Stick to Microwaving

So for some reason this morning I decided I wanted nice hot biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Looking back, I should have just gone to IHOP.

I started out well. I managed to get the ingredients into the bowl, stirred, and turned out onto a floured surface to roll out the dough and cut out the biscuits. No sweat, things are going well. The oven is preheating, the pan greased and ready. I put my beautiful little circles of dough in the pan, pop it into the oven, and set the timer. Twelve minutes later I had this:

Yes, I had something usually only created by Elly Mae Clampett. I considered using them for drink coasters, then thought it wouldn't be too bad if I covered them in butter and honey. Wrong. There's not enough sticky sweet honey in the world to make them palatable. I think I'll take them to the lake and use them as skipping stones, but with my luck I'll injure wildlife.

The Drought is (Almost) Over

Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's been a while. I get it. But I just got my internet connection back at home after two months and I'm just still beat from the moving, repairing, cleaning, planning, mowing, watering, etc... Plus work is kicking my ass. Too many hours, too many tasks, not enough sleep. Here's hoping that once I get rested up I can get this blog back on track. I've been taking pictures of the before and after projects around the house, so be on the lookout for those!

It's supposed to storm like mad this afternoon and I am sooo looking forward to napping through it!
