Too hot for a big dinner tonight. Plus my 8 year old is on vacation at Grandma's house this week, so dinner will probably be an iced coffee and tomato sandwiches.

Split peas will have to wait. I forgot I had thawed a chicken thigh, only to find out there were two of them stuck together, so I'm making chicken and dumplings, which is almost done.

I've stripped the meat and refrigerated it while I reduce the broth. I'll cool and refrigerate that for a couple of hours then reheat, add the chicken, and make the dumplings (Bisquick type).

This ain't gonna happen. SO and I went out for lunch at a Japanese restaurant and now we aren't in the mood.

Not sure what's going to take its place.

I started my Spring cleaning & found a bundt pan I haven't used in eons. Couldn't decide to keep it or let it go. Before (or if) it bites the dust, I'm trying:

Crispy Chinese Roast Chicken in a Bundt Pan

Crispy Chinese Roast Chicken In A Bundt Pan! Recipe - Food.com - 125396

Will grill some bok choy (if available), and/or serve with stir-fry veggies.
