I meant to take a plate shot with the cheesy bacon mashed potatoes, the homemade horseradish cream, the au jus I made from some consomme I made a few weeks ago and froze, and the broccoli with hollandaise (go figure, my parents don't like asparagus) - but we got busy eating pretty quick, so all I have is a picture of the roast after we raided it. :)

Boy, that looks very tasty, msmofet!

I thought I was going to have enough leftovers of my stew for tomorrow, but Mark had two huge helpings.

I might make chili tomorrow. Do you have a good biscuit or cornbread recipe?

This was my beef stew, done in the crock-pot. I just served bread with it. Salad started things off.

Fried pork chops
Hash brown casserole
Cornbread

My husband was thrilled, his cardiologist not so much.

thank you vb.

baking powder biscuits (the ones i made the other night)

Baking Powder Biscuits

3 c. flour - less 3 TBSP.
3 TBSP. wheat germ*
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
4 TBSP. butter flavored shortening - COLD
2 TBSP. butter - COLD
1 1/4 c. milk (more or less according to flour, and humidity of the day)

Combine dry ingredients. Cut shortening into dry ingredients till you have pea size pieces. add milk a little at a time and stir with fork till dry ingredients are moist. Turn out onto a flour board and kneed several times till it holds together. Pat into a rectangle (or use a round cutter) and cut into squares. Place on ungreased cookie sheet**. Bake at 450˚F for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot with butter.

*I always add the wheat germ which I learned from my mom. It gives the biscuit a nice nutty flavor. If you don't want to use the wheat germ just omit it and add back the 3 Tbsp of flour. Give the wheat germ a try.

**If you like you can baste tops of biscuits with melted butter before going into the oven and then again half way through cooking.
