Summer Vacation – Day 6

This may be a good day for reading.  It’s 10:30 in the morning and already 77 degrees out.

I made buttermilk biscuits and country gravy for the boys this morning.  We add fresh rosemary to both the biscuits and the gravy and they all seem to love it.

buscuits and gravy The biscuits are great on their own too. With a little clotted cream and some hedgerow jelly.

Buttermilk Biscuits
     Combine and blendbiscuits

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1.5 t baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • .75 t baking soda

Cut in 1.5 sticks of cold butter the add 1 – 1.25 cups buttermilk (no buttermilk, no problem, just add a T or so of lemon juice to regular milk).  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes.

I’ve been trying to tackle small. manageable jobs this summer during the heat.  This morning I worked on the side entrance that leads into the dog run behind the garage.  There was a bunch of cedar chips, leaves and dirt all over the sidewalk, the fig tree was attacking everyone that tried to pass by and the bike rack and old water barrel that we never use was just piled up (for two years).  I moved out the junk, built a support for the floppy fig branches, swept up , weeded and put the recycling and waste bins in their places.
