Happy early Thanksgiving! I hope everyone stuffs themselves silly and has fun this year! This was my first attempt at making buttermilk biscuits from scratch. I used the recipe from Local Milk, here. I figured if anyone would know how to make awesome biscuits, it would be a Southern woman.
Okay, I skipped some of the boring parts and went right to the dough! I think it was too wet. The recipe called for a “scant” cup of buttermilk which means a little less than a cup. When I used a “scant” it seemed too dry. Well, adding a little here, and then a little more, you know what happens. I’ll get better with practice.
Am I thankful? I’m super thankful. I’m most thankful for my wonderful husband, Tom, who loves me for who I am. Of course, I take good care of him making cookies and other things. But they wouldn’t taste half as good if I didn’t love him so much.
I’m thankful for my mom and that’s she still alive. I’m thankful because I can ask her things like, “What did you do after you stayed the night at the church, the time you ran away?” She told me, “They let me stay there and I went to typing school.” Of course, I’m also thankful because she’s awesome and I love her super duper a lot.
I’m thankful for the two teenagers in my life – Zach and Katie, who have made me a better human being as well, though I’m sure they had no intention of doing so. Haha!
I’m thankful for my brother and sister, knowing I don’t have to go it alone when it comes to family matters.
I’m thankful that God gave me the gift of creativity, which fills me with joy every time I create.
I’m thankful that I can live with myself when I mistakes, like I did with these biscuits. I accidentally used baking soda instead of baking powder so a bunch of them didn’t rise correctly.
I’m thankful that I come home from work to a house full of love.
And I’m thankful it’s Thanksgiving and I get to cook, and cook, and cook and cook.
