And the verdict was...

Maybe too much sage in the chicken and dumplings, but that was my fault. It is easy to ADD spices, and difficult to do that substracting thingy, once it has been dumped in. Dick said my dumplings tasted more like stuffing than dumplings, so I'll make this again and adjust accordingly. It was really GOOD and "easy peasy," just like Bee said, so I served them with a side of green peas. It was the right thing to do.

And this is what I made for my sister-in-law, recycling some pearls from a broken necklace that belonged to my Mother. My brother isn't doing well, and since I can't be there to help out, I figured I would make Barbara something special to brighten her up.
And I wish Judy and Jerry a very happy anniversary today. They are mighty good folks.
Count your blessings, y'all! Life is good...especially when you have good health, so take good care of that body. Such as it is, it's the only one we've got! Happy Sunday!!!

Very pretty! I can't wait to try some dumplin's for myself. (No, that is not a typo. In the South, "-ing" is pronounced "-in." Just sayin'.)

A recipe is merely a guidline, adjust to your liking!

I love that necklance and earring set! And using your Mother's pearls makes it all the more special! You're such a thoughtful sweetie.

Big Hugs xo

Ciao Sandy!!!

Very good!!!
We have another recipe, canederli, that are like these dumplings, but not so "soft"
The necklace is very pretty, you give me an idea to recycle many necklaces my granchildren have done "kaput"!!!
Have a lovely Sunday evening!!!

Love your beads. They're very nice! The last few times I've fixed something special that I've fixed a gazillion times before, I've managed to botch it up.
I hope things are better for your brother....
I really like your new page! It's fun to change things up now and then - especially if you know what you're doing!
~~~Blessings~~~
And thanks for visiting Levon!

Well, since chicken/turkey and dressing ranks way up on my list of "all time favorite" meals, I would probably have loved the dumplin's WITH the sage! Sounds delicious! And "recycling" the pearls was a great idea for the necklace and earrings. I'll have to take another look in my mother's jewelry box...
Hugs!

Well, I like dressing and sage so I'd have loved it.

Now I'm hungry. Big hug. :)
