Menu Plan Monday - June 20, 2011

Hope everyone enjoyed Father's Day yesterday! We went to church and brunched with dear friends, then took a long nap. Afterward, Bryan hunkered down on the living room floor with the boys to watch Star Wars. Fun and relaxing!

Tonight Meghan made these delicious biscuits. While hardly low-fat, they don't use vegetable shortening and are a snap to whip up. I think she made around 30 and not a crumb was left!

E-Z Drop Biscuits
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup melted butter
2 cups milk

1.Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

2.In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir in butter and milk just until moistened. Drop batter on a lightly greased cookie sheet by the tablespoon.

3.Bake in preheated oven until golden on the edges, about 8 to 12 minutes. Serve warm.
