"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Biscuits (homemade or not) Molasses (homemade or not)
Take biscuit. Poke a hole in the biscuit being careful not to poke all the way through it. Pour in Grandma's Molasses to fill the hole. Eat. Enjoy.
One of my favorite snacks as a child - there was always an old cold biscuit around - (loved them hot the best but a cold one would do in a pinch) - Molasses was a treat when you couldn't afford sweets from the store - My Grandma King would give us grandkids a biscuit - poke it with her finger and pour the molasses in - tell us to go in the yard and eat it - course we fought the chickens and the flies and bees but we ran around till we ate it - licked our fingers and ran to the pump and pumped the water until it was cool and got us a drink and washed our face and hands - now that was some good eating.
