Cooking with my Grandparents: Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and dumplings, butter beans, and fried okra

Learning Grandma’s chicken and dumplings was also requested by my brother. It wouldn’t okay for Grandma to make it without him also being able to enjoy the meal! So this really was a Grandma and grandchildren effort – even Edward helped!
