Sinfully Delicious Bacon Blueberry Pancakes
ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS!!!!! Bisquick, Sour Cream, 7-Up and Butter!!!
These are excellent!!!! So easy and soooo good!!!!
Recipe is hard to find so here it is:
7 UP BISCUITS
4 cups Bisquick
1 cup sour cream
1 cup 7-up
1/2 cup melted butter
Mix Bisquick, sour cream and 7 up.
Dough will be very soft - don’t worry
Knead and fold dough until coated with your baking mix.
Pat dough out and cut biscuits using a round biscuit / cookie cutter.
Melt butter in bottom of cookie sheet pan or 9x13 casserole dish.
Place biscuits on top of melted butter and bake @ 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until brown.
My ever lovely and ambitious fiance decided to raid the pantry and found a box of Gluen Free Bisquick pancake and baking mix. It had a recipe on the back to create cheesy biscuits.
First thing I noticed was that as soon as you try and split them in half to add butter they started turning into a pile of crumbs. The inside was a little bit soft, but still very crumbly. Which wasn’t the most surprising thing ever, but a little disappointing that it was quite so bad.
Also, not a big fan of the sandy texture, which is again way too common in gluten free stuff. Particularly the more mass market sorts of items. They had a passable enough flavor, but nothing to write home about. We probably wont try this one again.

… IF it’s hunger that you’re worried about this holiday season, don’t worry—fast-food giant McDonald’s also has some helpful hints.
Recently, the company’s “McResource Line” website advised workers how to cope with hunger, health and personal finances. Their advice included gems like: “At least two vacations a year can cut heart attack risk by 50 percent”; “Singing along to your favorite songs can lower your blood pressure”; “Breaking food into pieces often results in eating less and still feeling full”; and “Selling some of your unwanted possessions on eBay or Craigslist could bring in some quick cash.”
As absurd as it may seem that workers at the largest and most profitable fast-food chain in the country could be going hungry during the holidays, McDonald’s workers aren’t alone.
A study published in late October by the University of California-Berkeley Labor Center and the University of Illinois found that 52 percent of families of front-line fast-food workers were enrolled in one or more public assistance programs, compared with 25 percent of the workforce as a whole. As a result, taxpayers spend some $7 billion each year subsidizing the wages and benefits of fast-food workers.
That same month, McDonald’s worker Nancy Salgado, who has worked for the chain for 10 years, called the company’s McResource Line to ask for help. When she told the adviser on the other end of the line that she was having problems making ends meet—including not being able to pay for medical care for her children and having to ration food—she was given tips on…how to apply for various government programs.
Walmart, too, has been caught advising low-wage employees on how to apply for government assistance programs.
Salgado was arrested in October—after confronting McDonald’s President Jeff Stratton as he made a speech at Chicago’s Union League Club. Salgado shouted at Stratton, “It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day. Do you think this is fair—that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for 10 years?”
Stratton—who is estimated to make $2.5 million a year—replied: “I’ve been there for 40 years,” before Salgado was arrested and hauled out of the room.
Could McDonald’s, like Walmart, afford to give its workers a raise? Of course.
Like Walmart, McDonald’s corporate profits are built on paying employees “McWages”—little more than minimum wage, with few, if any, benefits. The average McDonald’s wage is $7.81 an hour—yet in 2012, the company ranked number 107 on the Fortune 500 list, with total profits of $5.5 billion.
As Salgado told The Real News' Jessica Desvarieux following her arrest: “[Stratton] needs to know what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living on.”
So regardless of what you think about the minimum wage debate, here’s one thing that needs to change. that people who work minimum wage jobs are stupid and lazy. I am honors college student working towards a doctorate(so not stupid or lazy by societal standards). I will share with you guys my experience working at Burger King, a minimum wage job
- Work 40 hour weeks
- expected to show up early if asked.
- stay 15-30 minutes past you shift everyday
- come in and work on your off days
- work 5-7 days a week
- work off the clock
- only get one 30 minute break no matter how long your shift was
- as a closer, often stay 1 hour past my scheduled shift
- treated like absolute shit by customers
- people yell and throw trays at you
- multiple burns from equipment and oil(not time to put a bandaid on though)
- Considered you are hurting the company if you work overtime(so shaming of hard workers, and not allowing extra pay to employees)
- mangers hate you
- work holidays, christmas eve, and the day after christmas(no extra pay for these days)
- often work short staffed( sometimes 2 to 3 people short!)
- have to take into account speed of service, waste, keep track of all 104 products at the same time, customer service, and keeping the store clean.(all at the same time!!)
- never allowed to stand still, or talk to fellow employees or even be friendly to customers for more than 2 minutes
- heaving lifting off boxes 50 pounds or heavier.
- while doing truck lifting over 250 boxes, then working 6 hours after
- no free meals even if covering shifts
So yeah not so easy. These workers aren’t lazy and stupid. It was a very tough job, one that i hated, and one that i got very little pay from for working there for so long and so hard.
The “second bill of rights”. Attributed to FDR, but timeless. And this is what the Tea Party fights AGAINST.
Tipping therefore has many purposes besides being an exploitive business model. It either shows affinity for comrades in the service industry, or is a duty done reluctantly by the bourgeoisie to stave off insurrection. It absolves sins and wrongdoing, so it’s religious. It is a guilt fee paid by the ill-conscienced for the immoral act of indulging in luxury. It is an act of dominance as it displays power through capital, and also an act of submission — a paid tribute offered to the service person. All of this is erotic and exciting, which accounts for the huge popularity of tipping…
The chance wages of the tip jar are mystical, undefined, practically psychedelic; therefore they are more attractive than the cold hard reality of the paycheck. The tip jar is therefore a symbol of worker passivity. This modern condition of a giant, impoverished “middle class” of service industry workers conspicuously trading generous tips with one another in a prolonged orgy of self-congratulation and simulated affluence must end.
