I made biscuits again this morning...
I am pretty sure I didn't add as much shortening
as I should have because they were a tad bit dry... 
...ahhh...but they STILL tasted just fine !
Now, I also have a few maple donuts...
OMGosh...I LOVE ANYthing you? 
I have so many RED BERRIES on my beautiful holly bushes that I just
can't not use them for THANKSGIVING, too, right along with CHRISTMAS..
No sir ree...I'm not going to have a day from now until they quite producing
the tiny little berries without a vase of them in every room...!!!!
 My little round table is a 
DROP LEAF that I forgot about when I did my post on
 Have you discovered this MAGNIFICENT coffee creamer ?
white chocolate raspberry
I am really enjoying this little 3 candle iron bird candle holder...
I use it all over the entire house..
I just love things that I can just move around so easy....

 I LUV playing with my photos in PhotoScape...
...amazing how the holly screams CHRISTMAS....:)
and see how creamy and delicious MY coffee looks with that good creamer...
Many thanks for coming by for breakfast...
Next time, I'm make you scrambled eggs...
with cheese, hot sauce, peppers, ANYway you might want them...:))
You know....sometimes I love eggs...well....very seldom, really.
But I can't eat them for breakfast...
I have to "do" them for a late supper...(aka DINNER)
BUT, I sure can eat BISCUITS or DONUTS 
ANY time of the day...
Linking with the wonderful SUSAN for TABLESCAPE THURSDAY

You should be a food stylist, BJ...especially for breakfast and brunch!! Your food always looks so good!

I made the same tablecloth as you did last year and I can't find makes me want to cry!!


Kathleen Grace said...

I'm having my own home grown eggs for dinner right now, along with some bacon and sweet potatoes. Yum!
The bird candle holder is so cute, I love things with birds on them. I think I just saw one like it somewhere....hmmm can't remember where though. Have a good night BJ!

Sandi McBride said...

Love all the pics you have posted and honey chile, those biscuits can't be dry with that luscious lump of butter sitting in the middle, so pass the maple syrple and a napkin and the coffee!

Kisses and hugs.

How I wished you lived next door. You have such a Southern Comfort way of making me 'feel at home'!
There is NO WRONG way to make a biscuit! ! ! Yours look yummy. . .Hm-m-m Saturday morning breakfast, maybe? Thank you for uplifting a tired salesclerks spirits!

Okay, BJ... I am in love. You know I covet those polka dot plates and your bird candle (not to mention your bisquits!), but I am so loving that burlap table cloth. Where on earth did you find that cuter than cute thing??? That's some major cuteness!

Happy Tablescape Thursday to you, my friend. I want to come drink coffee and shoot the breeze with you and eat about TEN of those bisquits and pass out in a sugar coma, particularly if you bring out sugary maple goodness. YUM!

Your holly is beautiful BJ-enjoy it! Of course the biscuits are TDF! I just started eating eggs with hot sauce a couple months ago, look what I've been missing all of my life:@)

Beautiful post, BJ! Loved your photos!!

We had biscuits and apple butter for breakfast today.:-)

Yep I'll be back for breakfast.


Julie Harward said...

bj, you always do everything up playing house and I think that is so much fun! ;D

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love biscuits but don't make them. I think that bird candle holder is so cute! Goes great with so many things and perfect with your breakfast plates. Oh and I love the French Vanilla Creamer but this looks amazing! YUM>

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Guess what Beeeej? I was at Walmart today and I bought some Dunkin Dark coffee in honor of YOU!!!!! Now if I just had one of those maple donuts ;(
Love to you!

La said...

I have tried and tried to make biscuits, but mine are never as fluffy as those in a restaurant. Is it because I have a conventional oven? Your look very fluffy. La

Marydon said...

Biscuits & butter ... AND ... maple anything ... HOLD ON! SAVE ME SOME! & how far did you say you are from San Antonio ... chuckle!

We love maple bars for breakfast & I actually made biscuits & homemade sausage gravy for breakfast today ... yum!

Have a lovely eve ~

Sweetladyelaine said...

Thank you for breakfast! It was wonderful....I love coffee and biscuits. You set a very inviting table!

Debbie said...

This all made me want to settle right down at that table and dig in. I LOVE your pictures. I wish that I had your eye for the shot.

Everything on the table edible or not looked wonderful. (I will be trying the raspberry creamer for sure)

Now you know I'm not much on sweets, Miss BJ. But those bisuits sure look yummy! My Yankee sweetheart makes a pretty mean biscuit, as well.

Love the tablescape...with all your wonderful little touches.

xinex said...

Yummy breakfast! I should use my berries too cause I have so much. I love your bird candle holders, BJ, but actually, I like everything....Christine

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Bj, Your biscuits look yummy. If they are dry it is just a good excuse for using more butter and jam! My husband always makes the bisquits because his is so much better than mine. I am with you on the egg thing. I can't eat them for breakfast at all. Every once in a while I can do an omelet at dinner.

Kathleen said...

Now don't put any hot sauce on my eggs, I take them with ketchup!
I can only eat eggs for breakfast...we are all different in out tastes, LOL. Keeps it interesting. Can't eat pork chops without applesauce, and dh eats it after he finishes!

Have a great weekend, BJ!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh my BJ I will be right over. I like honey on my bisquits.

Cozy Home Scenes said...

Ugh! Why did I have to look at this. (Just kidding!) Before I went gluten free, maple doughnuts and the ones from Krispy Kreme were my favorites. Oh well, at least I can still enjoy doughnuts, just not those.

Love your table setting!

Tammy said...

Biscuits look Yummy! and I love the little bird candle holder!
Have a great weekend!

Your breakfast looks so tasty and your photos are gorgeous. They look like a magazine shoot.

Jacqueline said...

What a yummy breakfast. Homemade breads and biscuits for breakfast just screams love.

Theresa said...

ANYTIME I read your blog, you make me hungry! EVERYTHING you make looks tasty and yes I want to sit at your table SOMEDAY:) BIG hugs!

DeAnna said...

Jane's right! I can smell the biscuits! Breakfast is one of favorite dinners!! Thanks for sharing!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Oh those red & white polka dot plates!!!! Delightful!

Just noticed your "Take anything from my blog" button. Mmmmmmmmm... Hadn't you better re-think that one?


Does that include Mr. Sweet?????

Beth said...

What a beautiful post, BJ! Your food always looks awesome! I made biscuits and gravy the other day; that too is an awesome breakfast but usually I have oatmeal with added blueberries and flaxseed. I have a pumpkin tart in the oven now; got the recipe from Butter Yum and we all know she is a fabulous cook too. I'm serving the pumpkin tart for Tea Time Tuesday so stop on by and have a slice on Tuesday! You are the kindest, most upbeat yet sassy Southern woman. Love how your personality comes through in your posts. We will be in Texas (Houston) over Thanksgiving. Looking forward to it.

From the Kitchen said...

I'd just love to sit down to those biscuits (when dry, slather on more butter). I just returned from my southern vacation that was filled with biscuits and country ham. Oh my!

I wish I had some berry-bearing holly to enjoy for the season.

Have a wonderful weekend!
