Rain, Rain, Go Away..
I'm one of those people who really enjoys a rainy day, especially if I'm able to stay home, cuddle up on the couch with a book or a good movie, and just listen to the sound of the rain hitting the roof. However, after a couple of days I'm over it! I know, after seeing what my friends up north are going through with snowstorms, I shouldn't complain, but still..this is the Sunshine State, after all! Loki and I have had to forgo our morning walks, and neither of us have been able to play outside, making for a slightly grumpy mama and doggy!
In my opinion, this weather calls for comfort food. Warm, rich & hearty stick-to-your ribs kinda stuff, the meals your mama would make. Nothing too fancy, though, because who wants to drive in a downpour to the grocery store in search of some fancy ingredient? Not me, that's for sure! So I searched my kitchen yesterday, gathered a little of this & a bit of that, put them all together and came up with the ultimate rainy day dinner: Chick'n and Dumplings. Mm...doesn't the thought of it just warm you right up?
I combined several different recipes to create this slow cooker version, so easy yet delicious, and much healthier than the traditional version. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
I think I see the sun trying to peek through the clouds, crossing fingers!
Have a Beauty-full day,
