Today is going to be a day that I wear pj’s until I have to leave to pick up E, at 4:30 pm. I can just feel it in the air. Jet-lag and travel exhaustion usually doesn’t hit me until a few days after I get home, which is SUPER convenient. Plus, it only seems to hit when I have a full plate of work and a busy weekend ahead. Does this ever happen to anyone else? To deal with this crazed schedule and a strong desire for comfort food (one can only eat too many shrimps), I’m sharing (and dreaming of) these Parmesan rosemary biscuits.
I made these last week and I’ve never, in my life, seen a recipe go so fast. Because I cook so much, we’re often munching on leftovers the rest of the week. But these? These flaky, fluffy biscuits lasted a mere 4 hours. And since two of those hours saw just one person (and a furry companion) eating them, it’s rather shameful. Good thing that happened during “Mardi Gras” week, so it’s totally normal to indulge on 45,000 biscuits. At least each biscuit only has 2.6 grams of fat and less than 150 calories. That counts, right?
I swear my husband has a “carb-bread” radar. As soon as he walked in the house, he went straight for the COVERED plate of biscuits. This was before I instagrammed them or even mentioned the word bread. He walked up to the plate, took off the cover and gobbled about 3 down in lightning speed. It’s really an art-form how he can eat SO MUCH BREAD and not gain an ounce. After my biscuit binge I’m fairly certain I broke two chairs and had the buttons fly off all my jeans.
I’m seriously YEARNING for a biscuit but I’m far too tired & exhausted to cook anything not on my list today. And yes, I know how utterly and completely lazy that sounds.
