Wow, I am actually feeling a little normal today.
Yes, my nose is still very stuffy and coffee still tastes lousy
but the body aches and runny eyes are a thing of the past.
I hung out in the kitchen all day.
I did some much needed cleaning and organising in my cabinets.
I watched Eclipse on the little kitchen television. Twice.
I sat at the newly clothed table and read some blogs and emails.
I packed away some Christmas dishes
and I brought out the pretty snowmen plates.
I rearranged my cookbooks.
I made a pot roast in the slow cooker
and a yummy new desert called Pull Apart Apple Bread.
Needless to say the family loved it!!!
Here is the recipe.
1 (21-ounce) can COMSTOCK® or WILDERNESS® More Fruit Apple Fruit Filling
2 (1-pound 3-ounce) packages refrigerated biscuits
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon confectioners' (powdered) sugar
1 tablespoon milk
Heat oven to 400°F (205°C). Lightly grease a 10-inch tube pan. In food processor, chop fruit filling by pulsing several times. Flatten each biscuit into a 5 to 6-inch circle. Spoon about 2 Tablespoons fruit filling onto each biscuit and seal edges to form a ball.
In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Roll each biscuit ball in sugar mixture. Make 2 rings of biscuits in tube pan and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
Bake for 55 minutes, covering biscuits with foil after 20 minutes of baking time.
Cool on wire rack 5 minutes; loosen biscuits from edge of pan and remove from pan.
In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and milk; blend well. Drizzle over warm biscuits. Serve.

As for the rest of this calm night
I think I will go join the doggies and chill out for a while.
Have a great night.
