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:

Hello again everyone as I have been very lax in the kitchen area of late. But I do have some things up my sleeve for the near future and I just wanted to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! It’s gonna be a little quiet here tomorrow, just Husband, daughter and myself. Kenny’s daughter and family were gonna come down from up north and that got cancelled. One granddaughter and her family will be going to her hubby’s family this year and our other granddaughter is on the verge of having her second son, Niklaus who at least will be joining us for the Christmas holiday!

tomato soup cookies 003

Some time ago I posted our family’s Tomato Soup Cake that my grandma and mom made every year for Thanksgiving. Follow the same recipe for the cookies by going to the link I provided on tomato soup cake. The only difference here is that you make them by dropping a tablespoonful onto a greased cookie sheet and bake them in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. As you can see by the picture, I baked some to the point I thought they were done enough and the second batch a little longer and they came out a little darker. The darker, more well done cookies were the choice of us all, but you can decide for yourself according to your preference. Our choice was based on the crunchiness of the cookie while they still retained their chewiness. I had been wanting to try this for quite some time now and my sister who also makes this cake every year, thought it was a great idea also; can’t wait to tell her tomorrow when we talk……………..  Well again, Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends out there and good vittles are right around the corner, YEAH, my kind of holiday!!!!
