Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits (copycat)

Now that summer is here are you planning on any vacations this year or are you planning on keeping close to home. It is such a difficult decision. As we watch the numbers rise in some of the southern US states we are considering traveling a bit but not to those areas but rather to areas such as New York where the numbers are way down. We all need a change of scenery after being basically home for 3 1/2 months.

We normally travel quite a bit, pre-pandemic, by car so we are thinking with some care we could probably work something out this summer. Taking our own food with us for traveling, cleaning the room at the hotel – door knobs, faucets, light switches, counters, night stands, etc… before any of us touch anything, using lysol for the other areas, and limiting eating out. We will probably get a suite so we can have a kitchenette for the refrigerator and cooking.

What are your plans?

Verdict: Though these are not the real Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits they are good enough for us. They pair well with grilled and roasted meats. The butter and garlic brushed over the top is the best part! Yum!

Tip: Biscuits are best served immediately after cooking. They can be stored in a plastic bag but lose some of their freshness.

    I’m not trying to be funny but I heard that on the news regarding driving instead of flying, bringing your own food, cleaning your own room and limiting housekeeping. If you have to do all that, what’s the point in going? Where’s the vacation?

      We are planning on all those things. Change of scenery (location), ability to visit family (social distancing) – we live 10 hours from our closest family, and

        I just meant that it sounds more like work than a vacation, except if you’re camping and you’d be expected to most of that anyway, lol.
