Bacon, Chicken & Dumplings

My head was not in the game today. For starters I must have set my phone's alarm wrong because it didn't go off. New phones are such a love/hate situation. Thank goodness the girls didn't have school today. Then I made my first cup of coffee and went to let the dog out. When I returned I had a cup of hot water. *hmm* I used coffee grounds for my next cup. Much better. When the kiddos finally did wake up we did the grocery shopping. Which for some reason was $50 less than normal. We may or may not be eating later this week even though I checked the list twice. This afternoon I wanted to start the popcorn strings so I popped the popcorn. Oh, I'm sorry I mean I burned the popcorn kernels. Threw them away and started another batch. Burned them too. Gave up on that task for the day. Finally while making dinner I just couldn't follow directions. *lol* I have had enough already and shall retire to the living with a hot chocolate (and peppermint snchapps) and call it a day.
Recipe from
3 slices bacon
3 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1 onion, diced
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, diced
3 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1 (15.25 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed
3 cups half and half
1-1/2 cups biscuit mix
1 cup milk
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside; reserve bacon drippings in skillet. Add potatoes, onion and chicken to bacon drippings and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in chicken broth; season with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in corn, and simmer all together for 15 minutes. Pour in half-and-half and bring to a boil; add crumbled bacon. In a medium bowl, combine biscuit mix with milk and mix well (dough should be thick). Drop tablespoon sizes of dough into boiling mixture; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, then another 10 minutes covered. (Note: Do not stir while simmering, or dumplings will break apart). Serve hot.

Oh you poor thing you had a day huh!?!? I've never done popcorn strings before....I feel like it would entice the dog way too much to be IN my tree...we did fake berries on year and he ate them all off. The dumplings sound so delicious - perfect for a rainy day!
