Sounds good. But I'm not a big dumplin fan. I love fresh homemade soups!

My Mom was an expert at making dumplings, I'm a total disaster!!
Also a great favorite with the Germans - one can even buy it ready made, but I know it just won't taste the same as home-made!
I have this incredible burning feeling in my stomach - I do believe I'm hungry now. LOL!!
