Cookin' Southern Stylee
Mrs. Phos has a to-do at School and the theme is Southern cooking. She turned down my offer to cook up some greens, which I love, but figured chicken and dumplings and biscuits and gravy are the way to go. I have made biscuits and gravy, but not the chicken and dumplings so this should be interesting. As far as biscuits, my track record with baking ranks right up there with the Great Pompeii Greek Fry-off of 79 A.D..
I'll try anything once though so biscuits it is. I usually cheat and use the glop that comes in a can. Ok, you caught me, I like the way the stuff explodes out of the tube when you smash it on the counter. Anything involving an explosion or ball of fire counts as fun in my book.
I am taking some liberties with the chicken, the recipe calls for it to be cooked in the pot, but I find this is unnecessary if I use stock, so I plan on grilling the chicken beforehand, then adding the meat later. The North won, South lost, so I do it my way.
