Busy Hands

Rearranged and cut flowers for dinning table.

Glued and puttied leg of charity shop find!
This chair was only $5!

Baked lemon cake and sliced it up for easy
grab and go snack!

Baked some beer bread.

Crocheted a piece of toast, although in this picture
it reminds me of an owl.
I have to make an additional 29 more of these toasts/owls...

Crocheted a dozen granny squares for a public yarn
bombing that will take place in California, in March 2013.
I plan to make a total of 120 granny squares, in 12 square increments.

Sawed out a dozen birds, plus a few extra for gifts for holiday.
Sanded a few too. I have about 100 more to complete.

Put the girls in their t-shirts, brrrrr it's a chilly day today
not to mention their stares at me after putting them in their
t-shirts. They hate sweaters equally as much.
'but it's cold girls...'
It's a good night for chicken and dumplings.
Oh with a slice of warm beer bread too...

This meal took only an hour to make from start to finish!
It's super easy too!
3 lbs boneless/skinless chicken (rinse & cut up)
Add 3 cups of water to large pot
add cut up chicken, salt, pepper, thyme, poultry seasoning.
Bring to boil over high heat.
 Reduce heat to simmer once boils and cover
and cook on simmer for 25 minutes.
Cut up 1 1/2 cups carrots and 1/1/2 cups celery.
Add carrots and celery after done simmering for 25 minutes,
cover and cook for 10 minutes.
While veg cook, make dumplings
you can most drop biscuit recipes
OR use boxed bisquick...
2 cups bisquick, 2/3 cup milk.
set dough aside.
Once veg is done cooking for 10 minutes, uncover
and add dumplings by rolling up small portions of dough
and dropping them on top of chicken/veg mixture.
This should yield approximately 12 dumplings.
More if you make small balls, or fewer if you roll larger dough balls.
Cook another 10 minutes UNCOVERED, over simmer.
Once done,
Cook an additional 10 minutes COVERED.
Once done, serve and enjoy!
Total cooking time: 55 minutes.
Prep time: 10 minutes

Shopping List
3 lbs skinless/boneless chicken
1 bag of small serving carrots
1 stalk of celery
1 box of Bisquick
