Greetings Peeps ..........
Hey - I have a follower ! deep joy !
welcome Bernard to my World, thank you for taking the time to comment, at least now I don't feel so lonely.
Well I made a whoopsie yesterday which turned out good ........ read on
I managed to 'bag' two lots of ready prepared veggies at bargain prices of course (I don't buy much without a yellow sticker on or that I can buy in bulk to save money)
Into the slow cooker with them along with stock cubes dissolved in boiling water, herbs and seasoning
Then I made the dumplings, I thought I'd show off a little, so decided to stuff them with a small cube of cheese (extra protein for a veggie) and feeling pretty smug I deposited them in said slow cooker.
About half way through cooking I realised I had made the dumplings using only flour and water ! duh .. (another senior moment) - 'too late now' I thought, I'll leave them and see what happens, I can always chuck 'em away if they cook like rocks.
Anyway, serving up time arrives, and wonder of wonders - the dumplings are well cooked, have retained their softness and taste great ! thus proving you can make dumplings with only flour and water - could be a useful thing to know if you want a low fat version ?
I don't have a picture of the finished result, I was too busy eating it
Anyway, this will last me ages, some last night, a portion tonight, and 4 more portions for the beast in the garage (chest freezer)
Anyway, this lot will last me ages,
