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???
