Stephanie asked if I put too much salt in, but I assured her I had followed the recipe exactly. To be honest, I hadn't even really noticed the taste, since I took a bite of a biscuit with each bite of the main dish. When I tasted the biscuit alone, it did indeed taste salty--almost metallic. Then I realized that I hadn't made baking powder biscuits, I had made baking soda biscuits! Yuk! I had already eaten two! I had to lay on my back for a few minutes after dinner while the chemistry experiment in my stomach completed. Luckily it wasn't a repeat of that horrible experience near the end of my mission!
Here are some pictures of our new home in Ames--we will have some more of the interior once Stephanie has had a chance to finish making the window treaments.
