Blueberry biscuits

We just had the best blueberry biscuits for breakfast this morning. I found the recipe on one of my favorite blogs Biblical Womanhood. Here is the recipe:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4tsp baking soda
mix together in a bowl

cut in 4 tbs butter

add in
1 cup milk

Stir until lightly combined, then fold in
1 cup blueberries

Pat out carefully on a heavily floured surface until 3/4 inch thick. Cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter and place on a heavily buttered baking sheet. Bake at 425 for 10 - 15 min. or until lightly golden.

While biscuits are baking stir together the following ingredients for a glaze:
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 -4 tbs milk
1/4 tsp vanilla

Drizzle glaze over biscuits as soon as you pull them out of the oven. Serve hot with butter.

Diaper deals

I hit the diaper jackpot today!! My husband is amazed that I bought all the diapers I bought for the amount I spent. Walgreens had diapers on sale this week for 5.99. They also had a coupon in the July Easy saver catalog and the August Easy Saver Catalog. Today and tomorrow you can overlap coupons in both catalogs. So this morning I meet several friends at the 24 hour Walgreens. I bought 6 bags of diapers for about $8. Plus got back $10 in Register Rewards that I used to buy some other things that the coupons overlaped on. Then I went to the other Walgreens that opens at 8:00 am. There has been an elusive pharmacy coupon that I have not been able to find. Well they had it. With all three coupons I had an overage. I added some thing for free!! In my first transaction I bought 3 packages of diapers and two boxes of sidewalk chalk. I spent .26. In my second transaction I bought 3 packages of diapers 2 boxes of crayons and 2 candy bars. I spent $1.19!! Plus with each transaction I got $5.oo in RR. Yay!! My husband was so amazed. Now not only do I have plenty of diapers for awhile. I also have some to donate to the Pregnancy Crisis Center!!
