Chicken IN Biscuits

Posted by terrepruitt on April 19, 2022

Here is another “IDEA Recipe” as I didn’t write down the measurements when I made it. It was pretty good. It was just biscuits split in half and rolled out a little bigger, then “stuffed” with chicken. More accurately the chicken was sandwiched between the two biscuit halves then sealed. Since I was just experimenting I was making it up as I went a long and didn’t make notes. And I started with just splitting the biscuits, but then realized I wouldn’t be able to put a lot of chicken in them so I split them then rolled each half to make it larger. I was able to put more chicken in the larger ones.

I used

Canned chicken
onions chopped
bell peppers chopped
corn
seasoning

a tube of biscuits

some cheese

It may surprise you as it surprised me, I didn’t put any cheese IN the mixture. I sprinkled a little on top.  I keep wondering what I was thinking.

I cooked them according to the biscuit directions (350° F for 20 minutes) maybe given them a little more time until they were browned. The chicken is cooked so that wasn’t the concern, I just didn’t want soggy biscuits.

As usual I started cooking late thinking it would be a quick throw together kind of thing and it was not so I didn’t even take any pictures when they were plated. It was yummy and was enough for a couple of meals. You know me I love when I cook and it makes more than one meal.  This was easy to make, but I had not planned on the time it took to roll out the biscuits (which wasn’t that long, but it added time to what I had planned).

This is just a twist on a few of the things I have done with those biscuits I love.

What do you do with biscuits?

Kitty Beans

Posted by terrepruitt on April 15, 2022

When I took this I thought it was cute.  Just now when I went to post it I thought they looked like beans or half moons.  Then I realized they were kitty beans.  Ha, ha, ha, what?  Just me?

Today’s Friday Photo is two kitty beans!

Sweet Bouquet

Posted by terrepruitt on April 8, 2022

Flowers. Yay! I love flowers. It has been a bit since I got flowers from my hubby, so these were extra special.

As I am posting this he is “processing” some yard roses for the house.  (Trimming, debugging, finding vase(s), etc.)  More yay!

Flowers for a Friday Photo.

Foam Rolling, It Does A Body Good

Posted by terrepruitt on April 4, 2022

I have to just preach a quick moment. Foam rolling. You ever do foam rolling? Well, I only do it when I am so sore that I cannot walk well. And then that means it hurts a lot. I am not going to fib and say it doesn’t hurt, because it does. I believe that the idea is not to CRUSH the muscle but to massage it so it is important to carefully control the pressure. This post is not instructions on how to do it (I have a few posts on foam rolling), it is just a proclamation that if your muscles are sore from a workout you could probably benefit from foam rolling.

I was very sore this past week and I thought, “Hmmm, I should do some foam rolling. UGH, but it hurts so much. Well, it hurts because you only do it when you are already in pain . . . but you are going to do it.” And I did and I felt so much better.

I also realized another reason I don’t like to do them (foam rolling classes) and I adjusted that. There is some instruction that has the movement break down the leg in top-bottom so it is a lot less work rolling the leg. There is other instruction where the movement is the entire length of the thigh. I realized that is too much for my already sore arms/shoulders so I just broke it down. Now that I have that bit of knowledge I will just do that all the time and probably end up doing foam rolling more often.

Do you have a foam roller? Have you ever done any foam rolling?

Black Cat, Green Eyes

Posted by terrepruitt on April 1, 2022

If you are a pet owner you may agree that there can never be too many pictures of your pet. This green-eyed beauty is the subject of my Friday Photo. Teagan doesn’t care for her picture to be taken so right after this shot she wouldn’t look my way.

Ground Meat “Crumble Hack”

Posted by terrepruitt on March 16, 2022

I hate touching ground meat. But it is easier to use my hands to “crumble” it into the pan then to take up time standing at the stove “chopping” it up. I decided to give myself a head start. This helps get the meat broken up when it hits the pan.  I am sure I am not the ONLY one to have thought of it.  But, I wish I would have thought about this sooner.  Or more accurately, I wish I would remember this every time I deal with ground meat. I open the package and make slices in it. Hopefully posting this will help me remember this method.

I know they have those meat/chopper-in the pan things, but I have enough utensils.  Do you have one of those?  Do you crumble into the pan or use something to break it up while it is in the pan?

Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

Posted by terrepruitt on March 9, 2022

Pep talk, or what they call Peptok, from children, that is what you can get.  A friend on Facebook posted this and immediately I wanted to call to hear it, but then I paused and thought it might be a scam, but she was confident in it so I called. Kinda cute.

When you call there is a menu: “If you are feeling mad, frustrated, or nervous, press one. If you need to hear words of encouragement & life advice, press 2. If you need a pep talk from kindergartners, press 3. If you need to hear kids laughing with delight, press 4. . . . For encouragement in Spanish press 5.”

You can also press 6 to make a donation to support the project.

This is a public art project by West Side Elementary School in Healdsburg, CA.. I think it is pretty cool.

Did you call? What do you think?
