Tonight Farmer H had Poor Man's Chicken and Dumplings for supper. Not because we're poor. Because he asked for them. Perhaps a better name would be Poor Cook's Chicken and Dumplings. You can make it in 10 minutes. It takes five minutes to open the cans, and five minutes (no more, no less!) to boil the tortilla dumplings.
I think I've related this gourmet recipe before. It's six cans, people! Six cans! Or maybe three, if you don't want leftovers. Two cans cream of chicken soup, two cans chicken broth, two cans chicken, and six or eight flour tortillas, cut into dumpling size. Yeah. I'm sure I told you about this before, because I warned you not to use the whole-grain tortillas, because they will disintegrate! And you'll be left with Poor Sucks-To-Be-You Chicken Gruel. Anyhoo...consider this to be a summer rerun. Because I got nothin' else.
The dogs will enjoy the Poor Cook's Chicken and Dumplings, because they will be having Spoiled Dogs Cream of Chicken Dipped Stale Italian Bread. Hey! It will have a hint of chicken in it! They may not like the ground black pepper much. They should be glad they're getting a whiff of meat, rather than their usual old tortillas and stale chips and a mini Slim Jim. They get regular dog food in the morning, of course. This is just their evening snack. I think Jack was ready for it two hours early, because when I went outside to talk to Farmer H in Poolio, Jack ran around to the back porch and began licking the bottom of his empty food pan.
