Biscuits and bubble wrap

I am so thankful for the crazy people at Crock Pot who sent me another replacement for my stoneware insert, which arrived on Friday, despite the foot of snow we received, right on time, and was wrapped in the longest strip of the craziest, humongous, bubble wrap ever.  Not to mention the huge box it was in which is now currently a space ship parked in our living room operated by Buzz Lightyear, his co-pilot Belle, and a tiny ballerina who I believe was just a passenger.  Seriously, this piece of bubble wrap did its job and then some.  It was wrapped around the stoneware insert so many times it was larger than a King Size pillow.  After we unwrapped it and lined our living room floor with it, we used it as a trampoline/dance mat and then Richard and I took a brief nap on it.  We may use it to replace our current mattress as it was more comfortable than the one on our bed.  Then the bubble wrap made its way to the space ship for a roof of some sort and provided such entertainment that I will be sad to see it go on recycle day.  Snow Days = great days for creative entertainment, Amen.

On another note, Happy Saturday, hope your day was happy!  We enjoyed another snowy day with sunshine today so we headed out to do some sledding and play the “how many times can mom dress the baby in her snow gear and take her inside/outside etc.”  Good times.  FYI running with said snow gear clad baby in snow boots/deep snow is a great work out.  I skipped the Jillian today and called it good after a few laps.  We started off this chilly Saturday with a  yummy family favorite breakfast of biscuits and gravy.

These biscuits are based on a recipe given to me by my sister which I think she found online and I modified it to healthily it as much as a biscuit can be healthy.  We love them warm with butter/jam but today we also had sausage gravy.  From a mix.  Which just about makes me cringe because the ingredient list is WAY too long and not full of things I like.  However, all that to say, it is the best sausage gravy we have found and I have tried lots of homemade recipes, but they all taste like flour/icky.  So, if you have a yummy homemade gravy recipe, let us know!   I am not giving up.

Enjoy these heart shaped biscuits by using cookie cutters or cut them with a biscuit cutter/small glass or just use your pizza cutter to make scored lines and bake them in rectangles.
