Our Daily Bread: Easy Drop Biscuits

Today’s gospel reading focused on peace. The peace that Our Lord gives is not of this world: it is a supernatural peace that enables us to maintain our optimism despite the many trials and tribulations we face here on earth. Because we are children of God, we can be confidant that our heavenly Father remains with us always…and this simple and glorious fact is the root of our peace.

This whole notion of peace presented itself quite beautifully today. While preparing dinner, our two boys were a bit rambunctious and enjoying pushing each other’s temper buttons as only brothers can! Just when I thought that they had reached their limit, we heard footsteps on the front porch followed by the glorious sight of my husband walking through the front door. Immediately the boys were gleefully singing: “Daddy is home.” Joy flooded the home and peace was restored! We must remember to welcome God Our Father in just this same way, for he is always there willing to restore peace!

Along with the idea of peace, here is a family favorite comfort food:

Easy Drop Biscuits

2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon cream of tartar (I have often substituted baking soda)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup melted butter (1/2 a stick)
1 cup milk

Mix the wet ingredients. Add the dry and stir until just combined.
Bake at 450° for 8-12 minutes on a greased baking sheet.
