Labor Day

My husband and I had our first “date” on Labor Day weekend four years ago. This was our first time meeting in person, since he lived in LA and I lived in NYC (a story for another time). He came to New York to see me and it was one of the best weekends I have ever had.

This year we had a nice relaxing weekend filled with friends, baseball, pool time, and food. We spent Labor Day itself hanging out just the two of us, and it was exactly what I wanted. We made cheese biscuits, caught up on some work around the house, read, played games, watched a movie, and drank Manhattans. We only left the house to put in laundry across the parking lot and buy guacamole at the corner store a block down. Perfect.

Enough about us. Here’s some tips for biscuits:

Most of my favorite biscuit recipes are from America’s Test Kitchen, so googling “biscuits” and their name will bring up some winners. I healthy mine up by using white whole wheat flour, Smart Balance for the butter, and low fat buttermilk. They aren’t quite as fluffy, but there really isn’t a big difference and they are still delicious. We made the drop biscuit version and threw in some cheese, cracked pepper, and fresh rosemary to spice things up.
