Chix and Dumplings Redux
Dooley and Doolia tried the chicken and dumplings recipe again from The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook. Besides the fact that we burned the first attempt, Dooley just doesn't like leg meat. So this time we bought some plump Amish boneless skinless chix breasts (2.5 lbs) and made the recipe again, with that minor substitution. It turned out SO good! We think we want to dilute the soup a little more next time too--it cooks so long that it reduces to a thick gravy texture. We'd prefer a thinner gravy.
Our strategy, of using cooking to help Dooley recover, is working. We spend hours together cooking, talking, laughing, hugging, and then eating. We are both seeing huge improvements in his mood, and for me, it actually feels like I'm married again. Feels good.

This makes me very happy. I'm thrilled for you both.
