So, the other night David was sweet enough to cook his "famous eggs" for dinner and I accompanied him by making some Turkey Bacon and homemade biscuits.
I'll admit, I was searching the cabinets for the Bisquick I just knew I had, but to my surprise, there was none. So I had to resort to the old fashioned way and look up a recipe and make them myself.
I got out my Simplified Dinners book......
and sure enough, she had a biscuit recipe in the back. Yay!
I went to my "baking" cabinets and pulled out all the ingredients that were needed, put them on the counter, and proceeded to start measuring everything into my mixing bowl.
***Let me add here that I recently put as many dry baking necessities in jars, because I love jars and not so much, plastic bags or boxes.***
The recipe called for a little bit of salt, as well as sugar, so I reached in and grabbed, what I thought to be the Coconut Sugar (trying to stay healthy). Can you see where this might be a problem?
At the time, I only had a label on the top of the salt jar, not on the side, like the sugar, but that's still no excuse, because I had to open the jar and the label would have been staring right at me. DUH.
No matter - I accidentally put in the amount of salt, that was actually supposed to be sugar, so it was more than a "dash" if you know what I mean!
I tried my best to scoop some out of the bowl, but it was already mixing with the rest of the ingredients, so I really had no idea how this was going to turn out.
We were down to about 3 pieces of bread (for toast), so if these biscuits didn't turn out, we were eating eggs with no bread, which is unheard of in this house! Needless to say.....I was nervous!
Oh! Let me also add that this REAL SALT you see here, is the super healthy salt that only takes a fraction of what normal salt takes, to season something. So, increased worry was setting in!
However, I didn't announce my mistake (who does that?) beforehand, because I wanted to give them a chance to work, so I just popped them in the oven and hoped for the best.
And, let me tell you......YUM... is all I can say!!
David loved them, I loved them, we all loved them, and I even had them the next morning for breakfast!
You just never know when a mistake will lead to accidental goodness!
I think there's one more left in the kitchen and it's calling my name.
Moral of this story: Don't sweat the small stuff. Sometimes what you think will ruin everything, turns out to be just what you needed!
Have a blessed day!
