Almond Rosemary Biscuits
Ok everyone, I’m going to keep this post on the short side. Mostly because I’m super tired. It was a late night last night staying up watching True Blood…please tell me I’m not the only one completely questioning why I still watch that show? Coming off watching Games of Thrones, True Blood just doesn’t compare. Anyways, after the show I was wrapped up in my book only to turn over and realize it was midnight…why do I do that to myself?! Then I was woken up at 2am by a little girl telling me she loved me as she tapped me on my shoulder. Can’t be too angry when your munchkin wakes you up telling you she loves you. A quick bathroom break and tucked her back in bed and then I was back in bed only to be woken up 3 1/2 hours later by my alarm clock telling me to get my butt up so I could get to my morning WOD. I must really love CrossFit….those were my husbands words but honestly…I do love CrossFit. It’s my little addiction.
Speaking of addictions, biscuits used to my addiction before going Paleo. Actually bread in general was my addiction. Loved it. It’s nice to say LOVED because now I really don’t have a desire. On occasion though I do miss it. On those occasions I make Paleo versions. These biscuits I think are my favorite so far when it comes to a Paleo form of bread. The rosemary really makes these in my opinion. The great thing is you could play around and add something else. I was thinking if you added cinnamon these could be a great breakfast treat. These are super fast and easy to make, another bonus on my list. The little ones and I whipped these up on Sunday morning as part of Daddy’s breakfast. I even had an assistant when taking the photo’s. I think I have two photographers and stylist in the works. Every time I’m working on a shot they are right there. I was photographing something tonight and they were right there with their cameras taking pictures. Makes me giggle inside. I snapped the below picture of my stylist preparing the shot. She was quite into it and wouldn’t let me take the picture unless the rosemary was placed just right. So I’ll let you be the judge if my stylist did a good job….and I’ll also let you be the judge of these biscuits too. We thought they were pretty high on our list of Paleo treats. Enjoy!
