Last weekend we went to a neighbor’s yard sale, and I got my son his first reel and rod. He’s been so excited all week, playing with it by casting it in the pool, so yesterday we went down to the lake and we took him fishing for the first time.
Now I wish I could tell you he caught something, or any of us caught something, but we didn’t. I think it was just too hot and windy. Hopefully next weekend he’ll be able to catch his first fish.
Since we didn’t catch any fish, we had chicken. I made this batch of chicken and dumplings in the slow cooker. The slow cooker is a really easy way to fix it and forget it, and get the most tender chicken and flavorful stock.
Later that evening, instead of making the dumplings by hand, I used frozen dumplings. They’re really good, almost as good as homemade. I also used frozen biscuits, Pillsbury’s new Grands!® Honey Butter Frozen Biscuits. They were the perfect compliment to this meal. They’re buttery, and just slightly sweet.
