Down Memory Lane...

I decided to make Chicken and Dumplings last night for supper. One thing that I learned from my Mom about dumplings is that they have to be HOME MADE! So I put on my apron (and yes it has my name on it, you know everything in this house is monogrammed or personalized!!), cleared off the kitchen island, sprinkled with flour, and rolled out my dough! Notice in the picture below that there is a plate of chocolate chip cookies (NOT home made) on the stove. Are you impressed yet, LOL!!!
The kids pulled up chairs to watch and when I had my back turned would grab some of the dough to eat. This brought back such wonderful memories because I use to do the exact same thing when my Mom made dumplings.
They tasted great and everyone enjoyed them! Thanks Mom for teaching me how to make so many wonderful meals!!! I hope that my kids can learn a few things from me too.

Oh Wow! My Mother In Law makes homemade noodles and dumplings, I should pay attention.

As a side note, I see you are interested in photography. There is a free forum I am a part of if you are interested :)

Cool...I am glad I am not the only mom who occasionally wears an apron and cooks from scratch! I am very impressed. My hubby loves chicken and dumplings but it one of those things I have always been intimidated by.

Yummy! I make chicken and noodles. Same as dumplings but I cut them into thick strips. EVERYBODY loves them too! One of my favorite dishes as well.

But I want a monogrammed apron too!!!
