The storm has been underway for a few hours now. Everything is white and blowing. Mother Nature has been a real bitch this winter!!
Although I hate the snow and all the crap that comes with it, I must say I do enjoy the prep for it. Getting hunkered down in the house with candles, blankets, junk food and comfort foods. Pre-storm cooking always makes the house smell like home.
As promised here is the link to the recipe for the chicken and dumplings
This recipe is a keeper. I followed the recipe but made some additions which I would recommend. I added 2-3 healthy tablespoons of Dijon mustard and I also added carrots and peas. It would have looked boring and bland without the extra color. Before I added the dumplings I took the chicken out and shredded with a fork and put it back in.
Also since it was my first try at dumplings, I added too many so after about 20 minutes I had to remove a few. Rookie mistake :)
