Something simple, but a favorite of the wife and I. Chicken and dumplings on Saturday.

And no shortcuts with canned biscuit dough. My dumplings are made the old fashioned way. I'll cook down the chicken today and pick the meat off the bones, save the stock and refrigerate it and tomorrow I'll remove the congealed chicken fat off the top and use some of that in the flour as my lard to make the dumplings----instant flavor. Roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thick and cut it in small squares then put it in the gravy to cook.


Tonight will be fried catfish po-boys and potato salad on the side. I've got about 8 quart bags of catfish filets I caught on the Mississippi River since the new year.

Dumplings:

3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
6 tbsp. chicken fat from top of stock
1 cup chicken stock

Mix all ingredients and roll dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Just make sure to have enough flour on the rolling surface so they don't stick to your table or countertop.

Cut in strips 1" x 2" making sure to have enough fresh flour on them so they don't stick if planning to make them ahead of time. I generally make them ahead of time and lightly dust them with fresh flour and store them in the fridge until needed.

This is enough dumpling dough to go into a pot with about 2 gallons of gravy and chicken in it.

Boiling a sack of crawfish again. I'll prolly do it every weekend as long as the prices are this low. I set up washer toss and cornhole and we have a little family party.

Smoking 3 yardbirds. Probably use it in jambalaya, sandwiches with bacon, sun dried tomatoes, etc, maybe enchiladas.

Also found some Rabideaux's Smoked Andouille (GOAT) in my freezer (life is good) so shrimp-n-grits are approaching.
