Tonight, I made Bob his favorite dinner, chicken, dumplings and green beans. The dumpling recipe is from the New Basics Cookbook and are they awesome. Here is the recipe: I usually double or triple it. Here it is:
1 c. flour
2 Tbsp shortening
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/3 c. milk
pepper to taste
I heat large can of Swanson Chicken broth, and about the same amount of water (or more) and some chicken soup base or bouillon and a chopped leek. Mix the flour, baking powder, pepper and shortening together well until is looks like crumbs. Add the milk and mix well. I drop the clumps of dough but kind of squeeze it to form it a little before I put it in the boiling broth. Cook for 13-15 minutes. I think these are the BEST dumplings with chicken gravy on it....OI!
I finished my last Halloween stitch from the JCS Halloween Ornament edition. I really love this one and had to do it. Wouldn't you know it was the only on in the magazine that they left out of the publishing. I really cut the fabric straight! LOL
They are a very quick stitch. I want to do the rest to put in a basket.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments. It really makes my day. It is so much fun to get them.
Hope you all have a great week! Thanks for stopping.
Keep on Stitching
