What year was that? She worked there until 1990. Their second daughter was born in British Columbia and the third one was born in Moscow, Idaho. My daughter got her degree last year, and now she and her husband both work at the U of I where daughter #1 is a student. My son-in-law was born at Atlantic City, BTW. They are both good cooks, as is my other daughter and my son. I need to copy down some of these gravy recipes....yummy!
Oh, I was there a few years after your daughter.

Speaking of tomatoes, maybe if I get a chance, I'll post my puttanesca recipe here.

Hi Minnesota! Speaking of gravy. I have had friends who made disastrous slop and called it gravy. One made a thick paste out of grease, another fancies herself to be a great cook and had us to Thanksgiving dinner a few years back. The turkey was half immersed in water in an aluminum kettle that was in the oven. She asked me to make the gravy out of a gallo ...[text shortened]... s... roast beef... she gave the beautiful brown pan drippings to the dog! What a sacrilege.:'(
Why on Earth was the turkey immersed in water? She cooked it that way? I've never heard of that!

Maybe she thought it was a roast? 😕

That reminds me, my mom used to make boiled chicken when we were kids, kind of the same concept. Boiled in water. It was horror! 😞

Boiled chicken?! Horrors! I've got one of those counter-top rotisseries (Ron Popeil). It makes a heck of a nice chicken. That's the ONLY way to cook chicken really.

My only uncle...my dad's brother...lived to be 108 and his wife was the worst cook imaginable. They had a farm and practically lived on boiled chicken. So it must be good for you! His mother ....my grandmother...taught my mom a dish they called English Pot Pie. It was stewed chicken but you added potatoes and made a large type of noodle which was cream and flour rolled out and cut into wedges, then dropped into the boiling broth. I thought it was marvelous as a kid...and called it Popeye. I thought it was great fun to stand on a chair and carefully drop those noodles in the pot, one by one. When I was a working gal I used to eat at a drugstore that featured one meal at noon for 50 cents. Imagine my surprise to find this the main course one day. The cook/waitress said it was a southern dish! But it had a different name.

That is strange, I've never heard of such a thing.

Maybe it was Chicken and Dumplings?

mlprior calls them Baking Powder Biscuits, we always called them buttermilk biscuits. Although I'm not a purist... pillsbury biscuits out of a can are just as good without all the fuss.

I think you're right. But most dumplings are fluffy.
