Sometimes I share successful meals, so it's only fair that I share a flop. Tonight's meal was most definitely a flop. I made chicken and dumplings using a recipe I've prepared many times. However. Tonight I tried to make the dumplings with whole wheat flour. Big mistake. The dumplings were heavy with a grainy texture. Then came the major disaster...the whole wheat dumplings thickened the "soup" part of the meal, which in turn burned (and I mean black charcoal burned!) on the bottom of my pan. I'm hoping I can salvage it -- salvage the pan, not the meal.
My husband, though, insists that it tastes "okay," and ate it anyway and said he'll have some for lunch tomorrow. Gross. I don't know whether to question his sanity or give him a kiss. Maybe both. (And I better make a run to the store for some Pepto Bismol...after I finish scrubbing the pan...and airing out the house.)
