A very important part of
our family is the evening meal. When the
sun sets and everyone begins to arrive home from a full day I really
enjoy having the evening meal on the table or on the stov3
cooking. Of course, we all have our favorites and below are a sampling
of what we all enjoy. One quick reminder....to me Southern cooking
is a little of this and a little of that(most of the time from memory).....
so not all southern cooks cook alike or prefer the same seasonings. So
try a few of these....and hopefully your family will enjoy
these dishes as much as my family does.
3 cups self-rising flour
1/3 cup shortening
chicken in a large pot with celery leaves and
Boil chicken 'til meat falls off the bone
Take chicken out of broth and set aside
and onion, then strain the broth...
Bring Broth to a boil.
While broth and chicken is coming to a boil ...in a bowl measure out flour....cut the shortening into the flour with a fork or a pastry blender. Add milk until you have a sticky dough....
flour a cutting board, countertop...whatever...and put sticky dough on
it....play with it a little to just get the sticky out....then take
a rolling pin.....covered in flour ....and roll out dough til very thin....this
will make a big circle of dough bigger than a meat platter...LOL....I mean
thin too...like 1/4 inch
At the end
of fifteen minutes take off lid...turn off dumplins....and break
