Mixed berry shortcake
Its Monday. Its a brand new week. The birds are chirping. The coffees brewing. Everything has such hope and promise.
And heres why The utter horror the abject hopelessness of springing forward is finally behind us.
Man, was this year a toughie. I didnt think I was going to make it there for a minute. The first part of last week, I felt like a combination of zombie, sloth, nitwit, dodo bird, and koala bear. I couldnt think, move, think, function, or remember the Macarena.
But slowly, as the week went on, things slowly improved. By the weekend, it became clear to me that I was going to live. And to celebrate, yesterday I made a round of berry shortcakes for the everyone. It felt so good to be back.
Youll love this shortcake recipe. I used a sweet version of the drop biscuits I made in last weeks Biscuit and Sausage Gravy post, then I whipped up some syrupy berries and topped the whole thing with an unimaginably delectable sweet yogurt cream, which should come with a warning label, its so addictive.
