Updated for National Biscuit Day!
Biscuits? I know you’re thinking, what do biscuits have to do with the theme of Down Home Thoughts and wisdom passed along from my Grandmother. Well relax for minute or two and I’ll try to explain. My grandmother made THE BEST biscuits ever. I’ve found a few places that come close, but none that get it the way she did. She never used a recipe. It was some flour sifted out on the counter, a pinch of salt, some baking powder and baking soda and some fresh buttermilk. Mix it all up, put it in a greased skillet and pop it in a hot oven. A few minutes later, mouth-watering, hot steamy goodness is ready to melt the freshly made butter and have slathered on some fresh made jam, honey or molasses. Many really good chats about how school was going and what subjects did I like and how was vacation were had over biscuits. Grandma knew that no one listens very well on an empty stomach. Many times I saw Grandma bake biscuits just for company that dropped by to chat. The biscuits always disappeared quickly and the conversation always seemed a bit better. Grandma knew the power of biscuits.
