Cover them with your favorite jam, whipped cream, or berries and get a yummy start to your day. If you missed haveing biscuits this morning, take a do-over during the week or have biscuits and gravy with dinner.

Dancing like a chicken, jumping like a frog . . . What next- Hopping like a kangaroo? El Morno has more moves than Richard Simmons these days.

A Swiss accordion player named Werner Thomas wrote the melody for the Chicken Dance song in the late 1950s. In 1963, he began performing it at his restaurant. The people who bravely stood up and danced along to the tune often used sporadic movements that reminded Thomas of ducks and chickens. By the time the Chicken Dance arrived in America in the 1970s, it had acquired set choreography with repetitive beak, wing, and tail motions.

  1. You know, I’ve been trying to eat healthier this week, which has involved eating fewer breads. So when I saw the word biscuits in your post title, I was overcome with a craving. I can resist, but, gosh, I DO love biscuits! Hope you, too, are having a wonderful Wednesday!

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • Be strong! Bread is my downfall. I would rather have my fill of the bread basket and skip the sweets!

  2. Biscuits — in moderation — are yummy, especially when drenched with honey or maple syrup! I can’t go biscuits and gravy, tho.

    Happy Birthday, Facebook and Mr. Z — while I don’t do fb, I do appreciate its story.

    Another thing I don’t do is the chicken dance! The first time I was exposed to that spectacle was at a wedding and was pretty much horrified. ‘Nuff said!

    • No gravy on my biscuits, either. Honey!
      I did the chicken dance a few times yesterday for the first time and it was actually kind of fun. Rascal was amused when I shook my tail feathers. I’ve never been to a wedding where the Chicken Dance has been requested but I might give it a flap. It’s so silly. And I’m a lot better at it if yesterday was any indication than I am the bunny hop. . .

  3. Morno,
    I’ve danced like a chicken under certain circumstances. Silly.
    Butternut biscuits are a winner.
    Facebook isn’t my thing, but I am obviously in the minority and I wish my son had thought of the idea first.
    Have a good one.

    • It is silly. But kind of fun.
      Funny- I still have hope for Cole. Don’t give up on your son all it takes is one app. :-D.
