i went to the grocery store on my home this morning, picked up a few things for today. at home, i made chicken and dumplings, banana bread, and i started sourdough. the chicken stock turned out ok, but my dumplings were meh. i should have added some more flour, rolled it out, and cut them up into pasta style dumplings, instead i cheated and made drop dumplings - same weird sogginess that i hated when my mom made them that way. all in all, it was edible, and my house smelled warm and homey like my grandmas for most of the morning. the banana bread turned out fluffy and yummy. and my sourdough starter is starting to go sour. yay.
