Comfort Food

Two days ago D. had a heat stroke and had to have nine stitches because of it. I've been really stressed for some time, due to constant hospitals and doctor visits. I am trying to think and be positive, which is a bit stressful because I am not a positive person by nature. I know that sounds weird, being positive is stressful, but for me, it is. :(

Today I was wanting some comfort food, the kind my mom and grandma used to make. I made chicken noodle soup and a new biscuit recipe that turned out to be awesome delicious.
The biscuits are made with Bisquick, sour cream, 7 UP, and butter:
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7 UP
1/4 cup butter

Mix sour cream into Bisquick mix, add 7 UP, roll out onto floured board, (I sprinkled some Bisquick onto my board) cut them into squares and place in melted butter in pan. Bake at 450 until golden on top.
You can find this recipe on the Bisquick site.
The chicken noodle soup, I used a crockpot chicken noodle recipe I got from Pinterest.

Hi Glynis,

Yes, I absolutely do want to read your blog!!! I'll send you my email address.

I think you may be right, sometimes it is impossible to be anything at all. I want to be more positive. It's hard with all that is going on, no other option but to keep on trying. :)

Thanks so much for the wonderful comment! It means a lot.

Love ya!

It's true, Cat - some times comfort food is just the right medicine for the fix. :)

Happy Saturday to you sweet lady!
