Love the post!!

We got hardly any snow, just ICE! ICE! Baby. The roads were clear and dry by 11 with ice melting off the trees in the sunshine. By 2 it was all gone except for patches in deep shade on the north sides of things.

Man, give the guy credit, he did grill, despite all you and Ma nature tried to dump on him...I am glad the kabobs were worth all the work you both went through...you knitting and calling up the storm and Blaine trying to find ways around it...

Thanks you guys! I'll try my best to tell you the recipe here (it's one of those recipes that I've always just tossed together without a written-down formula):

I put the chicken meat in the pot--- I use boneless/skinless meat. (If I have a whole chicken, or quarters, I boil it all and then take all the meat off---then put the meat into the pot.)

Cover the chicken meat in water in the pot, and then start simmering it. I add about 4 cubes of chicken boullion, 1/2 cup of diced carrots and about a handful of frozen peas. I add about 2 T of onion powder (lots), about 1 tsp of garlic powder, salt and pepper, (a little heavy on the black pepper), and 1 tsp sage. I also throw in one can of cream of mushroom soup.

Later on, when I'm ready to put the dumplings in, I take out about a half cup of the juice and thicken it with some flour---then put it back in to the pot in order to thicken the whole pot a little bit. It has to be thick, not watery.

I make the dumplings like the recipe on the side of the box of Bisquik---but before mixing in the milk, I add to the Bisquik powder a few generous "shakes" of sage, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper---and another tsp of sage. I also throw in one T of dried parsley. (Then toss it around with a fork.) Then I mix in the milk to make the dough, and it's "right" when its a somewhat thick/sticky dough that can be dropped by big spoonfuls into the simmering chicken stew.

While the stew simmers, I drop in the big spoonfuls of dough. Then it has to cook with the top off for 30 min. Then put the top ON and simmer another 30 min.

When you're finished eating and you want to put the leftovers in the refrigerator, take out the leftover dumplings and put them in a separate plastic container. When you reheat everything the next day, you can put the dumplings in again. (You just can't store them together because the dumplings will soak up too much more liquid.)

I hope I explained this halfway decently---and all the powdered spices are "adjustable" in their amounts. I tend to be really generous with the sage---for some reason that spice just makes it taste better. It's how my family has made this recipe for umpteen generations!

I know it's no fun for you, but why does all that snow have to look so incredibly beautiful?!

I loved your blog on the snowstorm! I hadn't really paid any attention to the weather in Kansas. What's funny is I have an uncle (by marriage to my now deceased aunt) who lives in Overland Park. If you get a chance, I'd love to have a more definitive recipe for your chicken n dumplings, i.e. what kind of chicken, etc. Sure sounded good.

Hope by today, your snow is all gone.

ah-ha ha ha haa! This post is great Bo!

I wouldn't think that Kansas would get bad winter storms, but the weather probably hovers just around the freezing/melting temperature, perfect for loads of ice! Yuck!
