I made the biscuits again because they're just so dang quick and easy! Redheaded Snippet mixed them up this time! I'm finding the recipe I'm using actually needs more cream and I still need to tweak with the flavor a bit (still a bit bland) but we are definitely going to be making these on a regular basis.
For the soup, I had found two recipes I really liked. They were very similar with only a few differences so I combined what I liked about each and left out what I didn't (ground beef, for instance: I think that would have made it a little too Chef-Boyardee).
Basically saute' onions and garlic in a heap o' butter, add spices (oregano, basil, thyme, and pepper or whatever you want) to toast and some tomato paste then dump in a couple of cans of low-sodium chicken broth and two hearty-sized cans of crushed tomatoes.

The final consensus was that it was very tasty but too chunky. The children do not like chunks. Especially where tomatoes are concerned. I should have remembered that from my experience with making pasta sauce. They asked me to run it through the blender next time. And I think I probably will. Once I get my immersion blender for my birthday (ANVIL-SIZED HINT).
So, next on the menu: Chicken Noodle! Until next time...
