This week marks the 1 year anniversary for us living in the south! I thought I would share a little of what I have learned and LOVE about the Southern Culture:
*People go to church every Sunday and pray over every meal…even in a restaurant.
*You always finish with a “mam” or “sir” when you answer a question–happily my boys are starting to pick this up!
*No matter how old you are, parents are always referred to as”Mama” and “Daddy” and children are always “baby” to their parents or anyone for that matter.
*And Southerners LOVE a good biscuit…even all the fast food joints have them on the menu !
And, with that in mind, let me introduce you to a wonderful biscuit recipe from my friend Sheri–not a southerner, but a fabulous cook:)
- 4 cups flour
- 2 TBs. baking powder
- 1½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- ½ tsp soda
- ½ cup butter
- 16oz sour cream
- 3-5 tsp water
- Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter until there are small well blended pieces. Add sour cream and water, mix well. Knead and roll out to 1 inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter. Freeze individually on a cookie sheet. When frozen solid, place in a freezer bag to store. When ready to use, place frozen biscuits on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 425 for 15=17 minutes or until top is golden. makes 16-20.
