Homemade Chicken and Dumplings from Mary Lois Burfield

dumplins, flowers, cornbread 001The other night I wanted something different. I thought and thought of what I could make. I went to the kitchen and looked in the freezer. I had all kinds of chicken, now what to do with it? I grabbed a cookbook from the rack and it happened to be the cookbook from the First Baptist Church at Forrest City. I flipped to the index and there it was. Supper!!! Chicken and dumplings. Yum-Yum!! I read the ingredients and I had it all so away I went. (I try to have a little of everything on hand to make anything from scratch. Never know what I am going to try.) The recipe was easy and I followed it. When I started to post about it, it was from my long-time Forrest City acquaintance and Facebook friend, Mary Lois Burfield. I know she is a good cook, so this was going to be good. She got her recipe from Mrs. Clay……….Wonder if I knew her? Well, they were great. I’ll know what not to do next time. But, it was really easy and I never mind making dough and using grandmother TeeTee’s rolling-pin.  Oh, I made mini cornbread muffins with cheese and peppers. Thanks, Mary Lois!!!!chicken and dumplingsdumplins, flowers, cornbread 001dumplins, flowers, cornbread 002
