Clean Windows and Drop Biscuits

I know the title is about two totally unrelated things but hey, that's my life, it's how I roll.  I always have two (or maybe 3 or 4) things running through my head at once.

A couple of weeks ago, I got a nice little e-mail asking if I wanted to try out a window cleaning product and if I liked it, I would spread the news by blogging about it.

Oh boy, did I like it!


I can't quite figure out why it's called Fish Foam, but hey, it works, so who cares?  Not me.


I decided I would try it out on my worst messy glass...the door to the back yard.  Ya know, the one that my dogs (and maybe the kids too) jump on, drool on, and pretty much just make a disgusting mess.

Don't look at the deck in the back, it's a total disaster.  Focus on the glass, and save me further embarassment, ok?

The foam was thicker than I thought it would be.  Plus, it only took one pass with the paper towel to get all of the dirt and drool off.  With other products this often takes me two to three applications to get a clean look...even better, the smell was very mild.  All of these things equal l.o.v.e.


This stuff really works...and I didn't get paid to say that.

I also tried this out on the front of my fridge, the oven door, the dishwasher front, the microwave, etc. and it left everything shining beautifully.  If you are interested in some of your own go check it out here.

Now onto the baking portion of this post.

Last night I needed something to round out dinner.  Of course, I decided this at the last minute and didn't have time to make any rolls.  These drop biscuits fit the bill though.

They are super quick and use ingredients that most of us have on hand.

My husband described them as, "Not beautiful, but they taste pretty good".  They turned out crumbly but moist.  I even did a double take this morning and had a couple left over from last night with butter and jam spread on them...all I can say is mmmmm!


Here's the down and dirty recipe:

2 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 tsp. double acting baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup vegetable shortening (I used butter flavored Crisco.)
1 cup milk

Combine all of your dry ingredients.  Cut in the Crisco until it is broken into small pieces.  Add the milk.  The dough will be pretty sticky.

Take a large spoon and drop your biscuits onto a greased cookie sheet.  This should make 10 to 12 biscuits depending on the size you make.  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 16 minutes.  Spread with butter and roll your eyes in delight as you enjoy!

There you have it, cleaning and baking...two things I do the most.  Happy Monday!
