Dreaming of biscuits!
At 6:00 this morning I woke up with the idea of making a new flavored biscuit. Shouldn’t there be something else I’m thinking about the first thing in the morning; like are my knees going to bend this morning? or that pile of laundry that’s staring at me in the laundry room, or what’s for dinner tonight or at least something more profound than a BISCUIT. But what can I say….
Maybe I woke up thinking of this biscuit because I spent so much time yesterday entering all my herbs in a garden app on my iPhone. I spent a couple of hours walking through my yard photographing newly planted flowers — morning glories, delphiniums, snap dragons, hummingbird bush, and herbs; the list goes on and on.
Recently we relocated my herb garden from one side of the yard to up next to our house where I had bat face growing for the last 4-5 years. It was time for it to give up this prime, sunny location to some struggling herbs that were not thriving in their old home.
My husband has recently gone pot crazy and now we have 92 pots in our back yard (I counted them twice). On his way to a fishing trip a few weeks ago he and a friend stopped at Marshall Pottery in Marshall, Texas and came back with 7 pots for $100. (Now that was worth the trip just for the pots and he actually caught his limit of white bass also.) I like having my herbs in pots and now I have a huge assortment of potted herbs even closer to my kitchen than they were and they are loving their new spot in the yard.
This biscuit is getting gussied up with some dill and chives from my herb garden and a little grated white cheddar really compliments this biscuit. They are delicious for breakfast and would probably go great with a country style dinner; and there’s hardly a bread recipe that’s quicker to make than homemade biscuits.
