Do you remember home economics? Maybe I’m dating myself a little here. When I was in grade 7 I had to take Home Ec. The only thing I remember clearly from that class was that we made baking powder biscuits and I quite liked them. I still have the text book from that class so I dug it out and thought I might relive the memory of grade 7 home ec by baking Baking Powder Biscuits.
I really wish the Brunette were taking Home Ec. It makes me so nervous when he is in the kitchen. There are so many sharp and hot objects in there, and I am certain that some of my kitchen safety awareness came from taking Home Ec. But I digress.
The “textbook” we had for this class was printed courtesy of the Manitoba Sugar Producers. I’m sure I could write a whole host of blog posts on why it’s little scary that the Sugar Producers were able to influence my education in grade 7, but that’s not the kind of blog I write. Again, I digress.
The recipe is pretty uncomplicated, and I made the Butterscotch variation of it. The ECBF liked them just fine. They’re not the most gorgeous rolls I’ve made (need I remind you of these), but they are quick and easy and would do in a pinch if you wanted something simple.
Note the big stain on the page. Apparently I wasn’t as neat in grade 7 as I am now.
What I found most interesting about this little stroll down memory lane was the section of the textbook on how to set the table. This is another skill I wish the school would impart on the Brunette. Wishful thinking I suppose 😉
