My knees and knuckles are screaming at me today. Saturday involved a lot of climbing up and down the ladder and scaffold to finish the window nailing and taping. The hammering of the nails at odd angles contributes to the knuckles, and the up-and-down contributes to the knees. Combine that with the rheumatiz-waking weather, and I'm scarfing down ibuprofen like Britney does goofballs.

Depending on rain, tonight may be working on the house exterior. I'd like to get the Hardiboard on this week before the Haunt Crawl on Friday. More likely it will be grocery shopping, as I'm out of essentials.

How do you make dumplings?

Bisquick, baby. If you're going for chicken and dumplings-type goodness.

do you remember the conversation on dumplings we had the last time we went out for chinese? it was delightful, if I recall.

also, there's a recipe for dumplings on the back of bisquick boxes, but if you object to the use of bisquick, this is the one I've used before.

2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
2/3 cup milk

flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. melt da butter, then slowly add the milk and butter to the flour mixture. it should still be a little lumpy even after it's mixed, but there shouldn't be any obvious bits of flour showing. drop it by spoonfuls into boiling water or hot oil and let it cook for about ten minutes.

if you boil them in the water, salt it a little for flavor. putting garlic in there makes them nice too.
