Strawberry Shortcake: It's What's For Dinner

Wow, I haven't posted in a whole week...what have I been doing? Beats the heck out of me but I guess it didn't involve a whole lotta cooking.
I felt like having a little strawberry shortcake on biscuits tonight. Just made up a regular biscuit recipe and added a bit of sugar. I thought it was scrumptious! If I remember correctly that's the way Steak and Shake made their strawberry shortcake. I kinda miss them sometimes. (mmm! chili 3 way!)
We also had Ida Garten's Chicken Piccata. It looks kinda boring but that lemon sauce is lovely. And that would be Rice a Roni pasta it's served on.
Later this week I'll announce a giveaway...so be sure to check back!

I haven't posted in about a week either. I seem to be having the cooking blahs. I love the biscuit version of strawberry shortcake and yours looks yummy. I think strawberry shortcake qualifies as a great breakfast tomorrow, right?? I mean biscuits are breakfast food and so are strawberries : )

OOH that looks yummy! That last one with the beans and rice looks even better, and it's too late at night to start getting hungry!

Ewww, not a fan of Steak n Shake. But the lemon piccata is a whole other story. It doesn't look boring to me!

And that shortcake! Ah!

Krista said...

That's a good lookin' strawberry shortcake! I prefer my shortcake biscuit-syle, rather than on the "spongy cake".

And I also serve Rice a Roni or other packaged pasta mixes as a side to an otherwise from scratch meal. It's all about the short cut!
