Homemade Dumplings

1 tablespoon parsley flakes, if desired
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons shortening
3/4 cup milk

Mix flour, parsley, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk.
Drop spoonfuls of batter into boiling chicken, vegetables, and stock. Place lid onto pot andcontinue to boil for 15 to 20 minutes. Spoon over mashed potato's if you are a northerner, or eat alone if you are in the south......or if you are ugly. Best served at a picnic table in the kitchen surrounded by lawn chairs.

p.s. Just in case your prone to dumplin splatter take a gander at our red check's right nice.
