This is an other memory from my two Uncles (family friends) who lived in the great old Victorian house in the San Francisco area.

This is one of those recipes you are going to use some of the expensive spanish Saffron I told you to invest in.

I still remember eating these wonderful Chicken and Dumplings in the formal dinning with the big bay window over looking the circular driveway.
