simple supper- super salad and fry biscuits

During the warm months of the year we often  have very simple, quick suppers  and more often than not  they are  vegetarian . One of our favorite meals is a big old salad.  I forage what is in season and pick what is coming out of the gardens. If I have any left over meat bits or fruit and nuts I add them in and  then throw a few herbs, spices, cheese on there and some vinaigrette that I made and we have a great meal.

Generally we have either crackers or some sort of bread with the salad. Tonight I didn't have either so I made some fry biscuits to go along with and served them with  dandelion syrup. It made a nice  spring time meal that took about  a half hour to prepare and literally cost pennies.

To make the fry biscuits just make your favorite  drop biscuit recipe omitting any  fat or oil. Heat oil to 375 and drop biscuits in to oil. Cook until golden brown and turn once. Drain on paper towel. Serve warm

  1. According to family legend, Grandma Storm made the best fried biscuits. Her grandsons loved that she would pack their school lunches with fried biscuit sandwiches.
    Naturally, by the time I came along, the recipe was legend and no one has been able to replicate it.
