Sweet Cinnamony Biscuits ~ Poor Sick Puppy ~ Tongue Twisters

Good 43ยบ not raining morning. No rain last night either. SUP weatherpeople???? Pressure is down to 28. Come on... I cleaned up leaves yesterday just so it could rain~! Yeah yeah yeah, all that rain rhetoric on the tv and NADA! Not even anything on the radar!

I sent out this recipe I received from Mr. Food yesterday morning to a few friends and decided I NEEDED to make it...
1 (16.3-ounce) package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits)
1 (10.2-ounce) package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
4 teaspoons milk

So, naturally I modified the recipe... and used 2 packages of 8 biscuits. I also used about 3 T of melted butter and 1 cup of chopped pecans...... Also, I had dried blueberries instead of raisins.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray. 
Separate the large package of biscuit dough into 8 biscuits and the small package into 5 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces and place pieces in a large bowl. Pour melted butter over biscuit pieces.
In a small bowl, combine granulated sugar, raisins, nuts, and cinnamon. Sprinkle mixture over biscuit pieces and toss until evenly coated. Place dough into prepared Bundt pan. (You will have to do this with your hands and pull the stuck pieces apart in the process)

Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until center is firm. Let cool 10 to 15 minutes, then invert Bundt pan over a plate to release cinnamon ring.

In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and milk to make a glaze; drizzle over the ring and serve immediately.
I didn't do the frosting.... it really didn't need it!
This is where I pulled off a piece. OH MY GOSH. SOOOOOO GOOD~!!!!!!

You may not have heard of this unless you are Southern, or like me had a Daddy from the South... it's "pot liquor"... or potlikker! It is the essence of Southern ... the juices in the pot from cooking vegetables and sometimes with a little ham hock thrown in, is the pot liquor. My favorite is the liquid after cooking artichokes in water with lemon, olive oil, garlic powder, and salt & pepper. Drink it warm or room temp. Some good pot liquor is what is left when cooking peas or green beans or collard greens with a little butter!

So, I got this from Bill and Jeannie... poor sick puppy...

When you've got a dog and the poor thing is not feeling well, then leave it alone. Don't always think you can make it feel better by scratching its ears, patting or rubbing its tummy. I feel so sorry for an animal when I know it's not doing well, but hell, they're just like us when we're sick. We just want to lay down till it goes away. Check out the attached video and tell me you don't feel sorry for this puppy!!!!

All I know. Going to go get a piece of that yummy cinnamon/sugary biscuit! Happy Sunday. Ciao.

November 13th
National Tongue Twister Day
There was a fisherman named Fisher
who fished for some fish in a fissure.
Till a fish with a grin,
pulled the fisherman in.
Now they're fishing the fissure for Fisher.
One-one was a race horse.
Two-two was one too.
One-one won one race.
Two-two won one too.
Susan shineth shoes and socks;
Socks and shoes shines Susan.
She ceases shining shoes and socks,
For shoes and socks shock Susan.
And my favorite is a State Farm
