Obligatory Fictional Backstory

So you might be wondering what happened to me and why I haven’t posted in almost a year. Well, I’ll tell you, but you might not believe me….

I was abducted by aliens.

Yup, you read that right. They kidnapped me and demanded that I teach them how to make all the delicious Earth foods they’ve read about. Just like what happened to Duff Goldman.

They finally let me go when I created this garlic cheddar biscuit recipe for them. I remembered having these biscuits at my favorite seafood restaurant back on Earth, and remembered that they were the pinnacle of biscuitry. I set out to mimic the recipe.

One bite, and their leader proclaimed my garlic cheddar biscuits superior to all other Earth foods, and as soon as they understood the recipe they sent me on my way. Wish I had thought of it sooner.

Real Talk

Being abducted by aliens would almost have been preferable to what actually happened….almost a vacation in comparison! Let me break it down:

January – March: House hunting

March: Started playing TTRPGs which took up my writing time, but my extroverted self really needed a scheduled social interaction so that was good.

April – May: House improving (got a good one but it needed a TON of upgrade/repairs)

May: Moved in! Yay!

Also May: Husband’s work decided that he and his department do not need to have basic human rights, and begins working him 92 hours a week. This has continued, though he has decided to take one day off so he’s only working a mere 80 hours a week now.

June-ish?: Dog starts allergy injections every 3 days. Poor thing is allergic to life. This is relevant because it added to the growing list of things I, a person with ADHD, need to keep track of. If you have ADHD you understand that this is a big deal. I also dealt with some health issues somewhere in this timeframe.

July: Only God remembers. Fireworks or something.

August: I begin homeschooling the kiddos. On top of everything else.

September: Actually not much, but trying to settle into a routine. Began thinking about writing again.

October: Decided that life was not chaotic enough and my dog needed a friend. Got a Pomeranian. Big dog begins jumping the fence to roam the neighborhood, presumably to protect the Pom from any foul creatures that might be on the path. Namely squirrels.

November: My sister mentioned something about a biscuit recipe and I said “I’ve already got one” in my worst possible French accent. Then realized I had promised this recipe “soon” about 5 months ago. And here we are.

I hope you enjoy this copycat cheddar bay biscuit recipe! I hate to promise that I’ll be able to continue on anything resembling a schedule, but if you follow our Facebook page or sign up for email notifications you’ll see when I post a new recipe. I also post random recipe-like substances on Facebook periodically, so check it out!
