What's For Dinner??

Chicken and Dumplings! Yum!! I followed this recipe except I substituted turkey for chicken b/c that's what I had on hand. It looked sorta like this when it was done!

Here is where I got the recipe from!


1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup frozen green peas and carrots
1 cup cut-up cooked chicken
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed creamy chicken mushroom soup
1 cup Original Bisquick® mix
1/3 cup milk
Paprika, if desired

How to make Chicken and Dumplings

1. Heat 1 1/2 cups milk, the peas and carrots, chicken and soup to boiling in 3-quart saucepan, stirring frequently.
2. Stir Bisquick mix and 1/3 cup milk until soft dough forms. Drop dough by 8 spoonfuls onto chicken mixture (do not drop directly into liquid). Sprinkle with paprika.
3. Cook uncovered over low heat 10 minutes. Cover and cook 10 minutes longer.

Hmm... the last time I tried this, I disappeared for a year! lets see If I can give this another try!!

A few weeks ago, I finished my 2nd cardigan. I loooove it so much! It feels likes I'm wearing a hug, if that makes any sense!

Here's a view from the back. Here's a link to my Ravelry projects page with all of the details. All in all, it was a great knit and I'm already working on my next cardi! Woo hoo!!

Rhinbeck 09

I went to the NY State Sheep & Wool Festival over the weekend. The hubby and I had a blast!! I ended up scoring a few more skeins of yarn, lots of cheese, pasta sauce and a few other goodies!

The food at the fair was delish! Last year, I didn't get a chance to try the chicken pot pie. The line for it last year was 2 hours long!!! That is waaay too long to wait in line for food IMHO. On Sunday, I made bee line to the chicken pot pie booth and waited about 3 minutes in line for it!! The crust of the pie was soo flakey and buttery!! I'm glad i decided to have it for breakfast! LOL!

Ont the way out, we passed by the auctions where we saw the cutest cashmere goat! She was trying to eat the papers out of her handlers hands!!!

In the past year, I :
  • purchased my first home (and i even have a craft room!! yippee!!)
  • had my very first party
  • had a family reunion at my house
  • got a puppy
  • planted my first garden
  • and added a ton of yarn and other craft supplies to my craft room!!
  • and went to Rhinebeck!! (NY Sate Sheep & Wool Festival)
There's more too come!! I'm getting the next post of my Rhinebeck experience started now!!

Nothing new here. I still haven't knitted a stitch all week. It's been that tough. That is all.
