8 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground pepper
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces (is use salted butter cut salt back to 1 tsp)
2 cups buttermilk
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat ovento 450 degrees. In a large beol, combine first four ingredients. Cut in butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and cheddar and stir just till mixture comes together. Turn dough out onto floured surface and divide dough into halves and pat each into a rectangle. Set aside one rectangle and cover with a clean towel. Using your hands, fold, flatten and repeat till dough has been folded over 4 times. Pat out to 1" thick. Cut biscuits using a 2" cutter. Repeat with remaining dough. Reroll any scrap till all dough is used. Transfer biscuits to baking sheets and bake till golden, about 14 to 18 minutes. Makes about 24 biscuits.

We Welcome Strays

When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping"; now we just "chunky dunk"

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”
