December 14 – National Biscuits and Gravy Day 2017 Quote of the Day: A positive attitude and a sense of humor go together like biscuits and gravy. Dolly Parton National Biscuits and Gravy Day 2017 Today is National Biscuits and Gravy Day. For us, the Southern tradition of biscuit making is still alive and thriving. The art of making light and fluffy buttermilk biscuits is passed down generation to generation much like making tomato gravy.
