For my honey...

Another year.... another Valentine's day.
This one not much different from last year's :-) accept maybe that my sweetheart is a little sick. I made him this special breakfast of homemade buttermilk biscuits and scrambled eggs.
The biscuits were very easy to make, incredibly flaky and wayyyy better than anything that comes out of a can! If you don't like eggs try the biscuits with butter and some fruit preserves.

(prep time 40 mins)
(enough for 2)
Buttermilk Biscuits

Flour 1/3 cup
Honey 1/2 Tbs
Salt 1/4 tsp
Baking powder 1/4 tsp
Baking soda 1/4 tsp
Buttermilk 1/3 cup
Shortening or Butter 3 Tbs (very very cold and chopped up in tiny pieces)

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Stir in the honey and the shortening/butter.
Work with a fork and mix until the flour resembles coarse crumbs.
Pour in the buttermilk and combine well with a fork.
Take this mixture out on a floured surface and knead gently. Don't overdo this step.
Use your fingers and spread out the dough into a 1" thick circle.
I used a heart shape cutter and made 2 biscuits.
Lightly brush a little butter over the biscuits.
Bake for 5 mins. Turn the heat down to 400 degrees and continue to bake for another 13-15 mins.

Scrambled Eggs

While the biscuits are baking you can make the eggs anyway you want. I made mine the following way.

Eggs 3 large
Chopped red peppers 2 Tbs
Chopped shallots 1 Tbs
Peas 3 Tbs
Jarlsberg Cheese 4 Tbs (shredded)
Coarse Pepper 1/2 tsp
A little butter for cooking

Heat the butter in a frying pan.
Whip the eggs, the veggies, salt and pepper together in a bowl.
Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook until eggs are set.
Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs and allow to melt.

Done :-)
I spilt the biscuits in half spread a little butter and placed the eggs in between the 2 halves.
