Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits

Twitter is a really fun way to record thoughts that you forget about!

Forgotten Thoughts:

  • What was that song did I sing at Karaoke?
  • Oh yea, it was Videophone. And I didn’t know any of the lyrics so I laughed the whole time.
  • An Asian Captain America literally tried to beat me up.
  • I suggested we go outside, implying I have a black belt in jujitsu or something.
  • His friend convened and I commented on the peace and good in people. Bless them, right?

The tweets no longer exist, much like the actual memory of the moment. One tweet that is still there is something that subconsciously influenced this post, I watched a video about biscuits. It was cool. And then I made these. Thanks Ina!!!
