Well after our brief power outage and some generator problems I had a few partially thawed items in the freezer. I had the last pack of smoked turkey and some pierogies ( Mashed potatoe and chedder ). Well I decided to create something as usual. My wife says the turkey is a bit on the chewy side so I decided to boil it along with the pierogies for maybe 15 minutes. In the mean time I made a roux ( I didn't use a recipe but had to look in the book for the correct spelling) In the mellted butter I added a couple cloves of chopped garlic and a half a small onion then let it go a bit and added some flour, browned that and then added milk and salt n pepper. Greased a casserole dish with pam and with a slotted spoon added the meat and pirogies, covered with sauce and a sprinkle of paramasean, and baked at360 for 20 mins. This tasted like good chicken and dumplings to me and the next time I make it will add some celery and maybe carrots.
