Last night was just such a night. The things I had to do during the day included taking down my fall decor and putting up the beginnings of Christmas -- just enough to begin to look a little bit festive. And then I also spent time at my dad's and did a bunch of other necessary tasks. No crafting got done except a bit of crocheting during a phone call, but with the busyness of the day otherwise I was thankful that supper was taken care of. This is the recipe I used for the soup: Fiesta Sweet Potato Soup. It's delicious!
For an accompaniment, I made Iron Skillet Biscuits which are a new favorite recipe of ours. I didn't make them in an iron skillet, but in a black speckled 9-inch square pan. This time I did try making them gluten free with the Bob's 1-to-1 baking flour, but the texture wasn't as good. I'd previously tried using 1 cup of regular flour and one cup of the Bob's 1-to-1, with great success, but I really need them to be gluten free for the sake of my joints, so I'd probably make them with all 1-to-1 again. As my husband pointed out, they were a lot better than no biscuits. And he's right.
Do give these biscuits a try. They taste a lot like Cracker Barrel's biscuits, but are actually even better, I think. And they use a minimum of ingredients, which is nice too.
What about you? Is your slow cooker already one of your kitchen helpers? If not, give it some thought. It could free up some time for you as it does for me. And, if you do use your slow cooker more during this busy season, maybe you have some recipes to share. I would love to see them!
