Hear Ye, Hear Ye: Here – the Place for Last Minute Gifts

Hello Winter!

No, most people are not glad you are here. However, since you are here, we’ll soak up some cozy time by the fire, or curled up under the blanket with a mug of something hot. Tea? Hot Chocolate? Cappuccino? Coffee? Spiced Chai? or maybe one of each. Find every single one of these at The Country Cupboard!


Actually right now we don’t have time for relaxing. We’re still hustling and bustling and finding gifts for all those special people. Looking for stocking stuffer ideas? Fudge (in cute little cups with spoons!!!), individual candy or chocolate, nuts, beef sticks, shelf stable cheese, body care products (see info below) – you name it – they will be happy with what you can find here.


Even though winter is here, we’re going the other way toward longer days. And that’s something to be excited about!!!

Chicken Dumpling Soup

Serves 20
I love this soup. It’s easy to make and serves a lot of people. Freeze the leftovers. Canned chicken makes it easier, too. Find it at The Country Cupboard!
12 green onions, chopped
½ c. butter*
½ c. flour*
10 c. water
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen peas and carrots
4 c. chunk chicken, drained*
1/3 c. chicken bouillon granules*
½ tsp. pepper, divided*
2 Tbsp. dried parsley*
5 c. buttermilk biscuit mix*
1 1/3 c. milk
*Ingredients available at The Country Cupboard

Saute onions in butter, stir in flour until blended. Add water and veggies, 2 cups chicken, bouillon and ¼ tsp. pepper; bring to boil. Combine buttermilk biscuit mix, parsley and pepper. Stir in milk until moist. Fold in remaining chicken. Drop by tablespoonfuls into simmering soup. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until dumpling is baked. (do not lift lid while simmering).  Serves 20.
