Today would have been my parent’s 40th Wedding anniversary had my mother still been alive. 40 years in today’s world is quite an achievement and there were no signs that anything would have changed for the rest of their lives had both still been alive. They had a wonderful marriage, one to be admired and appreciated. One that exuded love in everything they did and said to each other. The end of my mom’s life was a testament to their great love as my dad devotedly never left my mom’s side. We should all be so lucky to have that kind of love in our lives…
Despite my mother’s passing and no more anniversary celebrations- we still have a reason to celebrate!! Yours truly got the job she applied for!!!!! I will now be working 60% as a cook in the same nursery I am in now. In October/November we are moving to a brand new nursery and there will be a kitchen with all kinds of top modern equipment so I can prepare great meals for the kids and even better- teach the kids about making food and just food in general! I’m really excited! My friends who were in the interview told me it’s been so difficult for them to keep it a secret because they wanted to thank me for such a great interview after I had been in with them and for such great food but they couldn’t show favoritism. They told me knowing what they knew about me from before and then I gave apparently a rock solid interview and it was apparent to them without a doubt that I was the one for the job!! Can’t tell you how happy I was to hear all of this!!! So HURRAY HURRAY!!!
The Captain arrived home the same day I got my news which was like the cherry on my already fabulous day!! He was so tired so we made it an early evening Friday and Saturday we went to Hamar with Redman to meet a very nice couple who might be interested in having him come live with them- keep your fingers crossed it works out for the “little” guy.
This morning I wanted to make a special breakfast and biscuits with honey butter sounded yummy….only problem is I couldn’t find the front part of my very well used cookbook from Better Homes and Garden…(maybe the dog ate it???) Anyhoot…I went online and searched under Light and Fluffy biscuits and got this recipe:
2 cups flour
4tsp baking powder
1/2 cup shortening (I used margarine)
2/3 cup milk
Mix margarine and dry ingredients until it makes a coarse crumble. Add wet ingredients and knead until you get a workable dough. Roll out til it’s a bit thick (I like thick biscuits) and use a big glass to “cut” out your biscuit shapes…then bake at 350F (180C) for about..uff…I forgot to look…maybe 15-20 minutes? You want them golden brown…to make honey butter I took a couple tablespoons of butter and drizzled yummy honey all over and mixed then put it in the fridge to chill a bit….scrumptious!!!!
I have never used an egg in my biscuits before but this turned out great and for those who remember my previous biscuit recipe we used cream of tartar- that is excluded in this recipe so this works better for my European friends who can’t get cream of tartar.
The sun is out and I’m in here- WRONG…so I’m going to let you go my friends…will be back tomorrow…have a super day!!
Until next time….
