So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday's Meal

Or perhaps it should be Monday morning's meal. This might be good to keep on hand for Thanksgiving or Christmas morning (or just any morning you want your children to grovel at your feet). It requires canned biscuits although you could probably just as easily use a dry biscuit dough. If you do use canned biscuits, choose the cheapest ones available because, trust me, no one will notice. I have seen this recipe all over so you may already have it but, if not, give it a try. The Chick does whatever I say when I make this. Possibly the only thing that tops it is home made cinnamon rolls in her eyes. I suppose it could also be dessert-like or a good brunch addition too.

Monkey Bread

1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tubes (7.5 oz.) of canned biscuits or equivalent biscuit dough

4 tablespoons margarine, melted
1 teaspoon water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a zipper bag or bowl with tight fitting lid. Cut each biscuit into quarters (or pinch off pieces of dough about that size). Add to bowl or zip bag. Shake to coat well.
Pour into greased 9x9 pan (or I use a bundt pan sometimes).
In a small mixing bowl combine topping ingredients. Pour over biscuit pieces.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes. (It usually takes slightly longer in my oven. Check by pulling a middle piece out and checking for doughiness.)
Invert onto a plate to serve. Be careful! The topping is liquid initially and will burn.
