This was made during a stretch of many successes. I had a feeling this soup would not be soup since pasta always tends to soak up all of the liquid. I realized later I misread and was supposed to add another 2 cups of broth but I really don’t know if that would have been enough. But it is fine since it still tasted really good. So, still a success since everyone loved it.
When reheating it I added extra water to help keep it from becoming dry.

After my dad and M visited, they had left me with some chicken thighs, clementines, carrots, and celery. I didn’t have any plans for them but decided to throw them together into something. Somehow they all worked together and made something delicious. I served it on top of rice to take advantage of the sauce.

When I was looking back through my pictures to figure out which recipes I wanted to share, I had the hardest time remembering where this one came from. Normally I would have dismissed it as not memorable, but actually it was. I remembered that we all really liked it, including the Chiplet in a pureed form. So, I definitely wanted to make it again. All I needed to do was think back to which cookbooks I had been looking at for ideas and finally I remembered this one. See? Even my tired brain works sometimes. I am very happy to be reminded of this because it was fairly simple. My biggest worry at the time was if it would turn out okay with my changes. But it did and we enjoyed it.

This recipe started off with every thought of me following it word for word. But we don’t like fish sauce, no matter how hard we try. So, I swapped it with some Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce. And then I was going to use skewers but chickened out (pun intended) at the last moment. That’s why my chicken is chopped when it didn’t need to be with the way I cooked the chicken. But, it still ended up delicious the way I made it. We loved it over rice.
This recipe comes from February. I came across a recipe for chicken and dumplings that looked interesting. When I went back on my blog to look at the recipe I made before, well, I realized I must have never written about it. I can’t find it! Oops. I definitely made it well over a year ago, so it’s not like I just haven’t caught up to it, I just skipped it, I guess. Well, I had mostly followed a recipe so I looked at it to compare to the new one. I ended up making my own version that we really enjoyed.
