It was a snow day here in Texas! I heard freezing rain in the middle of the night and then by morning it had changed to snow. The girls and Benjamin were playing outside by 7:30am.
Emily's prize winning snowball! Now she just needs a coat. ;0)
Grace is catching snowflakes on her piece of black velvet.
Benjamin lost a top tooth this week!
There was just enough snow for Grace to build a mini snowman.
Even Phillip had a snow day today and worked from home. I'm starting to get my energy back so for dinner I made Jenny's Grandma's Chicken, along with biscuits and gravy.
Jenny's Grandma’s Chicken
1 whole chicken, cut up
1 large sliced onion
5 carrots, in large chunks
5 potatoes, in large chunks
1 large bouillon cube
Brown chicken. Add vegetables, and just enough water to cover. Cover and cook 45-60 minutes.
Jenny’s notes: I bake it instead of simmering it on the stove. Brown the chicken and just put in a casserole with a little bit of water. Cook for about an hour at 350.
Jenny, it was delicious, thank you for the recipe!!
These biscuits are sweet, crisp and tender.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 to 5 tablespoons butter (depends on how healthy you feel!)
1 cup buttermilk
1. Preheat oven to 450F.
2. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and either incorporate into the flour using a pastry blender or rub the butter between your fingers, until thoroughly blended.
3. Use a large spoon to stir in the buttermilk, just until mixture forms a ball. Turn the dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead it 10 times, no more. If it is very sticky, add a little flour, but don't worry if it sticks a bit to your hands.
4. Press into a 3/4 inch-thick rectangle and cut rounds with a biscuit cutter or glass. Gently reshape leftover dough and cut again. This recipe will produce about 10 biscuits.
5. Bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until the biscuits are a beautiful golden brown. Serve within 15 minutes for them to be at their best.
I hope you all are doing well and keeping warm!
