A Little Innovation, and a Little Rain

So I said earlier that we have beans in the crockpot, and I would take some biscuits that are already cooked out of the freezer to go with them. Do you know how awful biscuits are warmed up in the microwave? Absolute cardboard. I got the biscuits out and arranged them neatly on the lid of the crockpock. Free gentle heat. I turned them over and they are going to be perfect. I could start a discussion about us having rain, but I will just add it on here. I got my lawn finished and the mower put in the shed just in time. First I heard distant thunder, then big fat plops of drops of rain. Now we have a steady downpour. This is good. It is cooler, and Princess is disgusted as this is when she usually goes outside.

I know I sound like a broken record, but I'll say it again. I would love to see and feel some rain.

I will try hard to wish it for you. It had been about ten days since we had had any.

Bread in general gets really tough when warmed in the microwave.

She just really loves to make herself comfortable where ever she chooses.

Pretty little Princess kitty. That was a good idea about warming the biscuits. I've done that in our little steamer.

I love breads of all kinds but should limit them in my diet. So when I have made a quantity I always freeze it.

Many things are not good heated in the microwave, also the bread becomes cardboard.

I know some other things lose their texture in the microwave.

@GardenGerty The microwave is good to thaw frozen food and to heat some things like lasagna.

It is not quite what we call dog days here, but we have had a lot of heat last week. It did end with a big thunderstorm. I hope you have rain soon as well.

We are far enough east here that we are not quite hitting 100. That rain will make things steamy too.

I never thought about that as a way to warm bread. I will remember that though. I use the crock pot a lot to cook .

Hi, haven't seen you around in a while. Yes, I use the crockpot a lot. I think I may put them in foil next time and see how that goes.
