Feeding Hungry Cowboys

Twice a year Brad and Kami do the cooking for a cowboy weekend at the historic Old Bedford Village in Bedford, PA.

                                                               Last year's buckaroos

Since preparing a menu and shopping for ingredients and packing all their gear is time consuming, I volunteered to help out by baking biscuits and cornbread.  On  the hottest day of the year so far, of course.

Yes I used Bisquick.

Even with something as simple as baking mix, I had a few measuring errors.  The heat must have been addling my brain.  Not that it takes much.

But in the end the 80+ biscuits all came out fine.  They will be used at breakfast with sausage gravy.

That is my grandmother Dickey's (Mom's mom) biscuit and donut cutter which she gave to me a long time ago.

I don't remember if she made good biscuits but she was an excellent baker of pies.  She also made really good chicken pot pie, the kind with squares of rolled out dough that was dropped into broth with cooked chicken.

Those were her two claims to culinary fame.  I tried to find a picture to go with this post but couldn't find one without going upstairs and hunting through albums and just didn't have the energy.

I'm in grave need of a nice relaxing 'Isabel Moment".  Are you ready, Little One?

Yes, we'll rest a while in front of the fan before we tackle the remainder of the day.

She's such a soothing companion!

Tomorrow we make cornbread for the cowboy chili.  Think we can handle more baking, Isabel???


  1. Can't be a big measure error, the biscuits looks very good to me. Wow, 80 biscuits, That's a lot of biscuits. I love cornbread too especially if it has some Jalapinos in it.

    Isabelle must love to be photographed. I find cats difficult to take photos of. They are constantly on the move.

    Take care and don't work too hard in that heat.

  2. The kids look awesome in their cowboy attire! :-) Biscuits with gravy is one of my favorite breakfasts and your biscuits look like they turned out perfectly! Isabelle is a cutie pie, for sure!

  3. Your son certainly looks the part Pat and I can see you are enjoying all this cooking, those biscuits look great and I'm sure they'll go down well.


Thanks for visiting!
