September is here, and while it is still pretty hot in California, I’m already thinking about all the delicious soups and stews I can make for the coming fall/winter months. Growing up, my mom used to make these heavenly things called Beer Rolls to go with soup. More like a drop biscuit than a roll, they basically consisted of a can of Budweiser and Bisquick. She’d also throw in a couple tablespoons of wheat germ, because that was her answer for most foods she deemed unhealthy. Later on, she decided Bisquick was just too unhealthy to have in the house at all, and sadly Beer Rolls went away. Until now! With a 2-for-1 in this post, I created a homemade Bisquick mix you can keep in your fridge for several months, and then recreated and renamed those delicious Beer Biscuits (Rolls).
As October comes to an end, thoughts turn to November which automatically makes me think of all that I am thankful for. I am beginning to plan the items I will make for our family’s Thanksgiving feast and of course I’ve already begun my Christmas shopping. As I think on these upcoming events, I am reminded of how blessed I am. How I have so many loving people in my life. I am reminded how important it is to reach out and show love to someone in need. Maybe its a coworker, the next door neighbor, or your child’s teacher or coach. Maybe you’ve wanted to reach out but didn’t know how. My thought is that food is a wonderful key to open the door to a persons heart and that is why we have a special recipe for you along with a special announcement.
Today is the first of the month and normally that means a bonus recipe for blog subscribers only. But this month, the first falls on a regularly scheduled blog Sunday so we have a special recipe for all of our Ankarsrum USA Blog guests. This recipe will also give you a taste of what our bonus recipes are like.
Today is also special because July 4th is just a few days away and with it comes a celebration of our nation’s birth. July 4th for our family is filled with great food and tons of board games and a wonderful day spent with great friends. This coleslaw recipe will be one you will want to add to your holiday menu for sure.
