Time for soup!!!
I am a big fan of this time of year -- weather's cooling off, days are getting shorter, and the buildup to the holidays is always exciting.
Right now, I think a perfect weekend would be a cold, rainy one.
I'd open the curtains to enjoy the weather, and put on a big ol' pot of soup.
When we're in the mood for something tasty and hearty, Chicken and Dumplings Soup is the answer!
My dad used to make this soup for us pretty often when we were kids.
It was a recipe he learned from his mom -- my Grandma Lucille.
Grandma Lucille's version uses rolled dough to make the dumplings. Like my dad I prefer my dumplings puffy so we always opt to drop the batter by spoonfuls.
This soup is wonderful as leftovers too -- perfect for a busy weeknight!
