Apples-n-Onions; Orange Biscuits

Brunch today: fried apples-n-onions, German sausage, orange biscuits.

Fried apples-n-onions is pretty much exactly that. Sliced onions and apples (peeled or not, your preference) fried in butter until done (onions) and lightly browned (apples). Good with sliced kielbasa-style sausage (also fried in the same pan).

Orange biscuits is a lot harder but worth the work. Make your favorite rolled biscuit recipe as far as rolling it out; have handy 1/4 cup melted orange juice concentrate (previously frozen), sugar cubes, and a baking pan with melted butter in it.

Cut small biscuits, as small as an inch in diameter if you like. Roll the top and bottom of each biscuit in the melted butter and nestle them together in the pan. For each biscuit, quickly soak or roll a sugar cube in the melted previously-frozen orange juice concentrate and plop in the center of the biscuit. Bake according to your directions. But watch them closely: the sugar will burn just about the time the biscuits are lightly browned and done.

My brother was supposed to come over, which is why I went to the trouble, but he hasn't shown up.
