All mixed up
Before rolling on the floured counter. I forgot to take a picture of it all rolled out. That's where the problem was. I rolled it too thin.

I've been playing around with a Cookie & Cupcake Decorating kit I picked up on Holiday clearance. I only got 20 of the 24 cupcakes I made frosted but it's ok because that's all that would fit on my tray.

One last word about the concert last night. It was hilarious to hear Pete Townsend's description of Eric Clapton from back in the day.

The ingredients: Eggplant, spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, ground turkey and canned mushrooms. I browned the ground turkey with some minced garlic. While it was cooking, I sliced the eggplant lengthwise. I then started layers in my Pampered Chef square baker. Each layer had eggplant, turkey.....
then spaghetti sauce and mushrooms................ topped off with cheese....
This is just out of the oven. I cooked at 350 for 30-45 minutes.
This picture came out a bit blurry. The family seemed to enjoy it though. Nicholas did comment that it was good and even stated that he usually doesn't like eggplant.

I did cook this last Monday (9/29) though. It's a recipe that I got off an AOL message board. I don't recall which board or the original poster anymore. I will post the recipe with my notes.
Crockpot Chicken & Dumplings
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in small chunks
2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup (I have used cream of mushroom with no problems. I've also used one family size can instead of two small cans)
1/4 cup onion, finely diced (I usually do 1/2 an onion)
2 cups water
2 10 oz packages refrigerated biscuits
1 chicken bouillon cube (I use powdered bouillon)
I did add some fresh mushrooms I had to this batch. That's why they're in the picture.
Combine all ingredients, except biscuits, in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours. 30 minutes before serving, tear biscuit dough into 1-inch pieces. Add biscuit dough to slow cooker; stirring gently. Cover and cook on HIGH for an additional 30 minutes or until biscuits are fluffed up and cooked through.
I have made this dish many times for the whole family and everyone gobbles it up.
