    Every single thing I've posted in this thread was prepared by me. My wife, who is a great cook BTW, cook's only on occasion these days. She did way more than her fair share of planning and preparing meals when the kids were younger and deserves a break. She's not complaining one bit either!

    I don't think I have ever posted a plate of chicken and dumplings in here, mainly because they are one of the meals my wife prepares.

    Ask her to watch this and what she may possibly do differently, please.



    I think that I particularly enjoyed that video, simply because I have been up here too long and am in dire need of a respite trip to Jamaica. I did learn how to prepare many unique dishes while living there, but one of my favorite things was homemade sorrel tea for Christmas. Regardless, I think that I would like to finally whip up some chicken and dumplings fairly soon and am open to suggestions. I make a mean homemade chicken noodle soup and actually think it might be fun to mix it up a bit with dumplings, instead, but I like my chicken and dumplings on the creamy side.

    By the way, being that Christmas is just around the corner, and I mentioned one of my favorite Christmas drinks, included within this post is the necessary plant. Many wrongly confuse it with ornamental hibiscus. You would have to order from a farmers market, dried, as opposed to fresh, unfortunately, in order to try and make that delicious tea. If you order the tea premade, it will likely taste horrible. I have even done so while in Jamaica, simply to get it across customs and it tasted wretched. I tossed it! :eek:

    I ground fresh sausage for breakfast this morning from some really fatty pork roasts I found at the Savealot store.

    Then fried some up and made some biscuits, country hash browns and some cream gravy from the sausage drippings. The gravy was made with some leftover heavy cream from Thanksgiving. Talk about smooth, rich and decadent gravy! It's been a long time since we've had cream gravy.
    [​IMG]
    We finished up the Thanksgiving leftovers for lunch with turkey, cornbread dressing and gravy sandwiches on Woohoo buttermilk wide pan bread, tater salad, and cranberry sauce.

    Desert was the last of the cushaw pies topped with some stiff whipped cream.
