Oh, I’m just sitting here listening to music and thinking about food.
What else is new?
I’m thinking about how much I enjoyed this chicken and vegetable slant on pot pie.
Parmesan topped biscuits sitting atop creamy chicken and mixed vegetable. So easy and so homey.
Parmesan Chicken and Biscuit Pie
2 cups shredded (or cubed) cooked chicken
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 can (10.75oz) cream of chicken soup
1/2 soup can of heavy cream or half and half
1/4 tsp black pepper
6 unbaked frozen biscuits (or the refrigerated kind)
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 425℉.
2. Combine chicken, frozen vegetables, chicken soup, and cream in a large mixing bowl. Season with pepper. Transfer filling to an 11 x 7 inch (2 quart) glass or ceramic baking dish and smooth the top with a spatula.
3. Arrange biscuits on top of the filling in 2 rows of 3. Sprinkle tops of biscuits with Parmesan.
4. Bake until the biscuits are golden brown and filling is bubbling, 20-25 minutes. Serve immediately.

I’ll admit it. I love epic songs.
You know when I talked about Awesome the other day? Well Epic is another one of those getting to be over-used words.
But, there are some songs that can only be described as Epic. That can be very good or very bad, but in my case it is usually something that is so over the top that I can’t help but love it.
This song is Epic, in my sense of the word.
Dramatic vocals, background people singing to the singer, pounding piano.
Then there is that “Swim Swim” part giving way to the lyrics:
“Stone on the bottom of the ocean
says I know this is not a cul-de-sac”
Who cares? I love it.
Plus, look, Frida eats cake.
Somehow, and this is very irreverent, I always think of this Bonnie Tyler video when I am listening to The Enemy Within. No connection at all, apart from the Epic nature of the literal video.
And now this is REALLY epic, since when I went to search for the video to share it turns out that Sony banned it….worldwide.
Now all that is available is this literal version of Total Eclipse Of The Heart with a cat sitting next to the telly.
Check out Frida Hyvönen on her Website, where you can buy the music and learn about some upcoming gigs in Sweden and Paris.
Note: Post edited on 12/13/12 to include that the mixed vegetables should be thawed.
