Easy 5-Minute Pecan Monkey Bread

We had this for breakfast and might make it for dinner too. Grands Biscuits are on sale for a dollar this week, meaning I should be able to grab half a dozen for free (with coupons).

1 pie pan
1 roll of Grands biscuits
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
cinnamon (whatever looks right)
Pecans (I have no idea how many)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Put butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a bowl and nuke for 20 seconds. Mix.
3. Crush/dice pecans into bottom of ungreased pie pan. I didn't really measure, I just kept adding until the pan had a thin layer across the bottom. Pour in the butter/sugar concoction.
4. Open biscuits. Using kitchen shears, cut each biscuit into quarters and add to the pie pan. 1 container of biscuits should fill pie pan almost perfectly.
5. Bake at 400 for 11-13 minutes. Let cool slightly, then invert into a cookie sheet.

Regret Minimization

Insert witty and/or sappy introduction here.

This is the dude who started Amazon... he's kind of a big deal.

My blog, now with 80% less content!

Hey, at least I'm actually updating. So what if I'm shamelessly stealing the most amazing stuff on the internet.

The Church is On The Move

Somehow that statement will never quite have the same meaning ever again for me.

This is a great little piece of moviemaking... the well-set-up shots, the heavy use of tilt-shift, the awesome choral number, the fact that the church actually drives in front of the lyrics, etc.

The theological issues are more troubling, if you care to think that way: moving the "Church" (I'm ignoring the building/body issue because it's too obvious) over a hundred miles just to "keep it safe for eternity." Nothing about mission, nothing about engaging the culture, nothing about anything except "keeping it safe." Yowza.

But if I'm really being honest, I have to admit I don't care about the theological issues. It's just a good excuse to show a great video.
