*One of the nice things about getting this out a few days later is that I can somewhat review the recipes we’ve tried. The biscuits did not work. /sigh

These biscuits, however, did!

**We’re having so much chicken because I found a GREAT deal on whole organic chickens a few weeks ago. There were six of them marked down for quick sale and I was able to get them all, bring them home and throw them in my deep freezer. I ❤ my deep freezer!!!

***I didn’t get this done last week. There is SO. MUCH. that I haven’t gotten done the last few weeks. /sigh
It’s only a season. heh…I must keep reminding myself of that.
