This morning's cool weather inspired me to make a warm breakfast for the kids before starting week 2 of our 18th year of homeschooling. It's starting to feel like Fall when I get up at 6:00 o'clock in the morning. My husband and I ususally go outside and feed the chickens and walk around the yard to look at the morning glories as they begin to open.
Today I decided to make butter and buttermilk from a quart of heavy whipping cream I bought last week. It made 1 pint of buttermilk and 2 cups of butter. I used the buttermilk to make cheesy biscuits, but saved the butter for the rest of the week. Here is the recipe for the biscuits; 2 cups flour, 1 tbsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 cup coconut oil, 3/4 cup buttermilk.
I also made sausage gravy to pour over the biscuits. Here is the recipe for the gravy; 1 package sausage, 1/4 cup flour, 3 cups milk, salt and pepper. I'm hoping this breakfast will keep the kids full at least until lunch time so they're not in the kitchen 20 minutes later looking for something else to eat. That's the hardest part about trying to get school started in the morning. Wish me luck!
