Our family had planned to take a trip to Carowinds this weekend. But with Hurricane Matthew scheduled to make landfall in the Carolina's this weekend, I think we are going to stay home and hunker down. I was reading tonight that some of the interstates have reversed traffic and have all 8 lanes open to traffic headed away from the coast. With all the ice storms and flooding that south carolina has had in recent years I am glad they are taking precautions and preparing for the worst. But let's all keep praying for the best too.. My prayers are with everyone out there dealing with this terrible storm.
A lot of the evacuees are coming to my South Carolina town, (Aiken) looking for shelter and I'm saddened to read on facebook that a lot of hotels and motels are already full. I know that the local high school is being used as a shelter so if anyone reading this is looking for shelter in the aiken area you might try the high schools, starting with South Aiken High School, it is the one I heard named the most.
That said, what I actually wanted to blog about tonight was Mary B's biscuits. I have never bought frozen biscuits before, but you see, mama bought some food to carry to her work, because sometimes they cook there, and when she got there she found that the other shift who shares a fridge with her shift.. well, they had locked the food they bought and brought to work in a container with an actual lock.. Mean time they were using her butter. Well.. That simply would not do, She packed it all up in grocery sacks and brought it home.
Well daddy is a tempramental old cuss and it also would not do for him to know she was "feeding the masses" at work. She stopped by and blessed us with some gifts of grocery.. No complaints her because I too am a feeder of the masses.. Among those groceries was a frozen bag of Mary B's biscuits, and as I mentioned, I've never tried frozen biscuits so I wasn't sure how they would go over here on the Plantation, but I have to say they were awesome, and very blog worthy.
The biscuits came 20 to the package, so we ate them twice, me cooking 10 each time, both times they were all eaten. The first night I served them with "redwood's Billy's smoked sausage" . I sliced the link sausages in half leaving the casing on one side intact so they wouldn't curl so bad, and then put the sausages between the biscuits with grape jelly and they loved it. Tonight I served them as a side to beef mac n' cheese and baked beans and both times every single biscuit was eaten, and this is huge because my family isn't that big on breads.
I have to say these were the closest to home made biscuits I have ever tried, they were moist, flakey, and my hat is off to the chef who created these heavenly balls of cooked dough. I will be buying these in the future and serving them often, I already have a ham biscuit idea planned for the next batch we buy. Thanks mom for sending this little treasure our way.
What is your favorite biscuit, canned, frozen, homemade? Tell me all about it, maybe Ill try it and review it here with credit given to you for turning me on to it's awesomeness
Until next time Ill leave you with a fun little video of the grandgirls and the cat, enjoying this cooler autumn weather.. Cat's don't fetch by the way...
