Since we are speaking officially here…I can tell you that December officially makes this Chicken and Dumpling season! No no…I know you all thought it meant holiday season was upon us. My apologies, but you have been misinformed. It is officially the season for chicken and dumplings! Nothing like an icy, winter night and a piping hot bowl of a southern classic
Oklahomans, man. No one is as particular about their vegetables as we are. In one word? Finicky. I like that word…finicky. Oklahomans are finicky. We have two requirements for our vegetables. 1) Must be battered. 2) And then deep-fried. Now this is not a problem for most people…except for the unfortunate fact that I am not most people. After a stint in Nutrition class I have been rendered a hapless, health junkie. Yup, I traded in the mars bars for celery, peanut butter, and sweat bands (just kidding about the sweat bands). So how does one go about spreading her vast nutrition knowledge to others?? By hiding pure, unadulterated vegetables in the most obvious of places…PIZZA!
Alright alright…I know you guys just loooove heart-attack inducing southern meals, but the time has come…to talk of many things. Of shoes and ships and sealing wax…Of cabbages and kings! Hold on…That’s Alice in Wonderland. You guys aren’t here for that. But the time has come for some healthy food! Now don’t groan!! And hey! Stop rolling those eyes at me!
