Dense fog, rain, hot, cold and snow.

 Our parkway today looked totally eerie. This is a picture on the way home from work, we had dense fog here at the lake and the inlet of water as well. The fog hangs over the water. It reached 61 today and we had severe rain. So we broke records for the temperature from 99 years ago, the high was 56, and we broke it for rainfall as well. Thankfully it was not all snow!!!!! Though the snow is coming tomorrow. Blah!
Have you ever made sloppy joe and put it over rice instead of on a bun?? It tastes great! This is our dinner, some celery, onion, spices and ground beef with open pit sauce, over rice and bicolored corn! Yum. We are easy to please! :)

Cream Cheese Monkey Bread

 Here is my baking for the day. This is cream cheese monkey bread. A little different version than just plain, you tuck cream cheese into the biscuit dough and that is a hidden surprise for the bread! Mmmmm!

If you are interested in trying it, here is the recipe.
Cream Cheese Monkey Bread:
1 package of Philidelphia cream cheese (cut into small pieces)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon
3/4 cup melted butter
4- 8 oz rolls of Pillsbury Biscuits
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
Spray a bundt pan with nonstick spray or butter pan, and peel apart the biscuits. Put the sugars and the cinnamon into a zip lock baggie and shake the biscuit pieces in the baggie until all are coated.
Place the biscuit peices on the counter and tuck a piece of cream cheese into each ,wrapping the edges up around it(it won't be completely sealed in, that is fine). Start with a little of the sugar mixture and butter and then place the bottom biscuit row cream cheese side up and then the rest, cream cheese side down, layering with the remaining sugar and melted butter in between layers. At the end, dump remaining sugar mixture and butter on top. Bake for 45 minutes, cool for 5 and turn out onto a pan.

Doesn't it look delish?? Oey, goey, cinnaomon yumminess!!!!! With a nice cup of coffee or cold glass of milk........perfect! :)
