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:

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

Hot cup of coffee and a newspaper and Kenny is happy!!

Let me start today by sharing what happened last Friday. We had a surprise visit from our granddaughter Chey and our two handsome great-grandsons. Ulric is getting taller and just oozes with personality. He got to go out with Pappy and see the chickens, played with my cabinet knobs in the kitchen which are bears and mooses and then like all kids, had to open all my cabinets to see what he could get into…. Niklaus is also gaining in size and Gram and Pappy got to hold him and make him laugh his heart out. Both boys just warm our hearts and love the way Chey and Eric are raising them!

Now onto these lighter than air pancakes. I remember my mom making these when I was a kid and at sometime she decided it was easier to buy premixed pancakes that you just added liquid to. Although they were more convenient and still tasty, they just didn’t have the same appeal. As we love everything that we can make from scratch, I decided to go back to these as I have been making waffles from scratch for years now. Let me tell you, I forgot how light and fluffy they really were and I am now being threatened by Husband to never ever make any other kind again. I took three pancakes and asked myself, “What am I thinking?” only to take an empty plate to the kitchen sink. I also paired them up with our Syrup Infused Pork Balls that I posted back in September and to repeat myself, plate clean enough I could almost put it back in the cabinet, ha ha!!!!!

Hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day! Kenny and I enjoyed these for breakfast and then gorged ourselves with a big old fat juicy burger for dinner as he is taking me out this weekend to my favorite steak house!!!!! Enjoy……….
