I was not aware of this, but apparently there are a huge number of food-specific holidays in the United States -- almost one a day. I found out because my girlfriend pointed out to me just this morning that today is National Buttermilk Biscuit Day.
In America, a biscuit is a soft, breadlike food served with meals. This differs from the UK, where a biscuit is a hard cookie-like object. (I don't know if they have a different word for cookies in the UK.) National Buttermilk Biscuit Day is celebrated by buying or making biscuits. It's all pretty straightforward.
Caitlin and I decided to make a batch of biscuits, in celebration. Pictures below the fold.
We made duckies! In honor of Ze Frank. And also because Caitlin had a duck-shaped cutter thingy.
Not all of them came out as well as those ones did, though. This one expanded so much that it fell over.
I think they look a lot better split and topped, wouldn't you agree?
