After finishing off the Cowboy Pot roast, Senior Management and I decided that I must make another Dutch Oven dish. This time I made “Chicken Dumpling Stew” (A few Pics Below). It turned out really well. I used a recipe found in the cookbook “Texas Treasury of Dutch Oven Cooking“. The corn was processed & preserved by my mom. The dumplings, however, were my own creation.
Since I am allergic to wheat (not just intolerant), I have to come up with creative solutions for breads. My wife has developed a pretty good biscuit mix that worked really well in the recipe. Here is the Biscuit recipe
Gluten Free Biscuits
Basic Flour Mix
2 1/2 c. Rice Flour
2/3 c. Potato Starch
1 1/4 c. of the Basic Flour Mix
1/4 c. buttermilk
1 Tbs Shortening
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 min.
For the dumplings, I didn’t bake the dough. I simply put them in the DO like any other dumpling dough.
This is good stuff. I think I am addicted now. I plan to make another tonight and perhaps one more this weekend. I’d like to make a cake or brownie. It is a bit frighting though because I think it would require a bit more discipline. We’ll see. There are some tasty pics at the end of this post.
As far as the jPod is concerned, I have done some work on the cabin & galley cabinets. Plus, a bit more work on the cabin doors. Senior Management started the doors and then they sat for a while because I have been researching and thinking about a design change. We also rearranged our plan for the galley. I have added a new drawing of the configuration (see: Galley).
Until Next time.
