How would you like to receive that grade? I know that I would, and I did! I'll admit, the grade is not on a paper, assignment, or anything even remotely school oriented. I cannot say that it doesn't count, though. It was an encouragement to me, but I hope even more that it means that our friends who visited us this weekend were edified by our fellowship (or at least well-fed). As we said our goodbyes, they said that I had earned an A+, in hospitality!

After working diligently to stay on top of our studies, we freshened up our apartment and welcomed in our friends on Saturday. We watched a little football (of course, it's a fall Saturday, isn't it?) and then we showed them a bit of our town. We went to a local dive for lunch, and then took the scenic route home, before a walk through the neighborhood, dinner at home, and just a little bit more football before bedtime. Our three guests happily squeezed into our living room on the sofa and an air-mattress.

On Sunday we walked to church, and after the morning worship service, we meandered home through our neighborhood's annual fall street fair, enjoying a glorious fall day. All in all, it was an A+ weekend.

For such a short time with our friends, I didn't want to spend all of my time in the kitchen. While I was whipping up Beef Stroganoff and roasted broccoli for dinner on Saturday night, my friend whipped up these wonderful biscuits. They are so easy, and so good!

Sour Cream Biscuits

2 cups self-rising flour
2 sticks butter, melted
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons Herbes de Provence (or other herbs, optional)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the flour and butter. Add the sour cream and herbs and blend well. Spoon batter into greased muffin cups, filling 12 muffin cups half-way full, or 24 muffin cups for smaller muffins. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Pin It!

These look wonderful - and SO easy!! Thanks for posting the recipe. My sister and I have started a new tradition of cooking lunch together ever Wednesday... trying new cooking methods and such, and these will go perfectly with what we're planning for this week!

What a compliment as a hostess/host. Hospitality is a gift. I bought an air mattress that is elevated. When I stayed at my daughter's house after her baby was born, it was very comfortable. I was happily surprised. Good to be your friend at the Tasty Kitchen. :D

Lucy, I love your pics from the game! It looks like y'all had so much fun.

junebug, our apartment is tight, but we're glad we have an air mattress for visiting friends! We actually bought it out of necessity--when we moved in, our sofa could not make it up the three flights of stairs, and my mom was planning on sleeping on the sofa! Thanks for coming over to check out the blog.
