Daily Dough

Remember the 10 Super Easy Recipes I posted a while back? Well, I have been using the Angel Biscuits from that post a lot!
On Sunday, I had scheduled to eat those biscuits for lunch (See my March menu.) so I went ahead and whipped them up early to eat some for breakfast as well.
So here's how a day of dough might look:
7:30am--Throw all the ingredients for your Angel Biscuits together. Pull out a handful of dough to use for breakfast biscuits, throw those on a pan, and cook them for 15-20 minutes on 400 degrees. Put the rest of the dough in the fridge.
Scramble some eggs and cook up some sausage to go with your biscuits.
Put a whole chicken in the crockpot with lots of seasonings and olive oil.
12:30pm--Get home from church and dig out another big handful of the dough. Roll the cold dough into rolls and put it on a pan. Stick it in the oven for 15-20 minutes on 400 degrees. Shake some flour on the counter, add some flour to the dough and roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough using a pizza cutter or knife into one-inch squares. Pour some chicken stock into a pot (about 8 cups) and bring to a boil. Add the dumplings and allow to boil for about 20 minutes.
Take the chicken out of the crockpot, steam some veggies, and serve up rolls, chicken and veggies for lunch.
After lunch, debone the rest of the chicken and put some of the leftover chicken into the pot with the cooked dumplings. Throw in some frozen corn, peas, and whatever leftover veggies you had for lunch. Make sure the stove is turned off and leave the pot alone until dinner time.
6pm--Turn the chicken and dumplings on medium heat to warm up. If desired saute some mushrooms in a little butter to add some umph to your chicken and dumplings.
Serve up the one-pot wonder for dinner.
