Galley & Dumplings

After finishing off the Cowboy Pot roast, Senior Management and I decided that I must make another Dutch Oven dish.  This time I made “Chicken Dumpling Stew” (A few Pics Below).  It turned out really well.  I used a recipe found in the cookbook “Texas Treasury of Dutch Oven Cooking“.  The corn was processed & preserved by my mom.  The dumplings, however, were my own creation.

Since I am allergic to wheat (not just intolerant), I have to come up with creative solutions for breads.  My wife has developed a pretty good biscuit mix that worked really well in the recipe.  Here is the Biscuit recipe

Gluten Free Biscuits

Basic Flour Mix

2 1/2 c. Rice Flour
2/3 c. Potato Starch

Biscuit Mix
1 1/4 c. of the Basic Flour Mix
1/4 c. buttermilk
1 egg
1 Tbs Shortening

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 min.

That’s It!

For the dumplings, I didn’t bake the dough.  I simply put them in the DO like any other dumpling dough.

This is good stuff.  I think I am addicted now.  I plan to make another tonight and perhaps one more this weekend. I’d like to make a cake or brownie. It is a bit frighting though because I think it would require a bit more discipline.  We’ll see.  There are some tasty pics at the end of this post.

As far as the jPod is concerned, I have done some work on the cabin & galley cabinets.  Plus, a bit more work on the cabin doors.  Senior Management started the doors and then they sat for a while because I have been researching and thinking about a design change.  We also rearranged our plan for the galley.  I have added a new drawing of the configuration (see: Galley).

Until Next time.
