What Kind of Southern Girl Am I????

So this was the sad result of my attempt at making biscuits this morning.  They tasted better than they look.  As a matter of fact, on a scale of 1 to 10 Jorge originally gave me an "8".  Until I told him how they were supposed to look.  Then he lowered my score down to a "5".  Still not too bad considering.

I had a few obstacles to overcome right from the beginning.  The recipe calls for buttermilk and self rising flour.  I don't have either so I had to look on-line for recipes on how to make them.  The recipe for buttermilk called for vinegar or lemon juice and I didn't have either one, so I used lime juice.  On top of that the recipe was for 2 dozen biscuits which I really didn't want.  So I cut the recipe in half .  I never did get a consistency that I could roll out so I just blobbed them onto the pan.

I still have hopes of seeing something like this coming out of my oven:

So, I'll keep trying! 

I want to see if some day I can get a "10".   I hope I don't get too fat in the process!
