I had most of a whole roast chicken left over from the night before, so I decided to make chicken and dumplings like grandma used to make. I added the deboned chicked to the stock pot along with some chopped onion and celery. I added some salt and pepper, ssge and marjoram for seasoning and let the stock simmer. When the time came to make the dumplins, I went to the pantry to get the flour only to discover that I was totally out of all purpose flour! I did have nealry 15 pounds of bread flour though. I decided to use the bread flour anyway. The whole time I was thinking to myself this is NOT going to work. I mixed up the dough and kneaded it for a few minutes and then rolled it out to about 1/8 inch thick and cut into dumplings. It was hard work getting that tough dough rolled out! My bread flour dumplings took quite a bit longer than usual to cook and become tender, but to my surprise they turned out just fine! Very much like I remember my grandmothers dumplings being. Sometimes a goof just works out. Next time I think I'll try them with all purpose flour just to see though. Thanks for the recipe!
