Biscuits & Gravy!! My new favorite food!

This past weekend was the third installment of my weekly supper club on Sundays! Kind of an underground restaurant kind of thing, I guess you could say. I have been wanting to make breakfast for one of the meals, so I figured this week was better than any! I have also been a little obsessed with biscuits and gravy...so this was the only breakfast food I could even fathom making.

Here are the fluuuuuffy biscuits.....Then they got smothered in a creamy, rich mushroom gravy! Duh. On the side, I made homemade seitan sausage patties, which turned out brilliantly for my first try, and a Local Potato Hash made with local yukon gold and sweet potatoes, homegrown peppers and tomatoes, garlic, and local onions. This was a superb and filling breakfast...I think everyone else was pleased as well!
And for a nice little after-breakfast dessert: Parfaits! The fruit was a mixture of local peaches, watermelon, and pawpaws....mmmm...and on top was vanilla soy yogurt and a sprinkling of my homemade granola! Perfect ending to a perfect breakfast!

If there was an independently run little basement cafe like that in my hood, I'd be there every week :) looks wonderful!

just found this blog linked on facebook! as a vegan new to columbia, it makes me happy to see such things going on here. came from springfield, mo... not quite as vegan friendly/filled as columbia seems so far.

can't wait to go dig up old posts and try recipes!

Colin said...

ok wait, your profile says you're in columbia but just read the post about the opening of your underground cafe and it said KC...

so where are you currently?

Laura said...

i moved to kc in august...sorry for the confusion! but columbia IS great for vegan/veg food options!! and there is an amazing farmers' market! if you are ever in kc, let me know and i can make you dinner!
