the one with the remix.

03 February 2012

the one with the remix.

let me set the scene . . .
it's morning. it's just me, miss lindsey & my spitfire 5 year old, andrew.
{friday is his day off from preschool.}

well i, all of the sudden, had a hankering for some homemade biscuits.
yall know the ones i'm talking about, right?!?!
great, big ol' mouth watering cathead biscuits like mawmaw used to make.
fresh from the oven. slathered in butter & honey.
biscuits so dang good you wanna slap your momma right in the mouth.
soo wee.

yep, i needed me some biscuits.
i was in luck because i had myself a handy dandy helper.
and that's a good thing, cause we made a big ol' mess.
naturally, while our biscuits were baking, we started cleaning up our mess.

so there we are, running a sink full of soapy water, and andrew breaks out in song.
now i knew i had heard the melody, but it took me a minute to place it.
yall know how little kids sing - kinda off beat and somewhat sporadic.
well once i figured it out, i started cracking up and knew i had to tell yall.

without further ado . . . andrew's remix:
just clean it.
clean it.
no one likes dirty dishes.
dip them in water, put them inside.
it doesn't matter what food you like.
just clean it, clean it, clean it.

i, rachel, am one proud momma.
the boy can help make homemade biscuits, clean up his mess AND be happy enough to sing about it.

Pin It!

I think we are going to start singing Just Clean It in our home, too. I bet your biscuits are better than mine. Mine are always flat.

Oooh, they look so good! But I agree.... I don't see this recipe in your side bar! Is it a family secret, or can you share? Love the happy cleaning song too by the way!

I didn't grow up in the south and I don't know how to make good biscuits. Yours in the picture looked real good. Can you tell us how to make them?
