I decided there was no better time than Ash Wednesday to make a fresh start. My "fasting" commitment is to try and eat out of my pantry for the next several weeks (sans milk and eggs which truthfully I sometimes leave on the counter, but should be kept fresh.) Although my diet will primarily consist of marinara sauce, Fiber One bars, and vanilla extract - I did realize I had quite a few baking basics. I combined that inventory with my love for all things flour-based and got to cooking. The first recipe on the outside of the White Lily all-purpose bag was Light and Fluffy Biscuits. I halved* the ingredients, since "light" is not a reference to the way they would look on my hips. Plus, I've been known to eat biscuits like grapes, but with melted butter and honey.
Here's what I created:
A couple of things you may have noticed that I'll try to explain. The recipe should have made six, but I didn't have a biscuit cutter. So I used a juice glass with an obvious less-than diameter. This led to 7 biscuits and an inordinate amount of leftover dough.
So I snatched a handful and created Biscuit B, which sorta looks like a fluffy dropping from a white labrador. And still I had excess dough, so I split it between biscuits A and C. Waste not, want not.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why I am single...FOR A SEASON.
*I had to look up on whether the correct word is "halved" or "halfed" - thank you www.wordreference.com.
