Southern Country Biscuits with Sawmill Gravy

This is the way my husband and I have started our day for 54 years. Breakfast is our main meal of the day and we are unable to function without our hot biscuits and a good cup of coffee. My grandchildren all love to come to our house on the week-ends to eat biscuits and gravy.
