After a night of stormy weather, our temperature is expected to drop throughout the day, today. To me, that means dumplings. My daddy found a good sale on chicken last Saturday and he bought enough to split with us. Mama is also making her dumpling recipe today. Which is a less lazy recipe than mine. I use Bisquick and mama uses flour mixed with one egg and instead of milk, she uses some of the chicken broth. This makes a very interesting flavor that you don't find in most dumplings. But, one day as I was feeling too lazy to make her recipe (and mine is never as good as her's anyway), I reached for the box of bisquick. Since that day, I've used their recipe for biscuits, only I use a little less milk so it's easier to roll out. And sometimes, I use buttermilk instead of regular milk. You could probably even do like mom and use some of the hot broth in place of the milk. She says using hot broth prevents the dough from rising too much. But, that's just a matter of taste. I like dumplings both ways.
