Hi. So, I have the flu. It sucks. I have been fighting a fever since I woke up for work on Thursday night. And yes, I did work. Its a long story. Now, before I go any further, if I have already told this story, I apologize. High fevers do things to your thinking process. The reason I say that is that as I started writing this I felt as if I had already written it, and I started looking at the posts from the past couple of days and there was nothing there...and then it dawned on me. The other blog...I wrote it there. So if you read it there I apologize. If now this is the short version...I have the flu. It sucks. I found some old Tamiflu and asked a couple of people at work if they thought it was still good. They did. I started taking it when I got home Friday morning. I still feel like shit, but not nearly as bad as I would have if I never started the Tamiflu. That shit is the BOMB!! I can totally tell when its time to take the next dose too - everything starts aching again. Like it is now.
So this is gonna be a short and sweet post.
But first...some business. There is a major event going down this week. You may have noticed the background...or not. Anyway, look at it and you can figure it out. So Thursday isn't going to be totally Thirsty. And I am thinking about playing some of my favoritest songs for you all...but then, I already kind of have been doing that anyway. I don't know. I just want the aching and headache to stop. And the fever. Holy hell. That is the worst.
So today's recipe is something that I just threw together the other day. On New Year's Day I was getting my new toys out that I got for Christmas...the deep fryer and the food processor...and trying to find places for them to live. I was also trying to figure a better flow in the kitchen too, and I moved a bunch of stuff around AND found homes for my new stuff!! Anyhow, I found my little ramekins that I got this past autumn and I had an idea. This was the idea. I didn't actually MAKE anything from scratch, I just threw it together. And it was super easy, which is good, because of the plague currently inhabiting my body.
Easy Pot Pies
So, this is what I did. I took a can of chunky style soup (as I was making chicken pot pies and I happened to find a can of chicken pot pie soup...well...). I divided the soup between four ramekins. Then I took a can of large refrigerator biscuits and placed one on each of the ramekins. Then I baked them at 400 degrees F for about 15-20 minutes - until the biscuit turned golden brown. And that was it. Two minutes of prep time, twenty baking and boom. Done. And the cool think is you can make these as meaty or as veggie as you want...it just depends of the type of soup you choose.
So that's it. Let my birthday week begin.
And here's your moment of zen.
