Enjoying the Discoveries of Living a Simple and Frugal Life
Buttermilk, Harvest, & Powdered Sugar
What a full month it has been… I have not even had time to sit down and write! So many good memories were made, family visits, places traveled, baked goods in full swing, and now I sit in my reading chair contemplating this season in the middle of an ice storm.
I had about a half gallon of milk going sour in our refrigerator even though the expiration date is still two weeks out! So I searched Pinterest all day looking for fun and easy recipes that require a lot, and I mean a lot of sour milk. They were new recipes minus the sour milk coffee cake, which of course always turns out perfectly. The buttermilk biscuits were monstrous and about as dense as a cinderblock but oh so delicious. The buttermilk pancakes were nothing to write about, but there was plenty left to freeze for quick breakfasts.
AJ came in around noon from the wood shop and saw the fiasco taking place in our kitchen and said, “Woah! It’s not even Thanksgiving yet!” Using the back of my hand to wipe away flour from my forehead I replied with, “Yep, we’re doomed.”
