@Magicman , I too am wondering how you are making out. I saw you logged in earlier this afternoon but saw no posts. Hoping you folks are hunkered down and getting through it. Y'all have been on my mind all weekend.

Yup, the Forestry Forum is my 'home page' so even if I log on to check the weather I have passed through here.  

All is well here.  The Power companies and their contractors are doing a magnificent job restoring power.   Marty and I have removed all of the generators (4) that our families were using except one and we expect that it can be removed before dark.

PatD and I made a quick trip to the Cabin and all was OK there except the power was/is still off so we removed what little was in the frig.  

Tomorrow will be a clean up day and hopefully I can saw Wednesday for my customer and Thursday for myself.

The biscuits and maple syrup are a fave of mine.  Mr. Gerald Bouchard gave me some very fine syrup as I have been maple syrup challenged and it has been very much savored and enjoyed.

No in da oven.  Actually dat skillet thing is probably more accurately called a griddle, 'cause it's only maybe an inch deep. 



It holds da heat well and browns da bottoms very nicely.  I like 'crusty' biscuits.  This is a different batch and it's easier to see the height of the sides.

Glad you came through not too bad.

I had an old Carpenter working for me in the 1970's, who was pretty overweight.  He went to the doctor, and the Dr. told him he needed to back off eating biscuits, and lose some weight.  

The next time he went to the doctor (he was having heart trouble), the doctor told him he thought he'd told him to back off the biscuits. 

Mr. Pierce said," I did back off eating biscuits."

The Doctor asked him how many he ate last night, and Mr. Piece said, "I didn't eat but a dozen."

Interestingly enough, PatD's biscuit skillet bakes a Baker's Dozen

I'm a lousy cook but I usually have pretty good luck with biscuits. I would like to try those biscuits, any chance PatD would share the recipe?

When I make biscuits I gotta peel the wrapper off the can far enough that it goes "PLOOF!" If I don't go poppin' right away, I gotta bang it on the corner of the counter. ;D

I seen a recipe online for cookin' biscuits in a skillet on a stovetop (or campfire) covered like a Dutch oven, wondered if you were "roughin' it" and makin' 'em dat way.

Another handy use for whomp biscuits.  Chicken and Dumplings. Only 2 ingredients for those of us that are culinary challenged. Okay 3 if you add a Vidalia onion or two.

  Dumplings and fried apple/fruit pies are the the only valid reason for having whoomp biscuits in the fridge. They are an abomination when served in lieu of the real thing. Unfortunately I think they are what Cracker Barrel is serving which is sort of like watching a great society in sharp decline. :(
