This is a family favorite that my dad taught me long ago. It’s very filling and if company arrives unexpectedly for breakfast, just add more flour and milk. This recipe works best with a cast iron skillet as it holds heat so well. And besides, it makes the meal more authentic! Serve over buttermilk biscuits.
In a skillet on medium heat cook pork, onion, green pepper, red pepper flakes, and garlic until pork is crumbly. Drain off excess fat, but leave a small amount.
Combine butter, salt, and pepper with the meat mixture and stir until butter melts. Slowly sift flour over the top. Mix gently and allow mixture to cook for 5 minutes. It will burn, so do not let it sit unguarded. Don’t forget to scrape the bottom of the pan. Add the sage and thyme.
Slowly stir in milk, about a half a cup at a time, and incorporate it well. When the mixture thickens, add more milk. Do not let it boil vigorously, or it will burn. Add chicken bullion and let cook for five minutes. Again, if it thickens too much, add more milk. Adjust taste with more salt and pepper if needed.
Just before serving, add the parsley, and about a 1/4 cup more milk; the gravy will thicken quickly as it cools.

The sweetness is often vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full longer, and not want likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before break .
Make fruit a morning habit is easy . Easy as put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the table next to your cereal bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
