Sunday biscuits and coffee grinder mystery solved! — 41 Comments

  1. You could do what’s done in bakeries with that little piece of dough. Cut it , ( make a rope ) place on the outside edge of your other biscuits and bake. You’ve created more “inside” biscuits. (My favorite.) My mom used Pioneer also. She couldn’t handle the dough though. We had “Drop” biscuits.

  2. Sam’s used to have the BEST biscuit mix. It was Betty Crocker brand in a big yellow box. It was discontinued for some odd reason and replaced with a Gold Medal brand mix. It’s good, but not as good as the Betty Crocker was. Valerie is on a biscuit kick lately. “Big Yummy Biscuits” is what she wants for breakfast daily!

  3. What happened to Bisquick or Jiffy? I love Grands too.

    Bought some blackberry fusion. Read a hot pepper jelly recipe that may need investigating.

    Alright make Termite write up the whole episode from his side before you ball peen his fingers.

  4. Mmmm! Wish I could’ve stopped by for some fresh out the oven. You did a great job, much better than I could!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment the other day. So sweet of you!

  5. Looks yummy! I have some frozen, cooked sausage patties in the freezer. Just need some fresh biscuits and a few minutes in a microwave for the sausage.
    Sausage, jelly/preserves and hot biscuits! Good for any meal.

    Poor Termite. The boy is good if he can be just awakened and still think on his toes.

  6. I love all the theories. They were fun and creative and some of you folks are crazier than I it seems! But after reading them all, it looks like 3 of them name Termite as the culprit. And 2 of these have him grinding something up as a topping. But the one I like the most, and comes closest to how this actually went down is . . . . . Sweet Magnolia!!! Congratulations, Deb. Please jet me an email with your mailing address and your French Press coffee pot will go out on Monday!

    If you haven’t read her theory, I’ll post it here:

    A hungry young man enters a spic-n-span kitchen in search for a bite to eat….shrugging his shoulders mumbles an audible “awww shucks”, everything has been tucked away nice & neat. Knowing the Captain is home, he dares not drag out the pot’s & pan’s…..The young Termite spies a loaf of bread and a jar of fig prererves….awww that sounded pretty good, but…how bout a touch of peanut butter….looking around realizing Peter Pan has flown the coup. But wait…The Captain has left a 1/2 filled can of Mr. Peanuts cocktail peanuts on the counter…if only there was a way to …….ah ha! Mom’s coffee grinder…The clever lad pours in peanuts and turns it on…..”brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhh…..” smiling at his brilliance his face freezes when he hears a sudden change in tempo coming from the Krups. Then suddenly a whiff of overheated plastic mixed with coffee o’ peanuts fills his nostrils….his heart races…oh noooo, what to do. The anticipation fills the kitchen, quickly the young lad unplugs the grinder, races around the kitchen realizing he must dispose of this now regrettable venture. He rushes to empty the partially ground peanuts and valiantly tries to wash out the grinder….who knew peanut butter could be so greasy???? Fervently washing and rinsing while looking over his shoulder for signs of being discovered, the lad rinses for the last time, laying the now defunct krups on the counter to dry. No longer hungry, the lad quickly jumps into bed, covers his head along with his sins and finds safety in a young mans dreams of duck hunting, fishing & frog gigging on the bayou……..Yep, it was termite, sorry hon, didn’t mean to rat you out, well, yes I did….I too must get to the bottom of things before they drive me crazy…(& the trip is getting shorter by the day). Let us know the culprit & cause….lol

  7. Well, he tried to be inventive and pretty much succeeded. Never would have thought to grind up cheese crackers to put on my popcorn. I usually just grab the bottle of parmesan and sprinkle it good. The cheesy popcorn sounds good but, I would have preferred the ice cream w/ground up chocolate chips.

    Wonder how the next batch of coffee would have tasted if the grinder hadn’t died? LOL!

    When you have those little left over dough pieces, roll them into a stick shape, dredge them in a bit more flour, lay on a piece of paper towel or wax paper and freeze. Then, pop them into a baggie in the freezer and when you are ready for some dumplings, just break the frozen sticks into smaller portions and drop into the stock pot.

