General Discussion / Re: Flu Shot or Not?
« Last post by imnukensc on October 17, 2018, 12:38:13 PM »
Haven't gotten the flu shot yet.  Will do that next week.  Have gotten a flu shot every year for at least the last 25 years.
Got the new shingles shots earlier this year.  After getting the first you have to wait at least 2 months to get the second.  When it was a little past 2 months after the first shot and about time to get the second, I had read somewhere they were having trouble keeping up with the vaccine and it was in short supply.  Called my pharmacy and they said, "We have 3 left." I said, "The wife and I will be there in less than 5 minutes."  We know friends who have had shingles.  It wasn't nice for them---and still isn't over a year later.

2 hour wait on my scheduled flu shot.  That poor nurse was trying her best.


They can't even get the shingles vaccine right now.

I like that frozen butter thing. There's a cleverness there.

Thanks Wolfy, I had two more for lunch and even got my wife to eat one. 

The Southern Living video mentioned that no twist when the lady was pushing her little metal biscuit cutter into the dough.  She also said that by making the 5 folds you insure a flaky biscuit. 

I gotta season my DO today.

I get one every year. During tax season I handle all kinds of paperwork so it is best to get one.


Edit: Used to be against them but keeped on getting the flu. One year it knocked me down for a week, during tax season and i felt it for three more weeks. I am thinking i was in my late twenties and healthy as a horse. It took a long time for me to snap but i am glad i did. Have not had a bad flu for a while now (knocking on my head) knock on wood. Lol

BISCUIT TIP TRIVIA:  When preparing to make rolled-out &  'cut,' rather than 'drop' biscuits, push straight down on the biscuit cutter, rather than using a twisting motion.  The biscuits will raise higher while baking if you simply push the cutter instead of twisting it. 

I credit both Heloise and grouchy ol' Chef Palmer for that simple tip. :thumbsup:

BTW, nice lookin' biscuits, Stan! :drool:   You and Jeremiah both make damn good biscuits. 8)

I just finished my first try with the parchment.  We had sheets of 18" that covered the baking sheet end to end.  Just lucky on that. 

This recipe is simple,  2.5 cups of self rising flour (or add baking powder and salt like I did), 1 stick of frozen butter grated into flour, 1 cup of buttermilk.  Stir the mix 15 times.  It is sticky!  Roll out and fold four or five times.  Cut biscuits and put them touching on the baking sheet with parchment.  475 F for fifteen minutes.  Brush with butter as they are cooling. 

They came out pretty well, taste good to me. 

Next up we will use the dough in the DO.  Maybe in a week or so.

Stan I used the 12" parchment paper.  Next time I buy it I'm going to get 18" if I can find it.  My banana cobbler spilt over a little.
