Now that it’s getting chilly, I’m craving soups and stews
Then as we breathed in the life-giving fragrance, we talked about what we’d make with the stock. I kept vying for chicken stew with leeks and dumplings and couldn’t understand why T kept turning his nose up at it.
Suddenly I understood. He didn’t know that dumplings HAVE to be baked! That they’re ALWAYS baked! At least they always were in our house when I was growing up.
Sure, dumplings that are steamed on the stove-top are good. But dumplings that are baked are better. Way better.
