I jotted this down when I was a kid out of an old Southern Living cook book. I can't remember the exact year but it would've been sometime between 1979 and 1989. My kids just love it and its so comforting and filling on a cold winter's night! The Dumpling recipe is one that's passed down from my Mom. The original recipe in the cook book called for Bisquick mix, but that's all I can remember about the dumpling portion of the recipe because I've always done it this way. Also as you can tell from the picture, I usually double the dumpling recipe because my kids love em!
