A good day begins with…….

Along with Burt Shavitz, I am of the humble conviction that a good day is when I do not have anywhere to go and no one shows up at the gate.  Additionally, there are things that add to the blessings of each day.  So, where to begin?

After Vigils and Lauds, then………

It should be noted that these are baked in a cast iron skillet.

They are made in the ‘old way.’

Oven at 450 degree F…then

In a bowl put two cups of flour, a teaspoon of salt, half teaspoon of soda, and a tablespoon of baking powder.  Mix in a quarter cup of lard (yes, LARD), then a cup of buttermilk.  Once it is all mixed into a mass, place it in a well seasoned skillet or pan and spread it around somewhat even.  Used a cup or cutter in the center, then a knife for the division of the biscuits.

Place the skillet with dough in the pre-heated oven for 15 – 20 minutes, but usually until the tops are golden brown.  Your ready for breakfast.

Be well.
