Do I have to take this

On the way home today, I told my munchkins that we were having Chicken and Dumplings for dinner. They were both very excited because it is one of their favorite foods. Since they were forced to eat brussel sprouts this week, they should get something they like. Anyway, after the excitement faded, my sweet Jacob said, "Can you make the chicken a little softer this time? Do you know how to do that?" I told him I really didn't know if I was capable of such a feat, but I would do my best. He was content with that answer. I guess that means I should go and make sure I'm not over boiling the chicken. I would hate to disappoint.

I LOVE chicken and dumplings! one of my FAVORITE foods, EVER! Hope the chicken was to Jacob's liking. If not, feel free to send any leftovers my way! :)

I think the chicken was great. Jacob still complained, but conceded it was softer. He has never been much of a meat eater. The dumplings were a success. I like to make it because it is cheap, and the boys eat it well.
