My soul food, my heart food, is CHICKEN AND DUMPLINS'. My mom used to fix the world's very best and they were, by far, my favorite thing to eat and still are.
My brother and I always got to pull the "pulley bone" of the chicken...actually, everyone calls it the WISHBONE now. It was and still is the "pulley bone" to us.
He would pull one side and I would pull the other and the bone would break. Whoever got the longest part, would absolutely get married first....NO QUESTION....Never mind that I was 9 years older than he was....heh heh heh
After a long day out of the house today, I made a big pot of my mama's CHICKEN AND DUMPLINS'. Lots of black pepper, only the white, lean of the chicken...NO dark meat allowed! I saved that for hubby since he likes it. It has NEVER touched these lips of mine, tho....No, Sir!
Now I have my mom's fabulous recipe for homemade dumplins' and I use it when I have plenty of time. HOWEVER, canned biscuits (bless their little hearts) are delicious in that chicken broth, too. The secret is to pull and stretch until you can pull off thin little pieces. Oh, yummy! (Remember, lots of black pepper)
I was so tired, I didn't fix a salad, a veggie, nothing else to go with this little, flavorful, bowl of wonderfulness. BUT, HOWEVER....I DID manage to find a couple of pieces of that pecan fudge I made the first of the week...one for me and one for hubby!
I plan on a more restful day today....hope you do, too!
