EEEEEEK!!! I am a lil bit late in posting this.........Shhhhhhhhhhh!! Don't tell!!! The punishment is a thousand lashes with a wet noodle and I just can't handle that today!!!!
It's a brand new week at Lasting Memories and of course that means a brand new challenge!!! (cue the applause!) You can check HERE to see the winner and top three from last weeks New year's Challenge.
This week we have a recipe challenge! And not your typical one of these, 3 of these, stand on your head and use a glue gun to adhere 50 of these kind of a challenge....altho that would be fun not that I think about it :):)
This week we want you to share something to eat with us........a treasured family recipe, something you are known for bringing to church potlucks......or maybe you slap together a mean PB&J sandwich!! We want you to scrap it this week!!
And this week there is another AWESOME RAK for the winner!! OMG I am drooling myself!!! My lovely DT sista Stacia (who by the way made it to round 2 at Practical Scrappers!!! WOOOOOT!!!! Go vote!!) is sponsoring this week. And look at whats for grabs!!!!
MME Lost and Found!!!!!! (Squeeaaaaaal!!!!!)
With being sick this one caught me a little unprepared. I love to cook and actually there are TONS of things I amke that everyone raves over......know the saying don't trust a skinny cook??? Well, I assure you I am a most trustworthy cook!!! LOL. I didn't have anything ready for this challenge so I dug thru some old photos and found these of Jesse being made to eat Chicken N Dumplins............I know, I am SUCH a mean mom!!! He is the pickiest eater ever and actually studies his food looking for mysterious ingredients. He refuses to eat red or green things.......lol. And LOVES Cornbread but hates hush puppies because he found an onion in one once.......sighhhhhh. So needless to say, he was NOT "feelin" the whole dumplin thing. And the scrapper in me had the good sense to whip out the camera......lol. My fave is the photo with him clutching his throat.......he said "I think I'm dying Mom!!"
The pics are a couple of years old.....and obviously he did survive it and lived to eat many more dishes he can't stand........lol
The recipe is so easy that I don't even use one.......
a couple of lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts
a couple of cans of chicken broth
depending on how many dumplins you want (I have to feed an army here) a few cans of CHEAP biscuts. (get the cheapest you can find for this)
Dice up the chicken and boil in the broth........when its done chop up the biscuts and add them, make sure things are boiling so they get cooked.......and put the lid on and in about 5 mins they are done......then add a can of cream of chicken soup and stir it in and warm it up and its pretty much ready.
I also do the super duper from scratch version where you rolls your own dumplins and cook all day long........but sometimes you don't have that kinda time....and if you work and have kids you can get this on the table within an hour. Even the hubby can do it........LOL. For a quick dinner that tastes home made....seriously, this rocks. And you can add some frozen veggies while you are cooking the chicken if you want....but my family hates veggies, cuz they are all weird.
So there ya have it...........cmon and play along this week and link it up so we can all leave you some bloggy love!!
Also a gentle reminder........the Saturday sketch is NOT part of the challenge!! You are not required to use it....but it's there if ya want to. To be eligible to be in our top 3 or to win the RAK you MUST follow the general challenge guide lines.
However if you do create an awesome page with the featured sketch of the week just leave a link to it in the comments section NOT Mr Linky and everyone can go see your amazing creation! I hate being the bad guy but we have had some confusion and I thought I'd attemtp to clear it up! You don't HAVE to use the sketch but if you do and use our challenge criteria go ahead and use Mr Linky.......if not just leave a link in our comments section :):) If I am confusing you further feel free to ask.......lol.
Thanks for visiting today!!!
