Um… hi. Remember me? Yeah, I’m still here. I know I disappeared for a while. It was unplanned but absolutely necessary as we’ve been crazy busy being alive. My baby was here and we ate and played and watched a lot of Parks and Recreation. It was awesome. I missed you, but not enough to look away.
We also spent a weekend in England catching up with an old friend to a fantastic Beatles soundtrack. Then we had different friends stay at our house for the weekend. In your reader’s world, this has already happened. In my writer’s world, I’m still anticipating. I predict it will be full of good food and tons of laughter. Life is good.
I’m sharing a recipe that I never dreamed I’d love as much as I do. This Weeknight Chicken & Dumplings is seriously awesome. Due to my vegetable aversion, I’d actually never eaten chicken and dumplings before, but now that I’ve tried this recipe, I want to eat it once a month. It’s the sage in the dumplings that really make this addictive.
I’ve called this Weeknight Chicken & Dumplings because I took some shortcuts that made this simple enough to make any day of the week. I used store bought chicken stock and pre-cooked chicken, so all you really have to do is chop some vegetables and mix up a batter. Everything else happens in the pot while you check Instagram or something probably better. I hope you have leftovers because you’ll be sad if you only get to eat this for one day.
Life moves fast, but you still have to eat. You might as well make it awesome. Weeknight Chicken & Dumplings is a great place to start.
