30 Minutes for 30 Days: Day 3, plus biscuits


Welcome to Day 3 of my 30 Minutes for 30 Days series!  If you are just joining me, you can find out how this all got started HERE.  You can read all the 30 for 30 posts HERE.

Today the oven repairman is coming!  Woohoo!  I'll be able to bake again, which I haven't been able to do since the first of September!

While he's here I plan to spend my 30 minutes neatening and decluttering the main bathroom. We have a standing cabinet that needs serious cleaning, and I'll go ahead and wipe down the walls and floors while I'm in there.

For The Minimalist Game I've chosen to get rid of:

1.  A dozen empty cans that I was saving because, you know, that's what you do.
You have probably seen an empty can or two in your day, so I won't insult you with a picture of all the empty cans in the recycling bin.  I can assure you the picture would have been my usual standard of quality - in other words, crappy.

2.  This pair of adorable old lady shoes that I really like, but which sadly no longer fit my old ballerina feet.

Aren't these cute???  I am SO sad they don't fit anymore.  Damn you, old ballerina feet.


3.  This was a biggie.  I cancelled a recurring event that had become a burden.  One item deleted from my calendar.  
What does a picture of a cancellation look like? I'm going with this:

Now, about that no oven-having thing.  For eight weeks I haven't been able to bake, roast, or broil. This has been no bueno.  However, yesterday I tried a work-around that turned out fine so here you go:  Skillet Biscuits.

NOTE:
There are varying numbers of biscuits in these pictures.  No continuity.  
All will all be clear momentarily.  You're welcome.

Heat the skillet.  Drop in some butter.  While it is melting, open a can of bicuits.

Add biscuits.  WATCH THEM CAREFULLY!  DON'T TURN YOUR BACK OR TRY TO BLOG!

SEE?  Watch them carefully.  Don't try to blog.  You will get distracted and burn your biscuits and then all your pictures will have different numbers of biscuits in them.

Start over.  Open another can of biscuits, drop them in the skillet with fresh butter.

Swish a spatula around in the butter then, as we say inn the South, mash 'em.

When the bottoms are browned to your liking, flip them and continue cooking.

If you like, you can let them rise a bit.

Done!  Serve topped with some canned pie filling and a sprinkle of sugar.  Don't apologize.

What should I do tomorrow with my 30 for 30 time?  Would you rotate rooms each day, or would you stick with the same room until it is done?
