Old Fashioned Cat Head Biscuits & Cat Naps!!!

Standard

Today Millie and I made a little trip over to mema’s kitchen…boy did we have fun with our cooking lesson.  My favorite memories of living with my grandmother were sewing, cooking, attending church Sunday morning & night and each wednesday for choir practice!  Yes, for those of you who did not know this, I was in the choir at mema’s little ol country church!  Oh how I truly miss the good ol days!!!  Anyhow, I have always wanted to learn how to make her biscuits, and today I finally learned.  I have wanted to make them many a time with country ham or fried steak & gravy so many times and not known how.  It just wasn’t the kind of thing I could just call her up on and get over the phone.  It is a skill that takes practice and lots of experience! Seeing her prepare them in person was a memory I will have forever.  I ate 2 of them standing in her kitchen afterwards with 2 pieces of country ham for a taste sampling. MMMM were they good. Here are some pictures from our time in MAWS kitchen!!  I told her I was going to get her a cooking show on the food network!  She just laughed and said she was too camera shy for that sort of thing!  🙂
