Picture Book Picnic

January calls for comfort food. Suppers that simmer and bubble all day long. And if there's a delightful story for dessert, everyone's sure to live happily ever after. Try a few of my favorites:
This recipe for Chicken and Dumplings is a real keeper. After dinner you can read about the poor wolf who didn't get any chicken at all!

Or let your Magic Pasta Pot bubble like Strega Nona's,

you'll be hungrier than Big Anthony for this Tortellini Soup.



And who doesn't love pancakes for supper once in a while?

Try Martha's version. Just don't get maple syrup on the pages.



Or visit the town of Chewandswallow...

after a bowl of Spicy Meatball Soup.

Mix it once. Mix it twice.

Try this Chicken Soup with Rice.

Wishing you happy eating and happy endings...

What a clever idea, wish I still had small children, but we did make "Thunder Cake" once many moons ago!
