I’m trying to be more productive. The pastor in Australia we watch is doing a series on Nehemiah, where the wall around Jerusalem gets rebuilt For an application now, he suggested we all make 5 new goals. That’s advice I needed as I have not thought about goals since this virus changed everything.
So today, I’ve been up several hours. I did some Bible reading and an exercise video. (Those are 2 of my daily goals)
Then I looked on my to do list and thought this was a perfect time to start some freezer biscuits.
I chose a recipe that used half and half, also known as light cream, because I had 2 jugs of this cream that needs to be used.
I quadrupled the recipe and made the first batch plain.

I added our diced jalapeños and sharp white cheddar to the second batch.
They are all in the freezer, and when frozen, I will bag them up and bake as needed. (I freeze them first on sheets and not touching so they don’t freeze together in one big lump.)
I baked a few of the jalapeño cheese ones and they are delicious!
In my last post, I showed the chickens I cooked for taco meat.
The broth from cooking them in the crockpot had been chilling in the fridge.
I took the fat off the top and put the broth in containers to freezer for future recipes,
It is really nice broth with a gelatin consistency and should be very good when I cook with it.
When I was growing up, everyone’s kitchen had a can with a strainer to save bacon grease for future cooking. It was thrifty and Southern cooks like that bacon flavor in so many things.
When I saw this ad for a local farm store, I was so surprised!
They are selling little tubs of bacon grease for $7.99!
The looks to be the size of a small tub of margarine.
I don’t cook with bacon grease but if I did, I would not buy it ready made. It is a free byproduct anytime bacon is cooked.
And here’s a cartoon that made me laugh
Have a good day everyone
