My best FOOD invention ever!

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

I was going to title this "my best invention ever," but then I realized that any food I make really can't compare to my kids, so I had to change it.

That said, I need to warn you... I'm a bread addict. Any kind, any temp, any anything, I love bread. So, the other day, I was craving biscuits. I don't know why, but there you have it. I know biscuits are horrible, awful things full of fat and calories, and... but I didn't care. I wanted 'em.

I've been baking yeast breads, batter breads, scones etc. for years, so I figured, I can make low cal biscuits if I try!!! I tried. I think I succeeded. I looked at a bunch of my old fatty biscuit recipes, and tried to figure out how to make them better for me. I combined a ton of recipes, and ditched half of the butter and subbed in lowfat feta cheese and lowfat cream cheese. I used fatfree milk and lemon juice instead of buttermilk. I have done something amazing. I can't stop eating these. They don't even need a slather of anything. They just require teeth.

I don't usually post recipes on my blog, because I don't know if other people will like what I do. But I posted these suckers, because nom nom nom (sorry, eating one now).

If you are a biscuit hog like me, try them. Tell me your thoughts. They were fast, delicious, and I want to share my joy. recipes.sparkpeople.com/

In keeping with my "non scale" happiness journaling:

1) Aunt Flo came to visit today and I was caught unaware. Normally, not something to be happy about, but I'd normally know because of extreme bloating. I may be bloated, but I fit into my clothes like I wasn't. YAY!

2) I carried all my teaching crapola up and down the stairs yesterday instead of taking the elevator. I have over 60 pounds of tech/paper stuff I carry, so the fact that I even tried this makes me giggle a bit. I not only tried, I did it!

3) I ate awesome biscuits with lunch, and I didn't feel guilty. emoticon

    Now to take those biscuits and put them on the top of a Chicken Pot Pie. Oh, that's tasty right there.

    I used to teach Biology in NY. I keep hoping I'll be able to teach again, but there are very few jobs in the area.

    Got to try those some day. Although I suspect they ain't nothing like digestives or hobnobs. Or anything that I associate with the word biscuits. :)

    I can't wait to try these. I am such a bread addict. I baked and ate half a loaf of my low cal italian bread every other day.. for a couple of years. It's no wonder I'm on a diet. ;)

    I am a bread addict too! I can't seem to ever get enough carbs, however terrible it is! I'm gluten intolerant which makes it a little trickier, but I've got my ways (GF english muffins - the BEST!) Anyway, I love your sense of humor and awesome attitude! Love what YDAVIS said: "CRAZY stuff is going on"... isn't it awesome!? :)

    Hahaha this post made me laugh. Next time you should bike with your 60 lbs of stuff! A teacher's load is never light...

    Isn't it weird to have clothes that fit - no exceptions!?!?! CRAZY stuff going on :)
