That being said, we still had some warm, comforting dinners this week. On Tuesday evening Christopher roasted a chicken with some potatoes and other veggies.
We enjoyed that for dinner, and then made stock which we used for chicken noodle soup that we ate for a couple of days.
On Friday night we had my work Christmas party, which was fun.
On Saturday evening we went to Christopher's parents' place for a lovely, "Christmasy" evening. We had some snacks and visited. I especially liked the bacon wrapped scallops.
Dinner was chicken and dumplings!
This was my first time having this dish, and it was soooooo good. Comfort food indeed.
We loved the dumplings so much, that we decided to have some for dinner again this evening - beef stew with dumplings.
This will be so good warmed up for our lunches the next couple of days.
How was your weekend?