  8. OK Termite this one’s for you. Back in the olden days we hauled drinking water in stone jars and glass carboys and such. If they started getting that dead fish smell we put dry pea gravel in and shook them up. Followed by coffee beans then water. So next time… (after your finger nails grow back)
    just grind a few beans in the grinder. It will clean it up big time and no water.

    PS microwave popcorn is toxic. Eat the crackers.

  9. See I told you it was “someone” lol. And that’s just genius, his use of a snack cracker in place of a cheese product. You have to give him some credit for not putting actual cheese in the grinder!

    • At first, when he said he wanted cheese on his popcorn, I thought he had tried to grate cheddar cheese in it. I do think he had seen a Magic Bullet ad that night and it gave him some wild ideas!!!

      • Those Magic Bullets are on sale this week at one of the stores around here. You might need to invest in a set for you and Termite. They are supposed to grind coffee too.^-^

          • He would love it. My mom who is 80, bought her one last fall. She uses it to make smoothies, bread crumbs, chop/dice vegies that she has problems doing now, etc. She loves it. Said it comes in handy for her daily salads and some of the soups and salsas she cans. She got one with the tall glasses and the small ones.

              • Why not?? If you have a Big Lotts, they are a lot cheaper there. I have considered one for my own use but, I am very limited on counter space and if it isn’t easy to get to, I forget about it. Like my small chopper. I forget I have it.

                You can always add a box of cheese nips and pop corn with it. He would have a blast.

  10. Funny you should mention the Magic Bullet. I was going to suggest that very item as a possible replacement. I saw one advertised in yesterday’s sale brochures. I think it was a Target ad. I’d check for you, but we hauled all the paper off to the recycle bin this morning.

      • Awww, buy the kid a Magic Bullet and let him at it! Maybe one of us will finally become a restaurateur! I mean, you let me make my own birthday cake the year I turned seven, right? (Or was it eight?)

  11. Termite needs some good old fashioned Indian commodity cheese, lucky for him I know someone who works at a tribal commodity program (ME). Now, how do I get it there? Any suggestions? Wonder if I could get away with delivering it in person and saying I had to go do a home visit? LOL

      • Wow, I haven’t had the commodity cheese in years!! We used to get it when I was a kid and we would spend our long weekends and vacations in OK. We would be on the reservation visiting family and friends and would always come home with some of the cheese and the powdered eggs. I always loved those.

      • I ate many a “government cheese” sandwich as a kid! (I have always loved cheese!) I think we even have me on video having one, don’t we? Man, the memories this blog brings to the surface! 🙂

  12. Free gov’t cheese??? I know people that have freezers full I think.

    Oh no…. I may be on self imposed exile till I get back.

  13. I don’t know if I’m buying this whole cheese cracker story. I still think it was Butch and Ti-Du trying to sober up after a night on the town. A dog will do anything for his boy and a boy will do anything for his dog. Way to take the rap Termite. Dogs around the world are howling your praises.

  14. wow, thanks BW, I was just as curious as everyone else. Nice to know the cause….& yes, I have a son very close to Termites age….every time I enter my home after a long days work, I start scanning the rooms, sniffing the air, counting the dogs, making sure all doors and windows are still know, the normal stuff. You son is very inventive, Im still laughing and amazed.
    For the left over biscuit dough (and pie crust dough) I usually flatten it further, sprinkle it with sugar and bake it as sweet snacks, my grandmother always did this and we all loved the treats.

    • Okay, Deb, please email me your address! Did you read the tutorial on how to use the French Press? Are you a coffee drinker? If not, I’ll substitute something else if you would like!

  15. I think Termite should get an “A” for effort! AND….grinding up Cheeze Nips for a popcorn is a very original idea!

    • LOL! PJ!! You are right! An A for effort. He could milk that one for a very long time!!! Thanks for coming down the bayou. Please visit often. We’re giving away a Community Coffee produce each week! BW

  16. Considerably, the post is really the freshest on this laudable topic. I fit in with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your incoming updates. Saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the fantasti c lucidity in your writing. I will directly grab your rss feed to stay informed of any updates. De lightful work and much success in your business enterprise!
