Weekend so far....

Last night I made the most delicious biscuits....

 Becky's Biscuits

2 cups self-rising flour

Cut in -
1/4 cup Crisco (shortening)

Add -
A dollop of sour cream (about 1/3 cup)

Stir lightly then add enough milk to make a semi-sticky dough. DON'T OVER STIR!

Dump out onto a floured counter and kneed about 5 times; flatten to about 1/2 - inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter.

Bake in a 450*F oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

Our dessert was a biscuit with honey. We received this bottle of honey in a barter of sorts - Garlic for Honey. The Honey is AMAZING as well.

Speaking or barters - Wednesday I will be meeting Tracy from Our Simple Life in "REAL LIFE" to swap a jar of my Chow Chow for a jar of her Rum Apple Butter. We "met" because we connected through Rhonda's blog Down to Earth . So two South Carolinian's are meeting because of a blog out of Australia - small world huh? Should be loads of fun as we are meeting at Zesto's for lunch - good food and a new friendship - AWESOME! THANKS RHONDA!

This morning Scott and I went to the All Local Farmer's Market on Whaley Street in Columbia, SC - just across the Blossom Street bridge from Cayce. We took the camera but were having so much fun and were so enthralled with it all we forgot to take any pictures while there. We will definitely go again - hopefully next Saturday. I did take a photo of our "bootie" that we brought home...
Two types of humanly raised pork sausage; pimento cheese, two types of feta cheese, a mesculan mix, a head of lettuce and a half dozen of ginger snaps. The atmosphere was so much more fun than the local grocery store and the conversations that occurred were wonderful. No one will hardly speak to you in the grocery store. It was just so refreshing talking to the people that actually MADE the product(s) that we were buying. Next time I will take some photo's to share. And if you live in the central part of South Carolina you should attend one Saturday morning.


  1. It seems like you had a really great time ;) :) The market sounds like a blast. we have some awesome farmers markets here in the area. Those biscuits look absolutely delicious. I LOVE biscuits with LOTS of butter and honey :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  2. Those scones(the British and Australian name for them) look delicious! I love the atmosphere of farmers' markets and the food is so much nicer too. How amazing that you and Tracey 'met' through Rhonda's blog! have a great time Wednesday :-)

  3. I have always wanted to go to that farmers market but its such a long drive for me so I will look forward to you telling me all about it!

    Can't wait to meet you for lunch on Wednesday...with apple butter in hand. See you then!

  4. You are certainly right there, Becky. The market is just about a thousand times more fun than the grocery store. I am glad you had fun! Have a great day!
