Oldiesmann: Final update on this, for those not on Seniors and Friends... I got the car. Similar payments to what I had with the Malibu, but for only 4 years instead of 6. Dec 11 2019 1:45am

Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable payments Dec 03 2019 12:04am

Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right side Oct 26 2019 10:34am

Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours? Oct 22 2019 11:42am

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

I wonder if I should try this.  Everytime I have tried making biscuits they taste great but looks similar to a light brown toad!  All bumpley!!!   ::)  Am I brave or not?





Marilyn

Oh Etta Sue you are so funny. I am going topost a different biscuit recipe too.

It is true, Marilyn.  I make biscuits though.  

1) Go to store
2) Go to biscuit department
3) Put a can of biscuits in your cart
4) Pay for biscuits
5) Take them home
6) Read directions on can
7) Preheat oven
8 ) Open can by pealing and whacking on countertop....I have this down pat!
9) Put on cookie sheet
10) Put in oven
11) Set timer
12) When timer buzzes....biscuits are done!!!!  

Don't forget the sausage gravy though! :P

BTW, they even have frozen biscuits and all you have to do is preheat the oven and put these white hockey pucks on a cookie sheet and bake.  Not bad but canned ones are better... :-[




Jeanne Lee

Etta Sue, if you make "drop" buiscuits they'll be lumpy.  To get smooth ones (like from the can) you need to roll out the dough and use a cookie/biscuit cutter - or the top of a glass - then lift each round onto the baking sheet.

I will have to agree with Etta Sue. She does have biscuit making down to a science. Her sausage gravy is great also! ;)

Etta Sue

Jeanne ~ I have a biscuit cutter.....brand new...never been used!   ;D




Jeanne Lee

I have one, too, Etta Sue.  But it's been a long time since I've seen it.  ;D

I wonder if these biscuits can be frozen and baked later!

I like your recipe, Etta Sue.  That's the one I use most!  ::) :o  But I'd really like to have some homemade ones and Marilyn's recipe sure sounds good.

PS I love to cook, just don't do it that often just for myself.

MARILYN.I'm coming over for your biscuits.  They sound delicious.

Can I have a cup of tea with them too? Please.

I used to make them years ago when I lived with my Nanna......now I make Etta Sue biscuits......

I am good at eating them though.  No problems there.

Jenny.

Judy McKenna

These biscuits do sound good, Marilyn.  Now, do you prefer them made with Buttermilk?  I happen to have a quart of Buttermilk on hand.''

I'm going to be brave and try them Thursday. (will be out most of tomorrow)....

Here is a recipe for those who don't bake!
These biscuits can be in the oven in 5 minutes with a food processor or 10 min. by hand.

2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese (optional)
1 cup of milk

Put first four ingredients in processor
Pulse just to mix
Add butter cut into chunks
Pulse until crumb stage
Put into bowl
Use grater disc and grate cheese
add to mix and stir well
add milk and mix - if dough is stiff add a bit more
put onto floured board and knead a few times
yes, really!
pat out with hands into a round and cut biscuits
put on ungreased sheet
bake at 400 for 15 to 20 min.

Enjoy!

this is the second time I wrote this out - power failure - common in our area
Jenny - will you have to convert this to oz and grams?

Pat



YUM!  Sounds good, Kay!

I really enjoy Tea Biscuits.

Jenny

KAY These look good and simple for even me ....
I will have a try but I don't possess a processor.

When I lived with my grandmother we always used cups and spoons to measure.  That's O.K. We also added cheese. In Lincolnshire we used it in lots of things...even a lump of cheese with apple pie and custard. Lovely!

I love tea biscuits too Pat with a cup of TEA OF COURSE..........you know me, don't you?

Your kitchen sounds lovely Kay. I wish I had a chef's island.  Did you finish the "varathane" coating?

Yours hungrily,
Jenny.






Marilyn

Hi Kay:
These biscuits sound good too, however I don't have a food processor either. Since I am now living alone I don't bake as much as I used to.  I was so used to cooking is such large amounts it is hard to cut recipes down for just one. Pat knows, right Pat?
