As you may already know, B had a field hockey tournament last weekend up in Pennsylvania. B and her teammates played well and more importantly they had a wonderful time. It might be just me that feels this way but win or lose the rides home from tournaments are soo long! The excitement is over and B always falls asleep on me. So I always enjoy driving into town and knowing we are home.
Coming home on Saturday was made even better by the scene B and I walked in on. Hubby and M were fast at work on some homemade biscuits. After a quick hug, L informed me that we were having ham and biscuits for dinner. I might be a Northern girl but I must have a little Southern heart because I was just over the moon!
Hubby and the boys followed Southern Living's recipe "Our Favorite Buttermilk Biscuit" from their May 2014 addition. These biscuits were tender and flaky. Plus the butter tang was spot on! While these biscuits would have been perfect by themselves, my boys took it to a whole other level.
Hubby cooked a country ham steak on a casket iron skillet. While the ham was cooking he sliced the biscuits then he spread djion mustard on them. He also sliced some extra sharp cheddar cheese. When the ham was nice and hot he pulled it off the pan and sliced it into bite sized pieces. Finally he added a slice of ham and cheese to each biscuit. Simply put... it was heaven on a biscuit!!!
And if you didn't think I was already too spoiled I should let you know that Hubby DVR'ed the Derby for me. Please don't tell me that I was the only one that loved Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski!?!
