Biscuit Day

I started making my biscuits once a month and freezing them
way back when I had 4 children at home
It saves time when in a hurry or on days when you just don't want
to cook. And I still make about 50 at a time and freeze.
I place my biscuits on cookie sheets and set them in my freezer to flash freeze them.

Then I place in Ziploc bags and just get out what I need.
This works great for me!

Then just cook as you normally would.
I love it because "Sweet Hunter" can get up on Saturdays
and make homemade biscuits the easy way!

Basic Biscuit Recipe
(I use White Lily Self Rising Flour)
2 C.  self-rising flour
1/4 cup butter or shortening.
 2/3 to 3/4 cups buttermilk

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Measure flour into bowl. Cut in butter or shortening until mixtures resembles coarse crumbs. Blend in enough buttermilk until dough leaves sides of bowl. Knead gently 2 or 3 times on lightly floured surface. Cut or roll into biscuits. (I roll mine)
  Place on pan with biscuits touching.
 Brush tops with melted butter.
 Bake at 500 degrees until brown.

What A Year!

Here is my best friend, Vicki showing my Mom how to crochet.
I have shown this before but this picture has a different meaning now.
Here, my Mom had been very sick. Long story short. Eyelid cancer (scary),
high potassium (very very dangerous), 2 major back surgeries, indescribable
 pain in right hand and debilitating pain in neck.

This is 3 of my grands that went with me to visit Mom one day!

I LOVE this picture. Mom is showing the grands how
the piano works on the inside. So thankful that Mom is doing
much better now. She has some issues with her hand and neck but
I am so thankful that she has come through this hard year.

Little did any of us know that Vicki would be in the hospital with something called
Legionnaires pneumonia. She is a miracle too.

Here Vicki is with her daddy visiting her at home!

This is Vicki about a week or so ago.
Doesn't she look great?
Who would have ever thought back when she was helping mom
crochet, that she would have been through all this.

I was so touched by my grandchildren praying and
loving Vicki with their signs.

I couldn't help but show you these pictures.

This little girl right here is a special little angel
with a heart of gold. Every night when Vicki was
so sick, my family prayed every night at a certain time.
We would text after we prayed. She would always text me and
let me know after she said her prayer.

This is what Vicki and Mom are both having to do right now.
I am just so thankful to have them both in my life.
They both need your prayers.
I am sorry I haven't updated my blog. I was even considering quitting blogging. For some reason I can't make my font bold or large and I am having a hard time loading pictures. But here I am trying again!
Just wanted to update you and let you know I am still here!
