Spring Ahead ~ Mailboxes ~ Crock Pot Easy Chicken & Dumplings ~ Bizarre Vegetables & Fruit ~ Tooth Cleaning 

Good 41ยบ cloudy morning.

Tonight's the night.... set your clocks ahead 1 hour before you get in bed!!!
Some interesting facts:
I had a call at 5:20 this morning from a Deputy. He said he was down by my mailbox that had been hit by a drunk and smashed. The drunk, a female, had been arrested. He gave me his name, phone number, and the case number. He told me to give the information to the other neighbors I share the mailbox holder with.  More on that later after I go check out the damage. Here is the Google street view of our mailboxes..... 

Crock Pot Easy Chicken and Dumplings
3 cans of cream of chicken soup (10.5 oz each)
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 tubes of refrigerated biscuits (12 oz each)
  1. Put your soup in your crock pot.
  2. Add in your chicken, followed by enough water to just cover your chicken.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours.
  4. About 45 minutes to an hour before serving, turn your crock pot on high.
  5. Use two forks to shred your chicken into bite size pieces.
  6. Cut your biscuits into quarters, add to your crock pot and mix well.
  7. Cover again and cook until your dumplings are done (approximately 35 minutes).
  8. Stir and serve.
Bizarre Vegetables and fruit.... evil onion, terrified green and red peppers, and a strawberry butterfly.....

What better way to start March 10th then with National Blueberry Popover Day? Popovers are airy rolls that puff up when baked, popping over the edge of the tin.  They are light and crispy on the outside while the insides are warm and often hollow.  They can be filled with custards, creams and fruits for a sweet treat, especially blueberries.   
Popovers are similar to Yorkshire pudding and can also be served with savory combinations.
Most popover recipes are made using mostly eggs, milk, flour and salt.  When making popovers, using eggs and milk that are at room temperature produces the best result. The resulting batter is thin but has enough air it that when it bakes the steam expands the batter, causing it to puff up and pop over the tin.  The egg proteins help the pastry hold its shape and eventually the crust turns flaky and golden.
** 1850 – The oldest known reference to popovers in a letter of E.E. Stuart.
** 1876 – The first cookbook with a popover recipe was Practical Cooking by M.N. Henderson.
