Yesterday I wasn't very hungry during the day, and managed to get to dinner time with a lot of uneaten calories in my budget. Time for dumplings!
You need a lot of gravy for dumplings. I had some beef kidney in the fridge; it is very flavoursome and can make a very gravy-ish stew, so I browned them and some onions, and made a good tasty gravy with some white wine. Dumplings, which are basically scone dough with some parsley added, went on top for the last 15 minutes or so of cooking.
Served again with my favourite runner beans, this is real comfort food for me.
