I know that might be obvious, but biscuits are easy. So much so that most people have a basic version memorized. So here’s a easy-peasey version that after a few uses you’ll have it memorized too. 2 c flour (all-purpose) 4 tsp baking powder ½ tsp salt ⅓ c shortening ⅔ c milk Preheat oven to 450° Mix flour thru shortening on low for 1 minute. Slowly mix in milk until just clingy. do not over beat Pull out dough & on a lightly floured surface, knead for about 20 seconds. Roll out to ½” thick. Cut out & bake on a cookie sheet. Bake 12 – 15 minutes. Serve immediately. I would suggest checking your baking powder expiration date because otherwise they’ll fall flat!
…to bring you a breaking story. Ha, well, maybe that’s not true. But I will break to talk a little about city involvement. I went to a city planning meeting (the kind for the actual citizens) & it was worth making the contacts & being heard. If I run across my YouTube pro-city video I might just post it one Thursday.
But hey – end of soapbox, I’m going back to my tv show & popcorn. It’s been a looooong Thursday.
A late night post, I know, I know. Been a bit busy & not slowing down! I have a big reunion this weekend & I’m getting ready. Food, like at most of my family gatherings is center front. 🙂
We eat… A lot. Some healthy, some not, but all delicious. So I just have a question of what do you feed your family when it’s hangout time? I’m looking for a new favorite to try out.
We have all heard of Colorado. What pain & misery has been bled through unexplainable horror. Oh our God is weeping. Weeping. He does not love us to be in such pain but this is an evil world. What humans have done through sin is unbelievably disappointing. We have failed from Gen 3 on. But the God of the universe feels & empathizes with our pain. One of theshortest verses has so much meaning.
John 11:35 – Jesus wept.
This verse takes place after Lazarus’ death, which we all know doesn’t last. Read chapter 11 again & study everyone’s take on the “lateness” of Christ & then study his reaction. He WEPT. He knew he was to raise Lazarus again, but he felt their pain & he grieved for HIS friend. He knows pain and he knows suffering & yes the cross is big on that but this is him losing a friend & knowing how much of a hole that leaves behind. What power these two words really have.
There are many links but this one hit home, & the tears flowed. I hope I know that a man other than my father (who’s awesome) would take link info of authority in a time of need. May God be with those who lived & must keep living.
I used a recipe from one of my favorite food bloggers. This “pie” tastes great but the dough she recommended (no refrigeration) performed poorly. I will not try to make another dessert with that dough again! Here’s the link to her filling recipe, but I suggest you use your own favorite pie dough! You will need to make enough to cover the bottom of a 15×10 rimmed cookie sheet & to top it off. It will look slightly like a large pop tart in all honesty.
