    While you are down there, put a zip tie on the driveshaft where the tail end whips against the floor boards as it turns. Easy to find, but aggravating as heck to the driver

    That was a common occurrence at the nuke plant. We had the 1/2" wide zip ties that were knife resistant. :tooth:

    Also, any fresh road kill possum or raccoon was attached to the rear axle of a vehicle with about 10 feet of light rope and the animal hidden out of sight, usually on the differential. First bump and the critter fell off and was dragged behind the vehicle. The driver got some strange looks going down the road.

    Yeah probably because some libtard said it had too much unsaturated fat. Hog lard's full of that, but guess what? it isn't health food. But it sure makes biscuits good.

    I agree, the best biscuits are made with lard, I wish I knew how beer goes it there !
    I just know biscuits made with beer are just the ticket for me !!!!!
    I always liked roast beast with biscuits !

    Ps, the true question is: What manner of man eats the roast of the beast and beef of the roast and drinks new wine of the press ?

    I like Popeye's, and the frozen Pillsbury ones are excellent if you don't have time to make your own with Bisquik.

    A can of catfood wired between the catalytic converter and the floor panel is interesting, too. :silly:
    And a pint of 30W motor oil squirted into the muffler from the tailpipe can be exciting when the exhaust heats up. Sort of a homemade mosquito fogger.
    And a looooooonnnngggggg time ago I confess to threading strips of leftover bait squid down the fresh air intake of a car belonging to an ossifer I detested. Mayport, FL in 1975, in August. :vomit: It was O.K., though; he deserved it! :roll2:

    Don't remember a recipe. She would cook bone-in chicken breast for hours in a crock-pot (sometimes a whole chicken if it was on sale), pick out the bones, throw in a bouillon cube (or 2?), and thicken with corn starch. Put in a cake pan and cover with biscuits.

    Or you can make it as pot pie by throwing in what ever vegetables you like. Potatoes, corn, peas, and carrots come to mind........

    Now JPB, remember you're moving down south now. Southerners, at least the ones I associate with, don't contaminate Chicken pie with Peas and Carrots. They ain't proper veggies, unless they be black eyed or purple hull peas. Other wise that's Yankee food. My grandmother would have you hung, tarred and feathered and run out a town on a rail for that!!! :tooth:

    Being a fantastic cook, I don't think you can use biscuit makings for a pot pie. Pie dough is only flour, fat, and water. Biscuit dough has rising ingredients. It can work if you like huge crusts, but it's simpler to buy prepared pie crusts.

    Thing with any pot pie is if the pie spends enough time in the oven to cook the veggies. Probably won't work with carrots unless you pre cook them partially beforehand.

    Biscuit dough is great for biscuits, less great for pies or cobblers. I really wish great biscuits could be obtained in a can or in the frozen food section, but so far, it ain't so. My sister makes them with olive oil and they're great for immediate consumption, but don't travel well.

    Bisquick uses palm oil for fat. 'Nuff said.

    I'm quite surprised at how long this topic has gone, and how many responses there have been.

    I thought it would be toast by now.

    I'm the only one that mentioned cat head biscuits. I question the 'Southerness' of the membership! :silly: :silly: :silly: :tooth:

    Cathead biscuits are better than the rolled-out kind, for sure! Just pinch off a big chunk, hand-roll it into a ball, and lightly grease the outside. When they come out of the oven about 2 inches tall, slather on the butter and strawberry preserves, or cover 'em with sausage gravy! A thick slice of country ham works, also!

    Regional nomenclature - I'm pretty sure that what you describe as cathead biscuits are what farm folks everywhere used to bake. It was the only kind of biscuits we ever had, till about the sixties, so no adjectives were needed to describe which kind they were. :tooth:

    They're "choked off" rather than rolled and cut out. They're about the size of a cat's head.

    It's funny how different parts of the country have food dishes that are fairly unique to that part of the country, or at least have fairly unique names. In Colorado, the local delis have a dish known as Frog Eye Salad. I'm pretty sure there aren't any frog eyes in it, as it seems more of an orange jellow and whipped cream combination. Whatever it has in it, it's good.

    I even recall seeing something on TV about dishes that were only common to certain parts of the country, and the report specifically mentioned frog eye salad as being a Colorado favorite.

    The cat head biscuits sound like what I would call drop biscuits. Just pinch off a piece of biscuit dough and drop it on a baking sheet.

    That sounds like a side dish we eat often. It's a combination of Jell-O, cool whip, cottage cheese, and crushed pineapple.

    1 container Cool Whip
    1 container large curd cottage cheese
    1 package orange-flavor Jell-O (regular, not sugar free)
    1 can crushed pineapple, drained well

    Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Either serve immediately, or refrigerate for several hours to blend the flavors well. There won't be much left over!

    In my neck of Ohio, green peppers are called Mangoes. You made stuffed Mangoes. Not stuffed Peppers.......... No idea why.
