One day I asked myself this probing question. Are there any jokes about biscuits? I consulted by encyclogoogle and found out, yes siree Bob there are biscuit jokes. However in the considered opinion of my funny bone, none of the jokes I found were even remotely humorous. I remind you of my enjoyment of even lame humor.
So dear Readers feel free to pass on any biscuit jokes you may know or even ones you cleverly compose that are actually funny. And no this is not a contest where the winning entry receives a new IPad. I might reconsider such a contest after I get an IPad first. After all I am part of the ME first culture. Good Golly I sincerely hope I typed that as a tongue in cheek observation.
Biscuits definitely deserve a listing in the Americana Comfort Food cookbook. In the past the ability to bake a mighty fine biscuit was a worthy entry on a yearning bride’s to be resume. Now assuming the household is not on a no carbs eating plan—yikes that makes me shudder—kudos are given for merely turning the oven on to bake biscuits premade by the famous Pillsbury Dough Boy. Taking a second look at Pillsbury’s poster child’s body type does support the philosophy of a no carb diet. Mmmm, time to put my blinders on.
Every time I see a recipe utilizing yeast, I quickly flip the page. Oh no a yeast recipe, I squeal, waaaaaaay too much time and trouble. Yet when I was a teenager I loved making yeast dough recipes. Here I was in the previous paragraph poking fun at today’s biscuit maker. What happened? Too busy, I say, taking the low road with a traditional over used excuse. Yet I was busy buzzy teen. Upon reflection I think multi-tasking swallowed me up and shut out the light of joy of mindfully doing a single task—–and silencing the inner grim taskmaster of do do do and do it fast and simultaneously.
Baking Biscuits from Heaven is a wonderful transitional step, because it’s a quick yeast recipe. The biscuit is firm, so you can butter it, slather it with jam and it won’t end up a pile of crumbs on the plate. In addition they can be used as shortcakes with strawberries and whipped cream, soaking up the juice without becoming soggy.
Which Wild Goose Tea to drink with the biscuit would depend on how you prepared them for entry into your mouth. For example if you were using peach jam, then Wild Goose Ginger Peach Green Tea would be perfect. With strawberry shortcake, an iced tea using Wild Goose Grandma’s Garden Green Tea, which has flecks of strawberry in the blend. Or if you are having a variety of jams or feel like a basic go with everything tea, then let me suggest Wild Goose Sencha Green Tea.
