Winter Came Early !

Woke up this morning to a gentle surprise ! Did I say gentle? It is more of a shocking one! Snow coming down , wet and heavy , covering everything ! I am so not ready for winter yet ( I never am ) . Snow, cold ,just plain don't like it ! But I still live here, so I need to adjust! Below is a photo I took on my deck of a little wood bench I have a string of lights on and a bird cage.....they are covered! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !

I made a big pot of chicken and dumplings ! What could be better to have on a cold day? My most favorite chicken broth to use is Watkins Poultry Broth ! Pictured here ! I love using this brand , not so salty as some others , yet so easy to keep on hand!

The finished product !

Have a warm and creative day !!

I was surprised to see the snow too, we thought it'd go south of us...burrr!! We had to go to get the kids some snow boots too, since we had not gotten them any yet!!
Your chicken and dumplings sounds good! I made cheese soup today!!
Soup is good for this kinda weather!

Oh My! That looks so yummy. My husband would love it if I knew how to make chicken and dumplings. He used to have it as a child. I have never had it or made it but it does look tasty! hugs, Ellen
