I am so excited because I finished my last final of the semester yesterday! This means that I have completed 87% of the courses required to earn an associates degree in accounting. I will finish up with 3 classes in the fall, and that’s it. I have wanted to work in accounting since I was in my teens, but life happened and I have been a stay-at-home mom for the last 25 years. It is has been rewarding to raise my kids, but going back to work in a field I will like is also going to be rewarding. Earning a degree, even if it is only an associate’s, is also an accomplishment for me that I will be very proud of.
Today’s recipe is for buttermilk biscuits. I got this recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. It is very simple and fast. I really like the texture of homemade biscuits as opposed to the kind you can buy in a tube. Those work in a pinch, but it is really simple to make your own. When it comes to baking it doesn’t really take that much extra time to gather and mix the ingredients.
These would be great with butter and/or your favorite jam. They would also be great smothered with sausage gravy, there is a great recipe for that here.
These are the ingredients needed.
