Notice the big gap in the teeth? The boy lost a tooth today!
We came home to enjoy a big pot of chicken soup with dumplings. Dancer made our favorite dumplings, here is the recipe.
3 Tbsp. shortening
1 1/2 Cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 C. milk
Cut shortening into flour, baking powder and salt with a fork until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk. Drop dough by spoonfuls into soup. Cook uncovered 10 minutes. Cook 10 more minutes covered.
To make these really tasty we add a handful of shredded cheese or some dried herbs before adding the milk.
