I'm sure most people know this, but for those who find it hard to dissociate the two meanings:
U.S. "biscuit" = not sweet, more like a bread roll, but a little doughier. Would sooner be buttery and salty than sweet, (though some people like to add jam to it).
Run the risk of being Mr. Obvious, but yeah. Even if you do know the difference between U.S. biscuit and Commonwealth "biscuit," it's hard to dispel an association you've had for a lifetime in your mental word bank.
It's not cookies and gravy.
Sausage, buttery biscuits, and gravy for both used to be my family's Sunday morning thing.
I don't know if I've had Biscuits and Gravy, what's a Biscuit?
was the one
who was lost
and found in
my own thoughts
I've laid bare
and laid there
is it me or is it you
give me reason to...
