Easy on the pocket DUMPLINGS

Yes, you heard it. Dumplings. Ever made them? I never did until I started trying to find frugal dinners on the net. Now anytime I make a soup or stew, I jazz it up by throwing in some dumplings. Its super yummy and filling.

2 tbsp vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
1/4 instant milk (or instead of water and dried milk just add 3/4 cup of milk)
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients then add wet ones and stir until mixed together.Drop dough into simmering liquid of choice, and cover for 15 minutes. Allow to set for 5 minutes.

Cornbread Dumplings
Do the same as above except reduce flour to 1 cup and add 1/2 cup of cornmeal. And then prepare the same way.
This is expecially yummy when you use anything involving tomatoes or beans. mmmmmm
