i don't know why but i just can't make biscuits. every once in a while i'll give it a try but the recipe doesn't matter, they always come out hard. i can't make pancakes either. don't get me wrong i can make beautiful picturesque pancakes, just don't eat them, they are more cake than they are pancake, typically about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick - i kid you not.
on one of our beach trips last year, a friend made biscuits & gravy for one of our group breakfasts. i was there when she made the biscuits & in doing so she gave her 6 year old daughter a lesson (i took lots of mental notes). since then i've joked w/B that i'm gonna invite the 6 year old over to make biscuits because i'm sure she'd do a better job than me.
the past 2 weekends i've made biscuits. last week's were really bad, this week's were a slight improvement. i don't know if prisoners would eat them. maybe they wouldn't be so bad if i made gravy to put over them, but then again my gravy isn't that good either.
