A Conversation in the Midst of Marriage.  
Carrie. (To Nolan) Do you like chicken and dumplings?

Nolan. (Chuckles) I've never had chicken and dumplings.

Carrie. (Incredulous) How can you have never had chicken and dumplings?

Nolan. Oh, I don't know. Maybe because it's soggy bread and boiled chicken? Actually, it's not even bread. It's bread that never got a chance to be bread. It's a gelatinous goo of soggy bread and dirty old yardbird. What I don't understand is your preoccupation with chicken and dumplings. It's soggy bread. You hate soggy bread. Take bread pudding. You have soggy bread and dump a bucket of sugar and bourbon on it, and you won't touch it with a ten foot pole. Tiramisu? Espresso and those fancy stupid cookies and cinnamon? No way. But chicken and dumplings you go on and on about. I don't get you.

Carrie. I'm sorry, I drifted off. Did you say you would try it, or not?

Nolan. No.

Carrie. I wish you wouldn't hold back. It's so hard to tell how you feel.

Nolan. Sorry.

I love chicken and dumplings. BUT I also love bread pudding so I can see how Nolan Kyle believes there to be a correlation.

Well, we generally prefer things to be brown and crispy over here... but he's right. Other than the C&D!

Mmm. Dumplings. Just make them and see how it goes. I bet he'd eat them. Bread pudding is the bomb diggity, by the way. One of my favorite desserts.

He's right that I don't like soggy bread. I just can't get past the texture.

Chicken and Dumplings are made of win!!! I LOVE them, so does my husband. And dumplings are NOT soggy bread! Go ahead and make them. If Nolan won't eat any, that just leaves more for you. ;)
