Some recent pictures

To the rescue! Luken has two toy fire trucks that make noise and he LOVES them!

Playing with his new tunnel (thank you Grandma)!

I cooked again today! I made the yummy chick pea dumpling recipe that Larkin gave me.

chic peas cooked in veggie chix seasoning and herbed dumpling. serve with broc on side. yummy yummy and has all the components a meal needs as long as you broc portion is not too small. i like mine with chix but you can leave that out.

open as many cans of chic peas as you want. rinse and dump into pot. add H2O to cover garbanzos. season to taste with chix seasoning and pepper. i like msg free mckays or beter than broth. both are good. bring to simmer. drop in dumpling and cook covered for 15 min.

dumpling recipe
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup milk

In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, thyme, parsley, and oregano. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add milk, using just enough to form a thick batter.
Drop by rounded tablespoons into your simmering soup or stew, cover, and allow to cook 15 minutes.

careful to not over mix dumplings. also good with cheddar or other melting cheese added. i bet you can get pretty good biscuit dough at the good food store and just drop it in if you don't want to bother with making them yourself.

this is comfort food. soooooo yummy

It was really good. Thanks, Larkin.

I enjoy the comments that you all leave. Since I'm not a very good detective, please tell me who you are (if you're someone that I know). Thank you.

Have a great weekend!
