When I was very young, it was a struggle to get me to eat. (Alas, that is no longer the case.) I refused to eat meat, or anything white. I was not fond of vegetables either.
I liked fruit and cheese, though. And sweets.
Which is why I like these three entries in Biscuit Baking Mix Day, which is officially tomorrow.
Christine of Christine Cooks made a fabulous down-home Berry Cobbler. Her photos are terrific, too, so you can almost literally watch it being made.
Christine was one of my first blogger friends who encouraged me when I was starting out. She ranks pretty high on my list. I'm delighted she is participating.
A newer blogger friend is Charles at BiCoastal Cook who made one of my all-time favorites: Cheesy-Garlic Biscuits, the kind Red Lobster serves. I like Charles, too.
I like Red Lobster. I'm not ashamed to admit it. Some chains do what they do fairly well and this appears to be the case with Red Lobster.
My husband and I eat there when we are in a hurry and want consistent quality, usually at lunchtime and usually when we are driving to Green Bay to shop at Woodman's, a large, employee-owned supermarket where Erika from Tummy Treasure also shops. One of these days I'm going to follow her home, because she's always got something tasty on hand, including today's Cherry Swirl Coffee Cake, just the kind of thing I like with a big glass of cold milk. Nice lady, that Erika. That's her photo above, used with permission.
(By the way, to be fair, I should say that my husband and I also eat at locally owned restaurants, too, both upmarket and downscale. I've written a food column for three years, and I know the owners and often the chefs. They are friends and good people.)
Not being a snob is what Biscuit Baking Mix Day is all about. Not ridiculing people who may not be as sophisticated as you are. Not bashing other blogs or bloggers. You get the message.
There's a lot to be said for being, well, being nice.
Thanks to everyone who is participating. You restore my faith.
There's more to come tomorrow or in a later post. Who knows what today will bring?
