Cookin' with Matt: Chicken n' Dumplings

So, I decided to cook up some chicken n' dumplings tonight for my friend Casey.  She's suffering from some awful first trimester nausea.  When I asked her what even sounded remotely good, she said chicken n' dumplings.  A few years ago, I had the best recipe for CnD, but I lost it! I found this recipe online called "Big Thicket Chicken and Dumplings" --with a few modifications of course :)
 

Boiling about a 5 lb chicken with some seasonings
Dumplings...Mmmmmm
Celery, Onions, and Carrots...
Hey can I have some chicken with those dumplings? :)
 More dumplings, the better...

TaDaH!!! :) Yummmmm

The 15th of September

It's kind of crazy how one day out of the year can mean so much to so many people, but for completely different reasons.  For me, tomorrow marks  3 years since my brother passed away.  Around this time,  I think about him a little more and make sure I can still picture his face without trying. He would have been 27 years old...



The 15th of September is also my sister in laws wedding anniversary.  Katy and David will be celebrating 9 years! They have 2 boys and 1 on the way - Ash, Kavi, and soon to be Rigby.  The one thing I have noticed about David and Katy is that they love each other unconditionally.  She always builds David up and never tears him down...one thing I admire about Katy.   


September 15, 2010 will be the day Tamara gives birth to her baby girl Brynlee Janeil Johnson.  It will be the first day of her new life.  I'm so excited for her.  If I could go back and experience that moment again, I totally would.  You spend the whole time anticipating your baby's arrival, you almost forget to take in all the little things...all the things that lead up to the moment you held him/her for the first time. 


Tomorrow will be spent experiencing all three - see a friend become a mom, spend time with my parents, and babysit the boys so Katy and David can celebrate their anniversary :)
