Biscuits, Baby!

Today I decided to make some biscuits to go along with our crock-pot dinner. I pulled out ol' Betty, looked up biscuits, and found a simple recipe for plain baking power biscuits. They weren't too difficult--the only problem is that I rolled them too thin, so there were a lot and they cooked too fast and got too done. All things considered, they weren't too bad--until we tasted them!

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.

This reminds me of the time my husband made cookies with salt in place of sugar. :( At least your mess-up was slightly edible. lol.

Are you guys drinking bottled water? Has the flooding affected you? I just read about it on the news.
