Bubble bread, caterpillar mac and cheese

Bubble bread

2 cans of refrigerated biscuits (you can use more if you use a larger pan—for this size I used a 9 or 10″ glass pie plate)
1 C of sugar
3 to 4 of cinnamon, nutmeg, apple pie spice, etc.  You can use any combination you like or just use all cinnamon——your choice   I used cinnamon, apple pie spice and allspice
butter (about 4 TBSP)

Spray baking pan very well with Pam.  Mix sugar and spice together either in a bowl or in a ziploc. Open biscuits.  Tear biscuits in half and roll halves into balls.  Put a few balls of dough at a time in the sugar mixture and toss to coat.  Place coated dough into pan. (If you are using more biscuits you may need more sugar and cinnamon to coat all the dough)  Any leftover sugar mix can be sprinkled over the top of the biscuits.  Cut butter into cubes and “dot” around the top of the dough. Bake at 350 until brown and bubbly. Best served warm.

Caterpillar mac and cheese

OK, this is for all teacher friends.  When you are teaching the life cycle of the butterfly, get small shell noodles, large shell noodles, twist or fusilli noodles, and bowtie noodles. Kids can use them to sequence the life cycle:  sm shells are the egg, twist are the caterpillar, lg shell are the chyrsallis, and bowties are the butterfly.  Take all remaining noodles, combine and boil in salted water.  Drain.  Return to pan and add a cubed box of Velveeta, 1 C of milk and 1 C of shredded cheddar.  Mix well until cheese is melted.  If it is too stringy or sticky add more milk as needed.  When you serve to kids, you can look for “eggs, caterpillars, cocoons, and butterflies”
