Well I accomplished more than I thought I would yesterday.
I did a triple batch of pancakes, a batch of banana muffins,one lasagna,and two chicken tretrazinis. All before lunch and before it was so hot outside that they house wouldn’t recoup from the heat of the oven and stove top.
After lunch the littles and I headed off to the city to trade some diapers for a baby bath with a mom from my AP group and then we headed over to another friend’s house to pick up our produce. It is always fun to get the box home and see what is in it for the week. This week there were tomatos,cucumbers, eggplant(purple and white),mushroom,cabbage,and bell peppers.
We had one of the tetrazinis for supper last night and I sliced cucumbers,peppers and tomatos to go with it. Oh and we had homemade biscuits. Of course this meant that I had to have my biscuits with mayo and a slice of tomato on it and everyone else slathered theirs with butter and honey. There is one left over this morning and I am going to slather it in butter and grape jelly. Which reminds me of a story from my youth!
Since my dad was Navy we traveled a lot and would often come home to Mississippi between duty stations. At one point dad was a recruiter so we got live in Mississippi for a year or so. Anyway we would often go out to his parents house, my maw maw and paw paw. Maw maw was well known in the family for her “cat head biscuits” so called because they were as big as a cat’s head. I was well known in the family for sliding up next to my paw paw and taking a cat head biscuit, spreading it with a little bit of butter and promptly adding enough grape jelly to choke a horse. I would usually eat my weight in those things. I remember when the biscuits were no longer a staple at their home anymore. Paw Paw had passed away and maw maw was not standing and cooking as long as she used too. I was sad about it but I just had a thought, I’m not sure the biscuits would have tasted as good as they did since Paw Paw wasn’t there to slide up next too and help me spread the jelly.
Today I may or may not make up some biscuits,crescent rolls and a few loaves of bread. My feet were so swollen last night. Maybe I will just knit today and do laundry.
What ever you are doing today I hope you have a great day!!!
