This is a great comforting meal for when the weather starts getting colder. My family really enjoys this. Edited 10/16/2007 to add celery stalks.

Call 'em dumplings or don't call 'em dumplings, this was still a very satisfying dish, & the only change I made to it was to use lemon pepper instead of the usual pepper! Very nice comfort food! Will be making this one again, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
