Hanoi Jane Or Can I rewrite The Past?

Jane Fonda known forever as Hanoi Jane is whining because her traitorous
past has once again bitten right square on the butt.
“I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us.” Ahh Jane.. aiding and abetting the enemy in a time of war…
jog your memory? A little country Vietnam?

In 1972, during the Vietnam War, Fonda took a two-week trip to North Vietnam, where she was photographed sitting on an antiaircraft gun that North Vietnamese forces used for shooting at American planes.

After her trip to Hanio: …..Fonda told the world press that U.S. prisoners of war were being well treated and not tortured. Her outrageous claims were later exposed when American POWs were finally freed and told of years of agonizing tortures and inhuman treatment. Fonda responded, not with an apology, but with an accusation calling our returned POWs “liars and hypocrites.”

Traitor Jane Fonda

It has always been my opinion and that of TheMasterOfTheUniverse that
Jane Fonda(Hanoi Jane)aided and abetted our enemy by making propaganda
broadcasts from North Viet Nam to our troops.
This is called treason…. She is as guilty of treason as Tokyo Rose was.
She should have been given a fair trial and then lined up against a wall and shot.
She however was protected because her Father Henry Fonda stepped in.

American Veterans have NO Problem recognizing a traitor,in fact a quick look around the blogosphere has me concluding that just the mention of Hanoi Jane is enough to get
Vet’s pretty worked up.
1stcavmedic has a piece as well as TheGateWayPundit
Nope Jane, not a chance that our Vietnam Vets are gonna get over this.

Chicken~N~Dumplings

BlogHer and Knorr teamed up with a terrific idea.Take a product send it to a bunch of creative women to have them utilize it in a favorite recipe, then judge the results and pick eight winners.
The eight winners will win a trip to BlogHer 11, as well as a chance to become one of the “Knorr Four”.
So in the fun spirit of cooking at which I excel, here is my recipe entry.

Chicken and Dumplings.

Chicken in a pot

2 chicken breasts (boneless and skinless)
5 stalks of celery – left whole
1/2 of a large onion cut into quarters.
1/2 tablespoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine ingredients in a stock pot cover with 14 Cups of water and bring to a boil.Boil for 10 minutes. Reduce heat then simmer for 30 minutes.
Remove celery, onion and discard. Place chicken on a cutting board and dice.

Knorr Home style Concentrate

Add 4 containers of Knorr home style chicken concentrated stock. Stir until concentrate is dissolved then adjust water level back to about 14 cups… give or take..
You will taste the rich roasted flavor that tells you its right.

Chicken broth with chicken

Bring back to a simmering boil, add chicken.
While the chicken is doing its 30 minute simmer, you can start your dumplings.

Dumpling Recipe
1 1/2 Cups of white flour.
4 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup milk
2 eggs

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
Stop here and continue after adding chicken into your stock pot with the Knorr chicken concentrate. While your chicken is coming back to it’s simmer, make a hollow in the middle of the flour mix and add the eggs beaten into the milk. Stir briskly until all ingredients form into a ball. Using your floured fingers, carefully dump tablespoon size bits of dumpling mix into the simmering broth.

Dumpling Mix

Cook uncovered for 10 minutes, then cover and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Dumplings In Stock Pot

Serve it up with a salad, and fruit for a simple family meal that serves 6.
Enjoy!
