This morning I was up before 6 but I got busy doing one thing and then another – a bit of laundry but mostly knitting. It got to be about 10 a.m. and Vince was looking at me and I realized he was probably wanting some breakfast.
I rarely buy biscuit mix because it’s so easy to make, but mostly I make biscuits from scratch. I bought this Zatarain’s mix when we were in Louisiana and never used it so I figured this morning was a good time to get it out of my pantry. One grocery store here has Bulgarian buttermilk that I love but most other buttermilks that I buy are just too thin for my preference. The other day at Kroger I noticed buttermilk made from whole milk. Mostly it’s made from lowfat milk so I bought the whole milk buttermilk and it’s as thin, if not thinner than the lowfat buttermilk. Instead of using plain milk in the biscuits, I used some of that buttermilk . . just to help get rid of it. The biscuits were good but I still prefer to make my own.
We had eggs, bacon, biscuits and grits. For me it was worth the wait . . not sure how Vince felt about it. Having breakfast this late means that our next meal will be about 3 p.m. — leftover mac & cheese meatloaf, baked sweet potatoes and salad. The lazy cook rules this kitchen! 🙂
