I’m a biscuit Girl. Always have been. If I had to choose between sliced bread, rolls, croissants or a crispy, flaky biscuit I’m always on the side of the last. I grew up on having quick and simple biscuits like these a couple of times a week sometimes. These oat biscuits are a little more healthy in the long run than Mom’s but just as easy to make and just as tasty with a bowl of soup, a salad, or just slathered with jam.
The biscuits my Mom always made us were one of the first things I attempted to re-create when I was out on my own. When I first had to figure out how to eat what I was used to eating without spending any of my preciously vulnerable weekly income. I did have one week in my sophomore year when I knew on Sunday that I had $20 to live on until Friday. I decided in my ignorance and youth to buy just Diet Pepsi of all things, to get me through. I survived that week. But I sure would have been better off if I’d had a few of these biscuits to soak up all the soda in my gut……
I think back to that time in my life when I thought nothing of driving from Central North Carolina up to D. C., late at night after exams, with no cell phone (they didn’t exist) and just exactly enough change in the car for the Richmond toll booths to get home. What was I thinking? Now, I walk to the store down the street and have to take a drink, my cell, some cash of course, and a credit card with an open to buy greater than what my first house cost me. Times change. But biscuits, biscuits stay the same and just keep on givin’ I’m a biscuit Girl cause that’s how I was raised I guess. Plain and simple.
Enjoy, if you’re a biscuit Girl that is.
