Cheddar Garlic Biscuits


It’s been a rather difficult last few days for me. I’m trying to stay focused with my goals and maintain productive, but my heart is broken. My husband and I lost a friend to depression, grief, and loneliness. This story is a sad one.

I’ve been thinking about our friend Shawn a lot. He lost his wife suddenly about 4 months ago, and I know his heart was broken. Even performing daily tasks were difficult, and the grief he felt was too much for him. I hope now he is with his beautiful wife, and has found some peace.

Yesterday, I made cheddar garlic biscuits for my husband. The last several times I made biscuits I thought I would make extra for my buddy Shawn. Shawn couldn’t cook very well, and I know he like biscuits. For some reason I never did. The little things are what are getting me.

Anyway, instead of making just regular buttermilk biscuits I opted for a little cheddar and garlic. They came out surprisingly well, and Emery said that they reminded him of the Red Lobster biscuits minus the Italian seasoning on top.  The texture was fluffy, moist, cheesy, and filled with a definite garlic taste.  I must admit I’m not a huge fan of Red Lobster.  I can count on one hand how many times I’ve been there in my whole life.  However, I have to admit that their biscuits are awesome!
