My mom is a fabulous cook.
Her roasts are tender, her dumplings are flavorful, and her pie crust is flaky.
We almost always had roast, mashed potatoes and sometimes biscuits for Sunday dinner.
As a teen, I would invite friends over for a Sunday meal, then it was boyfriends, and then husbands.
After the sister and I were married, whenever we lived close enough, our families would still eat Sunday dinners at the Parents.
Because newlyweds are always on the lookout for free food.
One Sunday, mom made some biscuits and Internet, they were sad little things.
They were flat, and a bit burnt dark on the bottom.
Sister’s husband, who never passes up an opportunity to make a joke, called them kerplunks so now our family calls any home made biscuit ‘kerplunks’.
They looked sort of like this.
Erin of Prudence Pennywise picked today’s TWWD of Sweet Potato Biscuits.
These are fabulous little kerplunks.
They are tender, sweet and wonderful with the honey butter I served them with.
I used a fresh baked sweet potato instead of canned, and I added a wee bit of sour cream to these because I thought it was the right thing to do.
These would be wonderful with soup, roast and mashed potatoes or even breakfast.
Go check out Erin’s blog. The recipe is there, but don’t be surprised if your ‘kerplunks’ don’t raise..I don’t think they are supposed to.
That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
