Buffalo Cups and SSS

Around here buffalo chicken is a favorite, be it in the form of wings, dip or any shape, fashion or form really. I am always brain storming on new ways to eat it.
How about in a cup? An edible cup as it were, a biscuit filled with buffalo chicken. Now that's the ticket, a little drizzle of Cucumber Ranch and I was in love!
Super easy and a great idea for quick meals, snacks, football parties, whatever.
Buffalo Cups
1 lb ground chicken
1/3 cup buffalo sauce
minced carrot and celery (you decide how much you like)
Grands Biscuits
mozzerella shredded cheese
Cucumber Ranch dressing
Take your biscuits, I used the flaky ones and pulled them in half. Spray a muffin pan and place the biscuit halves in. Smush the half around to form a cup. Preheat your oven to the temperature for the biscuits.
Cook the ground chicken with salt, pepper, paprika and a dash of chili powder along with the carrots and celery, until done, stir in the buffalo sauce. Spoon the mixture into the biscuits.
Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake.
When you plate them drizzle on the dressing. OH SO GOOD!

When I Grow Up 
I was given:Is eye for an eye a form of justice? If so, how does it accomplish the end goal of serving justice and how do we make sure it is applied fairly? If not, what is the better alternative?
It was submitted by:       

This is a tricky subject and I am really not one for making waves. 
I believe what the Bible says "an eye for an eye" is taken out of context, a lot. People love to use this verse for their own evil will.
God says "vengeance is mine says the Lord" that's it. Not mine, not yours, but His.
Now, also we are to follow the law given my those in authority and if the death penalty is legal, then some could say, he killed a man, so he will be killed. An eye for an eye.
Is it fair? I struggle with that because if you kill my child I will want to kill you but that is not my place. Now if the court deems it so, then so it is. However, the killer has a family and they will suffer. I'm sure they suffer enough knowing what their family member has done, so is it fair? Is justice served? What does that mean?
    According to Merriam Webster dictionary: Justice is served means: proper punishment or fair treatment given by the legal system.
But who decides what's fair? If it is fair to me and not you, is it fair? If the law says it's fair, then it's fair, but I may not agree.
I could go on and on but I don't feel I would be getting anywhere, maybe beating a dead horse so to speak.


  1. I agree with you, what is just is difficult to determine. I don't believe in the death penalty, yet if someone hurt one of my boys, I'd start believing.
    Your recipe sounds like a perfect addition to my Super Bowl appetizer table.

  2. Recipe sounds perfect for football time!
    Hard to figure that one out. I'd be back and forth, even after losing Caylee, not sure if I believe in the death penalty!

  3. My children learned at camp that "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." It's a Gandhi quote and I remind them of it whenever they get into the "he started it" mode of arguing.

  4. That recipe looks delicious! I love buffalo chicken. I do believe in the death penalty for certain things. Things so bad that I wouldn't want my taxes for keeping him alive. Those that torture and kill people. Really bad things.

  5. I had a really close friend murdered when he and I were both really young. He was 20, and I was 21, barely. And for a long time emotion got the better of me, and I believed his killers should have gotten the death penalty. It took a long time to see that belief for what it was, and that an eye for an eye really wouldn't change anything for me or for his family. I don't think an eye for an eye is the way a country should run itself especially when it's not cost effective to do so or effective in controlling crime. And if we are in a place where we literally don't trust the government to govern in any capacity as most people have expressed according to every poll I've read in recent times, how do we accept that governmental bodies can apply justice fairly when lives are on the line?
