Biscuits with gravy and apple butter

Jacob "requested'' biscuits and gravy last night for breakfast this morning :)
So I got up and made a batch of biscuit dough. I used self rising flour, cut in some shortening, and added milk.

I rolled out the dough and then used one of my small cups to cut them out.
Placed them into the oven.

 As the biscuits were baking I added flour to my bacon grease and browned it to desired color and then added my mixture of milk and water. (2/3 milk-1/3 water)
 I constantly stir it until it thickens..Not as thick as usual this morning. I also add salt and pepper.
Then I broke up the biscuits and added some gravy on top and apple butter on the side.
I usally make eggs, sausage or bacon with gravy..but he didn't want any this morning...

WOW! I'm sorry, but I just cannot drag myself out of bed to make homemade biscuits. Sad, but true. You are an inspiration to me! It looks delicious!
