Sweet Potato Biscuits
Yes, yes it's true - I actually baked something. I was perusing an old copy of Women's Day and came across a recipe for sweet potato biscuits. I thought it might be a good way to get some Vitamin A into Jackson.
Okay, yes, I had to call my mom first to ask "How do you make a mashed potato?" and then "What does it mean to 'knead' it 12 times??" and when the recipe said to roll it to 1/2" and cut into rounds, I thought it meant to literally roll it, like a long tube or something and then slice circles out of it, like with those prepared rolls of cookie dough.
It took me a couple of minutes of struggling with the not-quite-sticking-together dough before it hit me that it meant to roll it out with a rolling pin(!). Thank goodness I'd bought my first rolling pin just last night! Rather fortuitous, eh? And they are shaped like flowers because that's the closest I could come to a circle cookie cutter. But I like the flowers. Much more interesting than boring old circles!
And here's the absolute truth: not only did I enjoy the process, but they taste good. I've already had two while the boys are napping.
Hooray for me and my domestic endeavor! Will there be more to come? Stay tuned and find out.
