Yesterday my wife asked me to make chicken and dumplings for dinner. This is not a recipe -- think of it as a "method". It never comes out the same, but it's always good. What I did yesterday is documented here
This uses my mom's recipe for dumplings, which I like better than any other recipe I've tried. After the chicken is cooked, I spoon the dumplings on top of the chicken, cover, and let steam.

These dumplings are heavy, very filling.

I like Winking Owl wines for cooking (sold locally at Aldi's for @2.97/bottle), but opened Verdicchio for myself. My wife doesn't care for the Verdicchio, tasted the Winking Owl Sauvignon Blanc, and liked it. This wine is "average", it doesn't have significant faults but neither is it exceptional in any way. However, my wife likes it so I will cheerfully make sure some is in stock.
One of the secrets of maintaining a successful relationship is making sure your mate is happy. July marks 30 years of marital bliss, so I've not screwed up too badly -- yet.
