    Father in law used to make chili mac for the kids. His version was mac noodles mixed with a can of chili. They loved it.

    I remember having SOS quite often in the Navy. Always sprinkled some hot sauce over it. Good stuff! Much prefer sausage gravy over biscuits though.

    My Ol' Man didn't allow it in the house. He shipped out as a sergeant in the infantry to France in July 1944. Was there until he lost his leg and he left hand was badly damaged in the Battle of the Bulge. He then spent 2 years in a VA hospital in Texas while they pieced him back together. My grandparents lived across the hall from us and they enjoyed the chipped beef on toast. So I'd eat over there when that was for dinner.

    I've made the SOS with both Chipped Beef & burger.....we prefer the burger and usually with toast or sometimes over rice. Good stuff.

    I've also made 'Steak Tips' & Gravy & served over noodles

    Biscuits & gravy??? Awesome, but must have plenty of gravy over those biscuits. Homemade & from scratch, the only way to go. I think that is as American as apple pie.:thup:

    I've made baked beans & like it a little sweet, but not too much......and is usually for special occasions.

    But a cold weather comfort food around here is hocks or leftover ham bone & bean soup, with cornbread. After soaking the beans overnight in the cold crockpot, add some onion, garlic, ham & bones and a small pinch of soda...turn it on & let it go until supper. Yum

    I love Chili mac

    From what I understand, in the South, they put gravy on just about everything. Even though my Mom was born here, she grew up in the South and taught me to cook in similar fashion. Flour gravy all the way. I'd never seen cornstarch gravy until I met hubby. Sometimes I have used cornstarch, but it's just not the same.

    Yep, My mother called it creamed chip beef, but I also overheard her tell dad that he was going to eat the shit on a shingle or go hungry one night. Dad was Navy and didn't much care for it. lol
