WIAW 66 – Yes, More Biscuits…
Well, I was still knee deep in biscuits – but now that I’ve posted the recipe, I think I’ll give them a rest. They’ll be back, but maybe not for a week or three. (The fact that Rich was away for lunch every day, and often late for dinner, meant that I ate almost all of them… normally he’d have shared the sampling!)
Breakfast – yesterday’s biscuits, split and toasted, to be sure I could. And cheesy eggs… I’m pulling away from the bean breakfasts a bit, need to work on more options. I may go back to a protein shake, in the hot weather, especially as fruit comes in – we’ll see…
And now I’m in salad season! Well… as soon as I got the salad greens, we had a couple of cold days when soup was welcome – but now we’ve swung hot again. Allow me a moment to be an old curmudgeon, and complain that I remember the days when we had a real Spring in New York – when it gradually warmed, with bright shiny warm days… Cool in the morning, and you’d carry your jacket home. Not this swing from cold to hot to cold to hot… I just read a piece saying that the writer had never seen Spring in New York. I have, and lovely ones – but not recently. (You kids don’t know what real weather is… grumble, grumble…)
Anyway… The market is now full of lettuce – that shot up. You get these long stems with leaves an inch apart, because it grew so abruptly! But lettuce, and radishes and scallions – and I still have carrots, and, well – I thawed and marinated some frozen broccoli (because lettuce and radishes aren’t really enough vegetable for me.) Added some cooked chicken – I have to remember, now, to always have some cooked meat handy – and cheese, and serve with the biscuits I’d just made. Maybe I will keep making biscuits… they go nicely with salad, which needs some stand alone bready object. (And if I’m eating muffins with breakfast all the time… I do want some variety.)
And dinner. Pork chops browned and braised in chicken broth, then frozen vegetables and cooked brown rice heated in the same broth. Rich was late again (this gig will last another month or so) so I cooked the chops and held them, and heated everything else when he walked in the door. Sometimes you just need to be able to do that.
And now I’m dancing over to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for her WIAW party… where everyone seems to be eating salads!
