Monday's meal

Well, I thought since I was on a roll of southern style dishes I would include a recipe for a perennial favorite. Biscuits, they're good in the morning, good in the evening...heck, they are good any time. My ds, M loves biscuits so much he would just about eat them every day.
Oh and never fear...if you don't have any buttermilk on hand, just make some by adding a tsp or so of lemon juice or white vinegar to the prescribed amount of milk and let it sit for about five minutes and you're good to go. Enjoy!

Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix all your dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Now add the shortening, mixing until your mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out fairly thinly 1/2-3/4 inch thick, cut with a floured rim of a glass or a biscuit cutter if you have one. Place 1 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

I did stay on budget! There where several times I had to really get creative with what I already had! So nice not to spend so much and not to have to go out in the crowds to shop!

You should try it! :)
