I am envious. I fancy myself a better than average cook and have cooked in some decent places but I can not make a biscuit to save my life. I just go by Bojangles or Hardees and get a bunch of plain biscuits if I feel the need to have them.

One trick is to not beat up the dough too much. Have to work it absolutely as LITTLE as possible.

While doing that, I preheat the oven to 450, with the cast iron skillet, and about 1/5 stick of butter (real ****, not processed oil). I pat out the dough about an inch and a half thick, cut it with a coffee cup. Then when the oven and skillet are done heating, I swirl the butter around to coat the skillet real good, then I pour the excess into the coffee cup. I arrange the biscuits in the skillet, and brush the excess butter over the tops.

Then I knock the heat down to about 400 for a bit, until they rise and start to look firm, then kick it back up to 450 until lightly browned on top.

Oh, I use an 8" skillet.

We're having pork too but chops. I made a balsamic reduction with shallots. Yummy....imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1390525734.184587.jpg

I had some pasta with olive oil and butter. Sprinkled with a few secret spices.
Chocolate pudding and a couple of Honey Bells.

Dammit! Are you getting them from Cushman's? And why can't we get these in the stores? I'm too cheap to pay to have them shipped.

Yes, Cushmans. I used to live near their WPB store for years. I could just go in and get what I wanted every few days.
I miss the fresh fruits and vegetables I'd get in Fl.

Cushmans was bought out (at least their mail order business) by Harry and David, a few years ago. At first I kept getting sub quality oranges but after numerous complaints and replacements, they seem to have put me on the PITA list and I've been getting good ones again.
And I order when they offer free shipping.
