Weekend so far....
2 cups self-rising flour
Cut in -
1/4 cup Crisco (shortening)
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...
