In order to recover, I have had to stop doing....everything! I'm not very good at sitting still, actually, I have had to stand, a lot, to get any relief at all. I am so much better, praise God, but I am continuing to limit my physical activity for a while longer. Today, I was able to get some light housework done. (no lifting) Number One has been a great helpmate. He has always called himself the "lifter and toter", he has really lived up to this name lately.
I got hungry for some biscuits today, so I whipped up these Cheddar Cheese Biscuits for dinner along with some meatloaf (that I had frozen), mashed potatoes and green beans. Simple enough and not too time consuming considering my physical limitations right now. They were yummy! The more cheese the better of course!
|I gave the recipe my own little twist by adding garlic powder and parsley.|
1 cup All flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
3 tbs Lard, Butter or Crisco (Lard is my choice)
Cut with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles cornmeal.
Add: 1 to 1 1/2 cups of Shredded Cheese, 1/2 tsp Garlic powder and 1 tbs Parsley
Add: 1/2 cup Milk
Mix until dough is formed. (The less mixing, the better) Press out until dough is 1 inch thick. Cut out biscuits. Dip both sides into melted butter, place in pan and bake @ 450* until brown.
For Breakfast Biscuits, I omit the parsley and garlic. Double the recipe if you are feeding a crowd. Enjoy.....
