This was taken yesterday afternoon, after we'd had about two inches of snow fall the night before. It was 29 degrees outside with a windchill of 19 degrees. Yes, those are sailboats in the water. BRRRRRR. Those are some die hard sailors.
Progress made so far on the project. Yes, it's painful. No, it's not finished.
Tonight's meal was The Farmgirl's Chicken and Dumplings from the Gooseberry Patch's Slow Cookers, Casseroles and Skillets.
You take 1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cube them.
Mix in one 16 oz bag of frozen mixed vegtables.
Dice an onion and throw them all in a crockpot.
Add 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth.
You're supposed to cook this on high for two hours then mix your dumplings and add them to cook another 30 minutes. However, at the end of two hours, it just didn't look right to me. It didn't look cooked enough, if that makes sense. The broth was thin, the onions weren't cooked well and it just didn't taste done. So, I transferred it to a pot on my stove. I guess those old southern chicken and dumplings were haunting me and I had to bend to the pressure. I cooked it a while on the stove and finished it there.
