We have a Saturday morning tradition that I really enjoy: Homemade biscuits for breakfast and eating together as a family. It is one of my favorite times of the week, because I get to sit down in the daylight hours with my wife and son and enjoy them as we eat.
I started making the biscuits a few years ago. It is a very simple recipie:
2 cups of flour; 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 5 1/2 tablespoons of butter (partially melted) and a half a cup of milk. Mix all that together, roll out, cut out biscuits, and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
I never thought anything so simple would bring comfort and joy. It is nice waking up on Saturday morning and having them to look forward to with Marixa and Trey. He asks for them most Saturdays.
But, come to think of it, it really is the simple things that I look forward to the most. Getting home from work and cooking dinner. Talking with Marixa about her day. Playing with Trey and seeing the new things he comes up with. I absolutely love it.
What things do you do every week that you look forward to with your family? How do you make the time you have special?
