Next week won’t be much better, but come on and get a great start to the most hectic time on earth–America’s solstice social habits.
I promise, after November 7th, we’ll get on to something lighter, like recipes and time savers. We’ll need the break.
After all, recipes and time savers are part of being home, right? Right!
And home’s cool, right? Right!
In fact, here’s a sneak preview recipe. I call it Lightning Emergency Biscuits. Only two ingredients, ready in 15 seconds flat.
Here goes: Mix equal parts of self-rising flour and whipping cream. Period.
Mix with a fork and be quick about it because this starts out runny and thickens itself to biscuit dough consistency like lightning. You are done. Just knead, cut, and bake as usual. My family swoons over these. They don’t make good dumplings, though. Sighs.
The best part about this, in my opinion, is you can mix just 1/4 cup cream with 1/4 cup self-rising flour and have yourself a nice big biscuit in no time, with no leftovers. OR, you can mix a whole quart of cream with 4 cups s/r flour and feed the whole Thanksgiving crowd, in almost the same zero time.
After November 7th, I’ll share how to make your own self-rising flour out of whole wheat flour, for the extra-special real-food folks.
