Tastes Like KFC

Made these wonderful beauties today!  Boy oh boy were they good.  Yes they do taste just like KFC in my opinion!


3 cups flour
2 tbsp. sugar
3 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. baking powder
1 1/3 cups milk
2/3 cup shortening


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to a mixing bowl and mix together well.
Make a well in the middle of your flour mixture.
Pour your milk into the well.
Dump in shortening to the flour mixture.
Blend well with a fork until all ingredients are incorporated.
Dump onto a floured surface.
Knead until smooth, only about 10 times.
Pat down to about 1/2 inch thick and cut out biscuits.
Place biscuits onto the baking sheet. Place them close together for softer biscuits and farther apart for a crispier texture.
Bake for about 10 to 14 minutes, or until tops are lightly brown.


Do you ever thank God when you walk into your kitchen and catch a glimps at that beautiful thing under the counter?  I have lived many places and years without a dishwasher, I now have one!  Now I just have to say that that overwhelming pile of dishes after dinner time no longer make me want to run and hide.  I fill the dishwasher and the sink is empty, in all of five minutes.  Well now here comes the part that makes me believe that my dishwasher is a super hero!  

When your young kids have that nasty cough and snotty nose, yet they are still all over their toy, you imagin how much germs are spread.  Well did you know that you can put those plastic toys in the dishwasher to sanatize them?  Just make sure you do air dry if your dishwasher has the option or stop it before the drying option.  

Next on the how cool list is your toothbrushes!  You can santize them in there as well by putting them in like a mesh bag and let them go.  You can also sanatize your combs and brushes this way too.

Lastly, the best option for cleaning your dishwasher is to pour vinager in the bottom when empty and run it through a cycle.  This helps get rid of lime build up as well as give it a boost in its sanitation.

Sometimes I lay in bed wondering about my day as I drift off to sleep. Other times my mind is plagued with far to much on my mind. It is like a running list that never ends. However, I can’t go to sleep till it does end. Then there are the nights that the thought of sleeping brings fear and sadness. 

Fear of reliving the past over again. jumping up in a horrid sweat trying to figure out if it was really happening again. That only brings on the sadness of remember the past that you fear so much. 

Sometimes you just want to go to sleep quick before you have to much time to think of the sadness. You want to be asleep before you break. 

These two of nights I lay in my bed until my eyes take over and close themselves. If my mind is to tired to fight for me to stay awake, it will be to tired to torment me in my dreams.

Ran out of Dishwasher soap

So I ran out of soap for my dishwasher and didn’t realize it. With as many kids in my house dishes need done a lot. So I search online and found an alternative. 

3 drops of dish soap
Then fill the cup 2/3 full of baking soda
Finally fill rest of the way with salt

I was surprised it actually worked pretty well. I am happy to be able to use this in the future.
