Whole Wheat Soda Biscuits

If you follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook, then you know that I started officially potty training my 2 year old. That means no diapers on her tiny little hiney. So far so good I think….I almost lost my patience after she had her 4th accident but then my husband got home from work and he took over. I think that may just be my favorite part of the day-when my husband gets home. That and bedtime. I’ll keep you posted on the potty training thing and my correlating sanity. That should be fun. Ha! Anyways…..

With tomorrow being St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to tap into my husband’s Irish heritage, declare it my own and make some baking soda biscuits to celebrate the occasion. Now, the traditional soda biscuits are very simple-being made with flour, salt, baking soda and milk and without all the American add-ins like sugar and butter. So, I guess that makes these fake Irish soda biscuit. But, they are awfully tasty! Who doesn’t love a sweet buttery biscuit?

Ok, it’s not THAT buttery and I added in whole wheat flour. So, they are pretty figure friendly. And, because they are drop biscuits, once the dough is made, you just scoop ’em and bake! No rolling! Of course you could take the time and cut out your biscuits, but I didn’t have the patience for that after having my daughter standing on a chair ‘helping’ me and then getting peed on. Ahhh….the joys of motherhood.

    Love the whole grains in this biscuit. Re the potty training: When my 2nd was 2, I tried but he was having accidents, so I quit. I changed him often, so he wouldn’t get used to the feeling of dirty diapers. Every time I changed him, I told him not to worry, he would soon be like Daddy and older brother and would be using the potty just like them. A few months later, he just ripped off his diaper and started using the potty. Never had an accident and was dry at night too. I used the same approach for my first, and he was potty trained at 2. For this method, you must keep them dry in their diapers and continually talk it up to them in a positive way. Sure makes life simple when you don’t have to worry about accidents. Hope this helps.
