Two things regarding last night's biscuits

1. Our new cheese-grater is a transcendent experience. Oh, it's such a lovely little thing. It's got a wooden handle that feels nice in my hand, and you move the grater instead of the cheese, and I don't know if I will ever be using our old cheese-grater again. So much quicker. So much easier. Requires hand-washing because of the nice wooden handle, but it's so easy to hand-wash that I can't think this will be a significant drawback.

2. This particular biscuit recipe had been sitting in my recipe file unused. It was for Parmesan-basil biscuits. I thought that white cheddar and garlic would go better with the rest of dinner. They were fine. Fine-ish. They were quite edible, and in fact 11 of the dozen were et by the housemonkeys, the godchildren, and their parents last night. But they were thoroughly uninspired and not the least bit what a fresh, warm garlic-cheese biscuit should be.

"You know what I think is wrong with these?" I said, chewing on the last of my biscuit. "I suspect, in retrospect, that the recipe may have been written attempting to be low-fat."

"Hey!" said Robin. "No name-calling!"
