This afternoon I went out to look at some houses with Erika and Jeremy and Noah. When we got home, it was cold, breezy and dinner time. Greg pulled up just after we did, and I had enough of the Beef Barley Soup for one more go round. I put it on to heat and made the Red Lobster Cheese and Garlic Biscuits to go with.
The soup was even better second go round, and the biscuits were heavenly. If you like Red Lobster biscuits, you will love these.
2 Cups Bisquik
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tsp garlic powder
Mix first three ingredients until dough forms. Scoop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake in 450 degree oven for 8-10 min. Don't let them become over brown. For my oven, 8 minutes is perfect. While in oven, melt butter, and stir in garlic. When biscuits come out of oven, brush melted butter and garlic onto biscuit tops. Enjoy!
For the LIFE of me, I cannot figure out why I keep getting these shadows on my pictures. Mainly when taking them in the kitchen under direct lighting. I have tried changing the angle I shoot, and every which way, but still, I get shadows!!! I have tried everything, and I can't seem to escape it! Greg thought it might be my camera strap hanging down, but it isn't that. Any ideas anyone?
Regarding recipes...I am afraid they will be changing up a bit now. I am biting the bullet and heading myself back to Weight Watchers tomorrow. I remember when I lost all that weight a few years back, I thought I would lose the joy in cooking. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that I rather enjoyed the challenge of making our favorite foods more healthy and figure friendly. I got out of my good habits, and realize that I will forever have to watch my weight, so this seems to be the best way to keep it off. I love the program, and it works. I have also been back to the park early in the morning, 3 days a week for brisk walking, and it sure feels good. So start looking for some of my favorite lo fat, healthy recipes from now on. And, maybe an occasional blast from the past too. You gotta live, right?
