Buffalo Chicken Soup & Blue Cheese Biscuits

Before Dustin left for one of his trips back to San Antonio, he specifically told me not to eat all of his Frank's. He literally eats Frank's hot sauce all of the time now.


Last week at the grocery store, he bought tortilla chips with no salsa, but instead said he would eat them with Frank's. Now I enjoy the flavors of hot wings (as evidenced by this soup), but I have no desire to eat it all of the time. I guess this is als0 why Dustin now loves the Bloody Mary. I silently giggled to myself when Dustin joked about me not using his Frank's because I already knew I was planning on making this soup while he was gone. Well not while he was gone technically, but I planned to make it on the day he got back as a special treat for him when he got off the plane.


That day his plane landed early, a meeting at school went long for me, and then I sat in traffic, so my window for making D dinner was pretty tiny. I was worried I wouldn't be able to have a warm meal ready for him on the table when he arrived from the airport. Luckily I had cooked and shredded the chicken the night before which saved me quite a bit of time. I got the blue cheese biscuits I was making to dunk in the soup into the oven quite quickly, and the soup came together in a snap. I think Dustin was pretty pleased with the meal (even if it meant me using his Frank's)!
