Flour Power

One night this week I was watching a show on Discovery or THC all about bread. That got me thinking about the opened container of white flour I've had for several years(?). I've only used it to make a batch of fried chicken maybe once every 6 months. Figured if there's nothing crawling around in it, it ought to still be good. I didn't have the yeast stuff to make bread, but I bet myself I could make a batch of biscuits... so I did. Ugh. That's what I get for having a neither a recipe nor any skill at baking. The biscuits were edible, but nothing I'd feed to company, so I put them in the fridge. This morning I whipped up some S.O.S. using turkey sausage -- and smothered a couple biscuits with it. Better!

    Just about anything can be fixed if you have enough gravy to put on it.

    Dealing with weevils in flour is easy. Put the bag of flour in the freezer for a week. Three days of sub-freezing temps kills weevil eggs.

    Most flour has weevil eggs already in it. Since your bag ain't crawling on you, you lucked out.

    Steve's bacon-grease biscuits. 2 cups self-rising flour, 1/4 cup bacon grease, enough milk(I keep dry buttermilk for stuff like this) to make dough. Cut the grease in, add the milk, fold the dough 6-8 times, roll out 1/2" thick, cut biscuits and bake at 400 till golden. Damn, they're good.
