Homemade Biscuits

Homemade Biscuits

A delicious breakfast I have been enjoying these past couple days is some homemade biscuits or fry bread. It’s super easy to make, takes about 10 or 15 minutes from start to finish and it’s delicious!
This amount of ingredients makes 5 medium sized biscuits.
2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup shortening or partly melted butter
1/2 cup warm water
Mix the dry ingredients first, then slowly add in the water and shortening until you get something like this

Next get a skillet and add some olive oil and place whatever sized dough you would like in the skillet

After a few minutes flip your biscuits. It should be golden brown on the cooked side

Once the biscuits look good to eat add whatever toppings you would like.
This morning my mother and I topped our biscuits with butter, homemade rhubarb jam and peanut butter.

Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

Another one of my all time favorite breakfasts and especially perfect for fall, a pumpkin banana smoothie! Even if you are not a huge fan of pumpkin you should give it a try, the pumpkin flavor is not to overwhelming, its the perfect balance! Yummmm

I usually try to put a few healthy additives in my smoothie to make it more nutritional, but the only required ingredients are the pumpkin, banana, milk, and honey. You can also change the amount of food you use depending on how much you want. The amounts I listed make a large smoothie, which I usually substitute for a whole meal and it super filling.

I use my nutribullet to make my smoothie, so I usually drink my smoothie from the blender cup provided, but you can add it in another cup to make it a little more presentable, or to save some for later. 🙂

This was the perfect ending to our family picnic today. Pairing this with some vanilla ice cream would be magical!
