A few new items coming our way!

Hello to all my faithful readers!

I'm very sorry about missing last week's post! It was Spring Break for my area! Egad people were thirsty! Not That I'm complaining or anything like that! The only problem was is that I missed "talking" to all of you!

I'm here now and rocking out this post for you guys! Just about  a little something we have coming in soon!

Mike's Hard Smashed Apple Cider
5% alc/Vol
16 oz
This for me was a little different then the average mike's.  It had a full soft body and is smooth going down. It's detfinatly not your average Cider. It reminded me more of Apple Juice with a kick. It is on the sweet side. For those non beer drinkers you will fall in Love with this! I still prefer a good Cider any day of the week though!

Mike's Shandy
Hard Lemonade and Lager
4.2% alc/Vol
11.2 oz
Remember that classic Lemonade taste from our childhood? You know, how mama would mix Lemon juice with sugar and water. Yep, that Classic flavor. Mike's has Managed to Capture this within a bottle as well to top it all off..... They use a Smooth tasting Lager. I was happy with the mellowness of this Shady. These days I'm seeing more and more companies rocking out a shandy. The only way only way to find your favorite is to taste a lot them! I must Say that this one will probably be popular with the ladies out ofall the Shanties.

Mike's Frozen Pouches
5 % alc / vol
10 oz
I do happen to be a fan of frozen drinks during the summer! Wait! Who am I kidding! Aren't we all? I am not a fan of Tequila. But, all the same the sweet and sour taste of a Margarita just hits the Spot Sometimes. I've tried Mike's Classic Margarita. There is no tequila in this. Just their perfectly Flavored beer. I Was super happy with this. I look forward to trying their other flavors!

You are probably wondering where my awsome little intro is right? Well sometimes I like to throw you guys for a  little loop! Keep you on your toes so to say! I know I know I'm a pain in the ass! But, I do it so well! Moving onto more important matters such as.....FOOD!!!!!

The recipe is pretty self explanatory so I don't think we really need to go further into that other then the fact this is my FAVORITE EASY biscuit recipe! Thank you Kraft for putting this together! Now you are probably looking at the picture that has strawberries in it and going...

"Dottie...what is THAT suppose to be?!"

What you should be saying is, "What sort of Deliciousness did you come up with this time!?" Lol!!!!

In truth this was great and actually a little on the healthy side. I know right...healthy? No way! The idea of it is simple and easy to make.

Make the dough for the biscuits as stated above without the cheese.
Simply pull the dough out into 9 balls set aside
Pull out a frying pan get it nice and hot!
Flatten out each ball in your hand.
Think of this as making pancakes with a thick batter....or even mud pies!!! Yeess the mud pies from when we were kids! -Pat pat smush smush- until you have a nice flat "cake" in your hand!
Slap it onto the hot frying pan. You want it a light brown on each side. Just like a pancake.
Pull it off and set it on a plate.

Slice up some strawberries....do this before cooking the biscuits.
Put a few on each "cake" drizzle honey over it all and enjoy it!
Best enjoyed hot off the frying pan!

Simplicity is key to good food. If you have to much on any one dish you lose the focus of the dish. Keep this in mind as you play around with this recipe.
-try adding herbs for a savory bread
-chocolate syrup with fruit as well as any other syrup! (Strawberry, caramel)
-different cheeses

Good luck my dears in your cooking/baking adventure!
