Chilly Pepper & Chicken and Dumplings

Poor Pepper!

She got a little chilly and practically buried herself in the blanket.  (I helped pull the over up over her back.)

The weather is getting cooler, and it is time for some great comfort food recipes!  I just happened to try a new recipe for Chicken & Dumplings the other day, and it was Yummy!!! I just have to share it with you!

Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumplings

This was a super duper easy recipe. You’ll have to follow the link for the recipe because it isn’t mine, but I will tell you how I plan to change it when I make it again.

McD loved the taste, but said it could use more of the soupiness.  He didn’t know it was just Cream of Chicken soup, so I plan on adding more of it and maybe chicken broth instead of water. We are also huge fans of all things spicy, so I plan on adding some jalapenos to the crock pot next time as well.

I am getting hungry just thinking about it. Try it, and let me know what you think. It was a winner winner, chicken dinner here at our house.

To Eat or Not to Eat (Recipes)


Can you believe people eat these things?

I love to look at them, take photos of them, and fish with them.  But eat them?  I think not.  Never say never, but I would like to pass on eating grasshoppers.

I hear they are a good source of protein.  EWWW! 

Some people boil these boogers and leave them in the sun to dry, then they eat them as a snack.  What do they do just throw them in a bowl and salt them like peanuts?  EWWWW!

Honestly, I cannot imagine eating one of these.  I read on wikipedia that you have to be careful when eating grasshoppers because they can carry tapeworms. 

Let's just stick to eating these kinds of grasshoppers.
