Thursday Night :) 11/18/2010

Hello darling! :)

Lots to catch up on, yes?

A few nights ago I made those chips I posted about before.  Remember them?  Well this time I used my two cookie cutters and instead of salt, I put sugar and cinnamon on them!!!! :D  It was my mom's request :)

Making :) :

And the outcome of these cuties :) :

Yeah, the cocoa doesn't look too good because of the melted whipped cream.  I guess that's why they use shaving cream in food photography instead of actual whipped cream.  :P

OH MY GOSH the hot cocoa was sooooo delicious.  I actually didn't finish mine, it was SO good.  It was super rich and chocolatey :)  Like it should be! :D  The chips were pretty tasty too :)  And cute!

My parents seemed to enjoy this treat! :D

And thennnnnn I also made chili and corn bread (I think I made that last night.)  Not from scratch, but still :)

Yeah, yeah, I used a whisk to stir the chili while it heated up X) It was the only stirring thingy we had clean and I'm WAY to lazy to wash dishes. :P

It was reaalllllllyyyyyy good.  The chili was 'roasted tomato' flavored :)  I liked it!

Recipe :) from Kevin and Amanda

Creamy Chicken & Dumplings

1 lb chicken breasts
10 bouillon cubes
2 quarts water
2 cups bisquick
2/3 cups milk
2 tbsp butter
4 eggs
2 stalks celery
Place chicken breasts & bouillon cubes in a large pot & cover with 2 quarts of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20-25 mins until chicken is done.
Meanwhile, boil the eggs. Then mix together the bisquick and milk until soft dough forms. When chicken is done, remove from pot and set aside. Drop spoonfuls of dough into the chicken stock. Simmer over low heat, covered, for 10 mins, then uncovered for 10 mins.
Meanwhile, dice 2-4 stalks of celery until you have approximately 1/2 – 1 cup of diced celery. Cut or shred chicken into bit sized pieces. Saute celery in 2 tbsp of butter for a couple of mins. Add in chicken & season well with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Add the chicken and celery to the soup. Remove yolk from boiled eggs and chop whites and add to soup. Stir all to combine. Serves 4.
