This post was originally posted in January 2011. I did not have a picture of the biscuits on this post. So I’m reposting this blog with a picture.
I made these for our family’s New Year’s Dinner. Everyone loved them because they are tasty. Tonight I was asked to bring the bread for our Sunday dinner. I was torn between making Easy Rolls, breadmachine rolls (haven’t posted this yet), or the buttermilk biscuits. I let the Wee One and Imaginative One be the deciding factor. They told me they wanted the biscuits. So that’s what we are having.
One of my favorite recipes during the past few weeks was the sausage, onions, and peppers made in the pressure cooker. I use sausage from Fresh Thyme which is a local grocery store. I absolutely love that place.
Anyway, I got basil and garlic pork sausage once again. We used that flavor last time, also. I put instant rice on the menu, but I may change it to pasta. Since we used the sauce from the last time over pasta later in the week, I think I may have it over pasta this time. Yum!
I’m also going to use frozen peppers and onions instead of cutting them up. It should make it easier tomorrow tonight when I get home.
For Sunday supper, we had porcupine balls with orange gravy. It’s one of my husband’s favorite meals that his mom cooks for him. This was the first time I’d made it for him and his mom. It must have been good because they both went for seconds. I’ll be sharing the recipe in a few weeks.
Since we had a lot of the porcupine balls left over, that is what we had for supper on Monday night. I also made a pressure cooker mac and cheese (recipe coming later). So we had a smorgasbord of leftovers. The Imaginative One had a leftover pancake from our breakfast out on Sunday morning.
The other day I went to an event. They served frozen lasagna. It made me crave homemade lasagna, so I decided to make some. I asked Hubby to get me the ingredients for my lasagna. Rather than using store-bought sauce, I decided to use myspaghetti sauce recipe. I adapted the recipe for the pressure cooker.
The kitchen smelled amazing as it cooked! This is an easy recipe to put together. If you don’t want to use the pressure cooker, click on the link to the original recipe.
Making your own spice blends is so easy. You can customize the number of spices. Hubby doesn’t like cumin, so I put a trace amount in my taco seasoning. He enjoys it when I make tacos because he knows it’s customized to his liking. I haven’t bought taco seasoning in years.
Here are some of the spice blends I’ve shared over the years.
Last week I posted a menu for the next two weeks. We did not have a very successful week, even though I had a list of meals posted. I was sick for most of the week. In fact, I was off of work from Friday until Thursday, minus the weekend. Tuesday was a snow day, and Wednesday was a below-zero temperature day. Ohio has below-zero temperature days a few times during the year. We are so not used to temperatures getting that cold, so we call off of school or have a delay.
