For the meat you can use any leftover steak or chicken or seafood that you have in your fridge, cut up into small strips. I also like to use polish kielbasa, cut into 1/2" slices. Cook white rice on medium heat, should make about 3 cups cooked. Crack and scramble 3 eggs on large frying pan. Cook thoroughly and set aside in a bowl. Using same pan, heat vegetable oil with meat and onion slices until onions are soft and meat is cooked thoroughly. Add cooked rice and about 1/4 cup soy sauce (I never measure it, I usually pour some in and stir it around and add more as needed), add salt and pepper. Stir. Add scrambled eggs at the end and mix everything up well. I know Cliff loves his Texas Pete, so be sure to have a bottle of it laying around for him to add to his plate!

52: Easy Bake for White Fish and Vegetable Bake By Jessica Patterson Italian Bread crumbs* Lemon pepper seasoning* *The amount of these two varies depending on how many fish you are baking. 1 Jar of roasted red peppers 1-2 Tbsp of butter Pam or non-stick spray Heat oven to 350. Spray glass baking dish with Pam. Coat each fish in bread crumbs and lemon pepper seasoning and place in baking dish(can sprinkle extra coating on top). I then put a small pat of butter on the center of each fish and sprinkle the roasted red peppers over them. Cover with aluminum foil and bake about 30 minutes. The peppers make it smell and taste amazing!

63: Chicken and Stock * 1 (3 to 31/2 pound) whole organic chicken * 2 bay leaves * 6 sprigs thyme * 4 to 5 black peppercorns * 1 head garlic, split through the equator * 2 tablespoons salt Buttermilk-Chive Dumplings: * 2 cups all-purpose flour * 1 tablespoon baking powder * 1 teaspoon salt * 2 eggs * 1/4 cup chopped chives * 3/4 to 1 cup buttermilk | Sauce: * 2 tablespoons butter * 2 tablespoons oil * 2 carrots, diced * 2 stalks celery, diced * 2 cloves garlic, minced * 2 bay leaves * 1/4 cup all-purpose flour * 6 cups chicken stock * 1 cup frozen peas * 1 cup frozen pearl onions * 1/4 cup heavy cream * Freshly ground black pepper, for garnish * Chopped chives, for garnish | Chicken & Dumplings By Danielle Gunnels | For the dumplings: Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a small bowl, using a whisk, lightly beat the eggs, chives and buttermilk together; pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently fold. Mix just until the dough comes together; the batter should be thick and cake-like. To prepare sauce: In a Dutch oven, over medium heat, add the butter and oil. Add the carrot, celery, garlic, and bay leaves and saute until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour to make a roux. Continue to stir and cook for 2 minutes to coat the flour and remove the starchy taste. Slowly pour in the chicken stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. Add frozen peas and pearl onions. Let sauce simmer until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 15 minutes. Stir in heavy cream. Fold the reserved shredded chicken into the sauce and bring up to a simmer. Using 2 spoons, carefully drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the dumpling batter into the hot mixture. The dumplings should cover the top of the sauce, but should not be touching or crowded. Let the dumplings poach for 10 to 15 minutes until they are firm and puffy. Remove and discard the bay leaves. Season with freshly cracked black pepper and garnish with chopped chives before serving. | DIRECTIONS For the stock: Place the chicken and all stock ingredients in a large Dutch oven and cover with water. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 1 hour until the chicken is tender. Skim the surface of fat and scum as it cooks. When done remove the chicken to a cutting board. Strain the stock and shred the meat into big pieces - the stock will be used for the sauce and the chicken will be folded into it.
