Mr. J's birthday was a few weeks ago. I am bit behind with writing about that celebration but I wanted to share these with you today. See one of the things Mr. J talked about doing for his birthday was going to Red Lobster. No this is not his favorite restaurant but they happened to be having their all you can eat shrimp feast. Mr. J loves shrimp and he loves all you can eat.
Well the weekend finally rolled around and we were all ready to go, like literally walking out the door, and he decided he didn't want to go. Now I could have cared less about going except for the fact that from the first time he mentioned it I thought of their famous cheddar biscuits. I could almost taste them. I really, really wanted those biscuits.
Well a few days past and I still couldn't get over the thought of these biscuits so I did some googling. There is lots of cheddar biscuit recipes out there. I picked one and I am sure glad I did. These were so easy to make and tasted fantastic. They are so cheesy and decadent. I could have just had a few of these for lunch. I know I will be making these again. Never will I NEED to go to Red Lobster just to get some biscuits.
