Sorry for not getting this up sooner.....could have done it last night if my eyes had stayed open! @:)
To start with, my sister bought a bag of the soup, so no big deal there. The Cornbread Dressing Dumpling recipe came from a Nov 2003 Southern Living and is supposed to go with the turkey soup made after Thanksgiving. I've gotten to where when I'm hungry for dressing, I'll make this using broth or soup base, which is what I did last night. My bean soup pan was too small to put the dumplings in so I made them in another pan and it worked out great....gave a little more broth, too. The pan I used wasn't really big so it took 3 batches but I had doubled the recipe.
Cronbread Dressing Dumpling Dough
2 T butter or margaarin
1 celery rib, diced
1/2 small sweet onion, diced (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 tsp rubbed sage (I like more)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp seasoned pepper (I used regular)
1/2 tsp salt (I don't use as much because I think the salt from the broth adds it)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup milk
Melt butter in a small skillet. Add celery, onion, and sage; saute over med-hi heat 3 minutes. Combine cornmeal and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; add egg, milk, and celery mixture, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Makes about 1 1/2 cups dough.
Drop by tablespoonful (not heaping...it swells up) into simmering soup/broth. Cook 5 minutes. Cover and cook 15 more minutes or until dumplings are done.
Feel free to adj or add any seasonings that suit your fancy! I doubled it for 5 of us last night.....my mom had 2 small helpings and I'm told she doesn't even like bean soup.
LOL, Beverly. We don't want anything like 'health' to interfer with the casino plans! My mom has been sleeping alot. I check on her every 15 or so minutes to make sure she's still breathing. We walked down the road to the mailbox yesterday afternoon and she wouldn't sit in her wheelchair on the way back, but wanted to walk, so I let her. We try to allow her as much physical activity as she will do. The wind just about blew us back home, anyway. I hope you enjoy the week-end with your mom and dad.
Rosa, Golfing is exercise!!! You're doing good!!! I think just getting out and moving around more is very helpful!
Sally, Good for you for being faithful to walking. You do what works for you and keep it up. So much new foliage and flowers to see at this time of year, too. Don't you just love those GC??? My middle daughter didn't think twice about driving to Florida from Indiana just for a week-end a few years ago....and she'd drive straight thru! 17 hours! Takes her a little longer now (22 hours last week-end) and she stays longer, too.....I like that part. @:)
My sister left work early and took me to a quilt store the other day. I bought some WOW and had a good look around. I'm saving my big purchase for the fav quilt shop in Indiana.
Y'all have a great day and KOKO...... @:)
