Biscuits.

I score another point! I fixed up the PHP form so it inserts itself into the index page. Succès! Less manual labor for me. I’ll get around to the archiving process eventually. I think I’m slowly just coding WordPress for my own purposes. Oh well, I like the versatility I give myself this way. POWER.

Ben gave me a five minute tutorial on SQL today and pretty much summed up the basics for me. Having him across the hall is definitely one of the better parts of my living situation. Throw in the couch/futon, good music, and amazing people in 107 and I’m pretty much set. We just submitted housing preferences today, and hopefully Tessaly and I will be able to live in 717 Dolores with Bens, Seth, and Lucas next year. Tessaly and I got a really good draw number, but the guys are a little under 300 behind us. Welp, we’ll just cross our fingers.

Tonight, I feel like making biscuits. I have not worked at all today, but I plan to make biscuits. Although… there’s a big frat party tonight, and I’ll probably go just to check it out. Then make biscuits and make sure no one drinks too much. BISCUITS. Here’s the recipe for prosperity…

PRETTY DARN TASTY BISCUITS

(recipe from my sister)(makes 6-8 biscuits)

  1. Grease a baking sheet and heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Mix together well:
    – 1 cup all-purpose flour
    – 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    – 1/4 tsp salt
  3. Then rub in 4 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, until mixture is crumb-y. (For flakier biscuits, leave pea-size chunks of butter intact.)
  4. Mix in any optional ingredients for flavor, like:
    – grated parmesan cheese (<–not my favorite)
    – bacon bits (OMG FANTASTIC)
    – chopped chili peppers
    – rosemary
  5. Then add 3/8 cup milk (just under 1/2 cup) and stir until JUST moistened, and knead until dough JUST holds together.
  6. Roll out and cut biscuits with a floured drinking glass, or break off chunks and pat them into rounds. Or, just smoosh the whole thing into a baking dish and cut it into squares later, like cornbread.
  7. Bake 10-12 minutes. Voila.

These are incredible because you can make them in one bowl, one baking pan, and maybe one knife. And your hands. Also, these come out really well in a toaster oven, which is one of the more fantastic inventions of mankind.

Now I need to procure flour, baking powder, butter, and milk. Later.
