mockturtle soup (don’t ask why it’s called like that; i don’t know and can swear it doesn’t contain any turtle in it, mock or not) + hot buttered bread.

i wish i could be as motivated and organized as those flickr folks and register my daily food intake in pictures, as they do. but i know i’m bound to fail miserably at this task, so i’ll settle for posting only when i feel like/remember.


6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 cups water
1 tablespoon butter
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups all-purpose baking mix
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cold water

In a large pot over medium heat, simmer chicken in 6 cups water until no longer pink. Remove chicken, cool and shred.
Return shredded chicken to pot and stir in butter, salt and pepper. Cook until chicken reaches desired tenderness, 15 to 60 minutes.
In a bowl, stir together baking mix and milk until smooth. In a separate bowl, stir together flour and 1/2 cup cold water until smooth. Stir flour mixture into soup; bring soup to a rolling boil.
Drop baking mix mixture by tablespoonfuls into the boiling water, neatly around the chicken. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, 10 minutes. Then cover and cook 10 minutes more. (Sneak a spatula under the dumplings to prevent chicken from sticking to the bottom of the pot.) Serve hot.
