A Love Affair with BBQ Biscuit Cups: A Culinary Adventure

So, election week came and went! Ugh was it a stressful week. Thankfully I am no longer the Lead Election Official but I did get to the polling place at 5:30 am to help set up. Winthrop had a super turnout! When your an election official it’s more about the voter and making sure they get through the process efficiently, than the candidates on the ballot. Not to mention two evening council meetings and an early morning committee meeting and 6:45 am Chamber meeting. Needless to say it was a busy week so I made BBQ and potato salad Sunday to get everyone through the week. I also made these with some of the leftover BBQ. Not gonna lie, my potato salad is pretty legit too, more on that later…
