My feet are sweating.*

Jimothy and I decided a few weeks ago that we would attempt to make the best biscuitos ever. We both have a love of buttermilk biscuits, which is why when we catch up with each other it's usually over breakfast. I like that Cracker Barrel gives us endless buttermilk biscuits...but let's be honest, those aren't the best biscuits I've ever had. I like Hardee's (if they are made right) and the ones from Boychik's (that's in Innsbrook for Richmonders).

We had been talking about doing this for a while, we were even going to do it last weekend but we both forgot. So this past Saturday we buckled down and got to business.




I went to the store to get buttermilk and stood in front of the vast display of all types of half & half, milk, and whipping cream but I couldn't seem to find the buttermilk. Then I heard a voice say, "there it is, buttermilk." Followed by a finger which pointed me in the right direction. How...? But then I realized that the man and woman standing next to me were also in pursuit of buttermilk, so as soon as she grabbed some I went in after and told them I was glad they were there, I was standing there unable to find it. As I left I said, "Thank you".


Jimothy and I decided to try two recipes and compare. He made one, I made the other. We cut them into shapes...




They were okay. They weren't the best, but they weren't the worst either. We have some ideas for improvements.

You can't be perfect with biscuitos if you want to use all the dough. So this little guy turned out funky looking and less perfect than his brothers...but I'm sure he still tasted the same.




I took the leftovers to Ben and Jo's house and my nephews went crazy, "Biscuits! Biscuits! Biscuits!" I thought they would be impressed with the dinosaur shaped ones, but they went straight for the round ones. I had no idea that we shared the love of biscuits - no wonder I think they (the kids) are so awesome.

Dino biscuits? I am convinced they had to taste better because of their awesome-ness.

Vanessa - I thought they tasted better, but I could have been mentally fooled :)
