Lovin' Leftovers: Turkey and Dumplings

I have never met a dumpling I didn't like, but dumplings don't really fit into the weekday diet that the BF and I "enjoy."  (I use the term enjoy very loosely).  When I came across this recipe for chicken and dumplings from his royal sparkliness, Richard Simmons, I knew I had to give it a try.

I've made this recipe a few times before, but never this way.  In place of all of the veggies that the recipe calls for, I used a cup and a half of onions, one cup of celery, and one cup of carrots. 

I also substituted whole wheat flour for all purpose flour, and used leftover turkey in place of the chicken.

 The BF actually liked this version, with the whole wheat dumplings, better than the original, and I have a feeling it's going to become a dinner staple in the Cookin' in Heels home!

I'm loving these, for their chic twist on the traditionally sweet mary jane.

The color and the teeny tiny strap, combined with the peep toe, make these the perfect, sassy version, in my opinion!
