Comments for Singing in the Car

Singing in the Car: 12/09/04

Sean has been providing the commute time entertainment with singing. His current two favorites are Old MacDonald and Jingle Bells. He doesn't quite have the lyrics down but the tune is there. Old MacDonald comes out something like "Old man had home" and Jingle Bells as "Jingbells."

Baking Supplies for Christmas:
Today I got the basics for baking for Sean: three wooden spoons (for "mix-mix"), a set of measuring cups, and a set of measuring spoons. I think he'll be thrilled. He loves to help us cook. He already knows how to make biscuits (except for the baking bit because I won't let him near the oven).

Prairie Biscuits:

Preheat oven to 450° F

2 cups flour
2 TB sugar
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
pinch of salt
2 TB baking powder
1/2 cup saltless butter (1 stick)
2/3 cup milk

Mix all the dry items thoroughly before cutting in the butter until the mixture is pea sized lumps. Remix the mixture with a wooden spoon making sure to get any remaining flour into the butter. Then slowly add the milk, mixing vigorously. Smash the largest sized butter bits with the spoon. Then with floured hands, mold dough into balls. Divide balls into smaller balls (about the size of your palm) and flatten balls. Put on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake at 450° F for 12 minutes. Makes 15. Serve with jam.
