We had vegetable gumbo with biscuits.
I loosely followed this recipe I found on allrecipes.com, but in true Gordi fashion, I mixed it up so much it hardly was recognizable as the original. These are approximations of the ingredients I used.
I meant to make a soup, but it turned out to be more of a stew, so I would suggest increasing the water. The flavor was nice, and it was quite a hearty soup. (Disclaimer: the measurements on nearly everything is an estimate. I tend not to measure things when I cook. It adds to the adventure.)
While the stew was simmering, I made biscuits.
Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Cut in the butter and mix with a fork until it resembles a coarse meal. Add buttermilk and mix just until all the dry ingredients are mixed in. Press out on a floured surface, flattening to about 1/2 inch thickness with fingers. Cut biscuits (if you're me you use the rim of a drinking glass because you don't actually have a biscuit cutter), place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees for about 11 minutes.
The recipe supposedly makes 12 biscuits, but I only managed to squeeze out 10. I didn't press out the dough enough I suppose. One other thing to note is that I actually do measure when baking because I don't understand baking well enough to mess with the ratios of ingredients. So these measurements are exact.
