Hello, Happy Sunday and Welcome to the Farm! Here's hoping that everyone has had a productive and fun week. Did you get any projects done that you wanted? Go on a fabulous vacation that you've been waiting a long time for? Just have some nice and quiet down time to relax? Any and all things that you enjoy are productive and fun. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
|Look at that spicy goodness our butcher comes up with!|
|Ready to go into the oven.|
Hubby: Good morning.
Hubby: I want breakfast.
Sarah: Me too.
Hubby: Tell yo moma biskets n gravey.
Sarah: (after texting me that he wanted biscuits and gravy) She said too bad.
Hubby: See how she is.
Sarah: She's a meanie.
Hubby: And she's short.
Ok, like THAT'S gonna get him breakfast! Right... So, after telling my hubby that he's been mean to me (via Sarah) I told him no biscuits. And certainly no gravy. And what do I get? This conversation:
Sarah: You're a snitch.
Me: I'm not making biscuits and gravy. He's being incredibly obnoxious.
Sarah: He just wants his lovely wife to make him a little biscuit with gravy on it. He wants to taste the love.
Me: BWAH HAHAHAHAHA! Good try. But no. When he hangs my basket I will make him b&g...maybe
|Fresh out of the oven - light and fluffy!|
Sarah: Your basket is hung. Now it's bg time.
Will they NEVER let up? My gosh, get off me already! But, when I looked, my basket was hung EXACTLY where I wanted it. Now what do I do? So, I got out the stinkin' sausage to thaw. Keeping in mind that I didn't wake up until almost noon, it was a pretty sure bet that biscuits and gravy were not being had for breakfast. I guess that leaves dinner. Lunch is out of the question as I JUST GOT UP, OK???? And besides, Mr. Scrappin wasn't home. He was down at the barn. There ya go. I'm off the hook.

Hey, whatever works!
Ruth Ann Stelfox's Favorite Golden Biscuits
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup milk
In a medium bowl, combine flours, baking powder, sugar and salt; mix well. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk until moistened. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8 to 10 times. Roll to 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a 2-1/2 inch biscuit cutter and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
|See how the spices color the gravy?|
|Biscuits & Gravy, fake hash browns and eggs from my|
friend Leslie's chickens. Hubby is happy!
So, I've got the biscuits finished, the gravy just about done, and hash browns on their way to crispiness. And hubby decides that since we are actually having hash browns, how about those eggs? Good grief. Will this nightmare never end? Really? NOW you want the eggs? Sigh...ok, he gets eggs. And now that it's all done, he better eat it. ALL OF IT.
