do you wanna know a secret? I have never eaten these biscuits!! I will try and find them tomorrow and I will let you know what I think, they don't have a lot of these things here, I think our new WalMart should have them though, yours look so good with your jam,

I sure do not envy you unpacking all your things, but I probably would rather do that then pack the new place, there is nothing better then have a pool in your view...just love looking at that breakfast lunch and dinner....can't wait to see what you do with this wonderful space...come on over for al visit when you are resting from all the work...

I am so happy you are feeling GRAND!!
We have TWO pantries these days and when I go in to prepare a meal I get so confused as to what is HERE and what is THERE! We have taken advantage of the good processed foods available. Most are better than anything I can make!

LV said...

I use Grands a lot, but they turn out like yours. I think it is my oven, had it since 1964. Would get a new one if I cooked more. Take time to rest a minute.

I have long thought that packaged products like cakes and even biscuits are just just can't go wrong. I love Grands with sausage and gravy, they really hold up well.

So glad your life is Grand and Golden these day, my friend!!

I know you will be glad when all the packing is over. Just keep smiling and before you know it, you will be all finished. Hugs.

Nothing much more delightful than hot biscuits, butter, and jams. Hmmmmm... And all chased along with a lovely cup of tea or some coffee. You take the best photos of food.

Do you know Patti of Pandora's Box blog? She is CRAZY about Mackenzie Childs things and that tea pot could have been lifted directly from her photo archives!

Stacey said...

You are a wise woman and a temptress. You always show the best food. We make wonderful homemade biscuits but we always have Grands here on hand too. I'll confess that my hubby makes them if he's dying for homemade. Otherwise if it's up to me we have Grands. Have you had the small size ones? I like those too...with a little apricot jam. :)

The scones and jam look delicious - our Sunday lunch ones are made from commercial scone mix too. Why not?

Your new home looks wonderful, and just put the swimming togs on and go for it! You definitely can't let that pool go to waste.


Theresa said...

Sometime when life is not so grand, we find ways to make it so. Grand biscuits and golden jam help start the day off right.

Your happy attitude is contagious.
