Both those recipes sound good! It is a good thing it isn't Christmas Eve, Tomte would not have liked that you didn't leave a bowl of pudding for him.

We had beerbrats with cole slaw. My favourite nosy neighbour saw Stirling grilling the brats and started a conversation. She's German and had never heard of beer brats. We asked her to join us for supper, but she had something she had to do. She asked us to save her a half a sausage. She showed up as we were finishing supper and we gave her a sausage and some beer. She thought it was wonderful. I also had to tell her about the sausages (all natural) and where I got them. She had just been trying to get some German sausage and the store that she has been going to for 50 years is now closed. Yes, next time I'm at Costco, I will pick up some brats for Betty.

There's plenty left. Tomte will just have to sneak in while we're asleep and snitch a little.

Thought we would have reconstituted chili or soup the first night camping until we caught fish and found wild berries to sustain us. Guess again. Frís GF had packed 2 of the Worldís Thickest Hugest porterhouse steaks in the bottom of a cooler for us. Best steaks we ever ate, cooked over an open campfire. No, I could not eat it all. Wth a little effort, I managed somehow. Itís amazing what you can do once you tuck into it.

I say go for it, and make leftover sammies or a steak salad maŮana.

As an aside, Guess again. Wild berries are not found on the edge of a well
marked trail; deer paths cross and criss-cross leading to complete confusion. The sun doesnít shine through the trees and berries are not readily found along deer paths either. Berries are not ďin seasonĒ just because you are there. Euell Gibbons Lied. Next time pack more dried berries. And M&Mís>> if you plan on leaving a trail for the ground sqwerrels who follow you.

As for me, still having a bit of a teeth issue. Not so much, emphasis on a Little. Soft foods are better. I found a swell looking on top of the stove Chix and dumplings recipe. Too hot for the oven. Havenít tried this recipe before. DxW sent over a quart of her homemade chix stock and I bought a rotisserie chicken yesterday. Ate the legs, wings and one thigh and shared some with the little girls for supper last night and lunch. I donít usually hold too well with rotiss chix, except for Costco or a local Mideast market, otherwise the local grocer has one flavor in their base I donít abide as well, Whatever, and whatever they inject it with, the breasts are pretty moist, and thereís one thigh too. Will over cook some veggies, esp carrots, onion, brock and green beans. Add some frozen peas. Thyme, parsley and rosemary and tarragon. Then make this dumpling recipe to dollop on top towards the end.
When the kids were small, if I had noodles or potatoes in the chix soup, no dumplings, but I would make biscuits. After a few yelling sessions, I gave in. Dumplings with noodles along with the biscuits. Carb heaven for them. More work for me. But the pot was always empty at the end of the meal.

Illegitimi non carborundum!
