      Kitten, this was absolutely fab-u-lous! My family just "Mmmm'd" through the whole meal. I've made dumplings many times before and this is the first using canned biscuits. What a surprise! They were incredible! This was such a soul-warming meal....perfect for these cold days that are upon us. I didn't have canned broth, but I did have a container of "soup base". This stuff in great. I just put 5 cups of water into a big bowl, nuked it, then added as much soup base as I wanted. I did add extra and the taste was just wonderful. Also, since I only had 2 cups of left-over chicken, I used extra vegetables. I had a large bag of broccoli, cauliflour (sp?), and carrots. The veges were large, so I thawed them a bit and then chopped them into tiny pieces. We had enough left for two meals. The second night, I didn't have quite as much left so I used Grand Biscuits, cooked them, and when they were almost done, I split them and put ham and cheese between. I cooked for a few minutes until the cheese was melted and Oh, boy, did these sammys tasted good dunked into your Chicken and Dumplings. Also, Kitten, I'm sorry I haven't emailed you in a while. I don't have the Premium Membership anymore. This gives me a good chance to say "HI" and I hope and pray that you're feeling well. Terry
