"Mother's Killer Biscuits"...  These biscuits are really awesome. Been making them for over 30 years. A family holiday staple. You need 2 packages of Grands biscuits, 1 cube butter, a bundt pan. Arrange biscuits in a circle in the pan on their side. Melt butter in microwave (30 seconds) and pour over the biscuits. Bake at 350º for approx 30-37 minutes (depending on you oven and altitude... mine took 37) until dark golden brown on top. Put on rack to cool. After about 10 minutes turn out onto a plate.
You make these, and you will thank me!
Back a ways, when Dan and Brian and the kids came over,I filmed this 40 second video of Sami and her BFF Dana on my shaking machine...

They certainly had a good time!
Yesterday I made up another concoction..
I used the rest of that cilantro lime shrimp from Costco and some mini squash...

Dried spinach and bell peppers from Amazon, 4 cheese Alfredo, and mushrooms....

Rotini, made with pureéd zucchini and spinach....

Sauté the squash in olive oil, season with Trader Joe's 21 Spice Salute, and Lawry's Garlic Salt.. Add mushrooms and shrimp and heat through...

Add Alfredo sauce, stir in some of the dried spinach and bell peppers, cooked pasta. Stir well and add mozzarella cheese...

OMGOOOOOD!!!!  That, a glass of wine, and football~

Football tonight....

All I know. Happy Monday. Nuff said. Ciao.

LOL Love your Clintoon jokes!

I am glad I came across your blog on FB today as you didn't send it to me. :)

I have made your mom's biscuits and they are delicious and very simple to fix. I love simple and easy. :)

Oh yes! We made the San Gabriel Mission out of styrofoam. Dad put little trees around it too. We went there and took photos of the twins and they put the photos in their written report. Thankfully Matthew didn't have to do that last year.

Funny jokes- will pass on the sardines. Darwin is certainly one of the more interesting characters of history.

The materials to make missions in 4th grade have definitely been upgraded. We studied Missions- but I do not remember a very important detail- they were not just religious institutions. They were strategically placed to stop the southward colonization of California by the Russians. Learned that in the Santa Barbara Mission garden last year.

I could have those biscuits right about now. What a great idea.
