Use It Up 3

This time the find in the pantry was Bisquick. It's been there a long time, and I don't know why I ever bought it, because I don't even like Bisquick. It's just as quick to make your biscuits and things from scratch, and I like to make them with half whole wheat flour.

Yes, it's been around a while.
But what's going to go bad in Bisquick?

I froze lots of blueberries the last two summers. I googled "recipe Bisquick blueberry muffin" and made these for breakfast. Everyone loved them. Unfortunately they didn't use up nearly all the Bisquick, but if it's kept this long, it's good for a few more batches in the next weeks.

Quote of the Day:
[Since we all miss Ben who is now at Bible school. This happened maybe a month ago.]
"Last night Ben was like, 'Where's my flashlight?' Click click, turns on his flashlight, shines it around looking for his flashlight. I was like, 'Ben, isn't it in your hand?' He's like, 'Uh...yeah.'"

    Sounds like a good resolution for me too. I threw away some jello and a pudding mix plus some outdated spices in the last couple of days. Won't even confess how outdated. When Maria was organizing the pantry she found three different kinds of partially used rice, and three partial bags of chocolate chips. I did clean out most of my kitchen draws last weekend. That is a start toward being a bit more organized.

  3. I found a couple recipes last month for impossible pie...and guess what they took? Bisquick! Pumpkin Impossible Pie...definately going to do that again to use up my Bisquick that I rarely use.

  4. Yes, impossible pies and quiches are good for using up bisquick. And just a note, maybe you bought the bisquick because you wanted to make a specific recipe that called for it? I was told that per cup of bisquick, one can substitute 1 cup flour, 2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp sugar. That's what I use in the few recipes I have that call for bisquick and it works great.
