Oh, I almost forgot... I made Chicken and Dumplings saturday. Oh my god, it was sooooo good. I think of all the things I've ever cooked, this was the best. Most satisfying comfort food ever. But I did probably make a bit much (as I tend to do). Hopefully my enthusiasm won't dwindle too badly as I eat it for five days in a row.
