Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

Good Morning!

First of all let me share with you a few events in our day out here in the woods which is on the whole very uneventful. First of all the beautiful sunrise we woke up to yesterday. I was checking my e/mail, etc. when I looked out the window to gaze upon a sky that looked like it was on fire. Now I know what they say, red in the morning, sailors take warning however, our weather ignored the omen and it was a warm but nice day overall.

WTF?

What kind of rat does this?

Next thing, Kenny went out to his workshop/barn/man-cave and came back to the house telling me he had something to show me. He had put out a tray of rat poisoning as they were getting in there and chewing the wires on the phone line, his fan and other things. On top of the box of poison, the rats or something had drug a fairly good size piece of molding over the top of the box along with pieces of glass and torn up paper covering the entire thing as if to warn fellow critters not to touch the stuff. We have some very smart vermin running around here!

And last but not least, as I was coming back from getting the mail something caught my eye that wasn’t there when I moseyed on down to the mailbox, an oak SNAKE! I was never one to hurt a snake but I knew this fellow would eventually get much larger and eventually find it slithery self messing with my chicken coop and stealing our chicken eggs, oh HELL no!!! Husband was unavailable at the time so I came up to the house, grabbed a shovel and took matters into my own hands. Boy that little son-of-a-gun gave me a hard time as I was trying to kill him on a not so solid of a surface but I won out in the long run and he will never bother our eggs, no no no!

All you need is a cup of coffee to start you're day!

Now on with the real reason I’m here, but it is fun to share some of our little happenings! I made these yesterday and we had them with our coffee this morning, husband is hooked for sure not that I’m going to make them very often as he is constantly harping about his weight gain since he quit smoking, ha ha! But here it goes:

Country Living Buttermilk Corn Bread

Topped with blacked peas-chopped onions and a dash of vinegar…

Hey Ya’ll, Kenny here to share a recipe that I found in one of my wife’s older cook books. It’s titled – Country Living Recipes – and was written by Jean Wickstrom Liles. The recipe is by Mrs. N.A. Gilcrease from Corsicana, Texas.

As you all know, I am a big fan of corn bread and thought I would try making this recipe myself.  (Please…hold the applause for later.)

Now don’t get me wrong here…I love my wife’s Country Corn Bread the best. You knew I had to say that. After fixing up this bread I found it to be a little dry but, tasted pretty darn good. It would go great with black-eyed peas or fried fish which is what we enjoyed it with.

O.K. enough of my jabbering…here’s the recipe—>
