After Keith worked SO hard finishing the floor on Saturday, I decided to slave away in the kitchen and make a “Farm Fresh Breakfast.” Okay, okay… I didn’t actually, SLAVE away. As much as I’d love to tell you that I worked as hard in the kitchen as Keith did on the flooring… but I didn’t. (shhhh… don’t tell)
Actually, I’ve been making these homemade biscuits for a while now and they are really delicious AND easy to make.
- 2 cups biscuit baking mix (like Bisquick… that’s what I used)
- 1/2 cup sour cream (or yogurt)
- 1/2 cup 7 up soda
- 1/4 cup melted butter
Start by mixing the sour cream with the bisquick in a bowl. Once it’s combined, add the soda. It will come together as a wet dough. Now sprinkle a clean surface with more biscuit mix and drop your dough ball into the middle of of the mix. Lightly fold your dough just until it is no longer sticky. (It will be very soft) Now shape it into a thick square like this…
Now take a biscuit cutter or a glass and cut your biscuits. (My cutters are all still packed, so I just used a glass this time…. really anything will work. I used to make mine square, just to be different)
Keep cutting biscuits until you have no more dough. You can just keep kneading scraps into another thick flat square… or circle or amoeba… whatever it turns out to be) and keep cutting!
While you’re doing this, melt your butter and pour it into your pan. (I use a glass pan so I can pop the whole thing into the microwave to melt the butter. ) Then, put the biscuits into the butter-coated pan. I make a little indention in my biscuits with my knuckle. I’m not exactly sure why I do it. Again, it’s just what I do to be different. Bake the biscuits at 425 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. Set it for 10 and then check on it. Sometimes it takes 15 minutes… sometimes it takes closer to 12. It just depends on the oven… and the day.
I spread the tops with melted butter when they come out of the oven. Serve them up with bacon and eggs… butter and honey… ham and mustard… whatever floats your boat… and soak up the praise! Seriously, these are SOOOO yummy and easy enough to make on a school day. Try them! You’ll be happy you did!!! Happy Baking!!
Oh! I almost forgot the “heebee jeebees” part of the blog.
So… you should know that my sweet husband is the bravest man I know. He takes charge in a very calm head when there is any type of emergency. If someone is lost or in danger… he’s there ready to help in any way. He can stitch up a cut, protect you from the boogyman and fix just about anything no matter how dangerous. That said… I’ve got to share this. On Sunday, Keith and I found ANOTHER black widow spider in the shop. (If you’re counting… that makes 6 so far.) Keith picked it up with a piece of scrap wood.
After he … um… “disposed” of the icky spider, he got a SERIOUS case of the heebee jeebees. He danced around like he was covered with spiders, squealing and totally creeped out. He was all “AHHHHHHH!!! THAT IS SOOOOO GROSSSSSSSS!” I laughed so hard I almost couldn’t breathe. I snapped a quick pic…
He’s got a terrific shirt that Taylor and I got him for Christmas. It says “There’s nothing to fear but fear itself…. and spiders.” ROFL!!! Seriously, Keith has to be the funniest person on the planet! He makes my life SO wonderful. 🙂
Okay… that’s all from the farm tonight. Sleep well… oh! and be sure to check your shoes for spiders in the morning. *wink.
