I took a nice long walk this afternoon and then came home and made the world’s easiest monkey bread (for one):
Chad had a tube of Grand’s biscuits in his fridge that I had my heart set on using for something other than biscuits.
I contemplated doughnuts but didn’t want to deal with the frying…so monkey bread it was!
World’s Easiest Monkey Bread for One
- One 10.5 oz. container of Grand’s biscuits
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1-2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter (melted)
- 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
- Splash of milk
- Grease a small oven-safe dish or mini bundt cake pan
- Combine sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside
- Melt butter in a bowl and set aside
- Pull apart biscuit dough piece by piece, rolling each piece into a little ball (try to make each ball approximately the same size)
- Roll each dough ball in the butter, then in the cinnamon sugar mixture
- Layer each ball into the prepared pan
- Baked on 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes or until nicely browned
- Allow finished monkey bread to cool then combine confectioner’s sugar and milk and top monkey bread with it
Before I knew it, it was time for dinner!
We kept things simple tonight beginning with some roasted potatoes (inspired by our trip to The Granary at Fearrington!):
We bought a bunch of tri-colored potatoes at Trader Joe’s the other night and simply sliced them up and tossed them in olive oil, salt and pepper.
Roasted in the oven at 425 for about 45 minutes…
To go with it we cooked up some chicken sausages which we had on whole wheat buns with ketchup and mustard:
And now it’s time for Bethenny Ever After!0
