, and then I stuffed every nook and cranny with toys and shoes. For some reason every time I get the urge to make the long drive to Alabama, I pack like I’m going to be in a fashion show, even though I know I’ll somehow end up all muddy and smelling like a bonfire, not that there’s a thing wrong with that.
My sister is as pretty as a pregnant woman can possibly be. I came here to help her before and after she gives birth (to be induced on Wednesday), but really she’s running circles around me. Tonight she made breakfast for supper: biscuits, bacon, scrambled eggs with cheese, and CHOCOLATE Gravy! You want the recipe? It’s from one of my sister’s oldest and best friends, Annie.

Whisk and boil the following until it looks like gravy: 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk, 2 tblspn cocoa, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 1/2 tblspn butter
So, about the Sister Parties … I’m extending the deadline to link up until Tuesday evening. I know there are a few more posts out there, and it’s looking like every one has a great chance to get a prize, so if you want to whip up a gathering, do it and write a post.
I hope to announce the winners on Tuesday night, but if I don’t make it, you’ll know that Erin is in the hospital, and you’ll know to pray. I didn’t expect to get to come this week, and my wild hair is going to pay off. The women in the family are amazing. My aunt is taking off work to care for my boys while my Mama and I cheer the baby out of my strong and silly sister, something we’ve never been able to do together before.
Please pray for all our health, especially for my sister and her new baby boy.
