pinterest dinner

Last week, I made a dinner entirely of recipes I found on Pinterest.  I made Pioneer Woman's country fried steak and gravy, parm asparagus and broiled potatoes

* Side note: If you are not on Pinterest - do it today!  It is a virtual pinboard that lets you 'pin' various items to your board for future reference such as recipes, house ideas, fashion, crafts, etc.  I love it!*

Not sure why this picture won't post right-side up.  Ugh.

The country fried steak was A-mazing.  The cuts I got from Publix were, by far, the most tender I have ever bought.  And, the spices and double-dipping were definitely the way to go. 

I got a hold of the asparagus so make sure you don't overdo it.  Flavor was good but mine was a little dry.

Again, love the flavor of the potatoes but they needed a little more butter.  I think I am going to try olive oil next time. 

And, today, Brad had the leftover gravy on some biscuits.  Yum.  Here's a quick, fail-proof biscuit recipe for you.  

2 c SR flour
1 c buttermilk
1/2 c shortening

Cut all ingredients together to make a wet, sticky batter.  Drop on greased cookie sheet and bake at 450 until slightly browned and done through.  They will be crumbly but fantastic.  I half the recipe for just me and Brad.
