Recipe - Chicken and Dumplings

We had one of my favorite meals last night, chicken and dumplings. It was one of the meals that I made before I had the baby and froze. It even tasted yummy after the freezing process.

Chicken and Dumplings

2 cans cream of chicken soup
3 c. water
1 c. chopped celery
2 onions, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chicken bullion
½ tsp. pepper
4 chicken breasts
5 carrots, sliced
1 sm. pkg. frozen peas
3 c. baking mix
1 1/3 c. milk

Combine everything but the baking mix and milk in the crockpot with chicken on the bottom. Cook on high for 6 hours. Make dumplings by mixing baking mix and milk until a soft dough forms. Drop by spoonfuls into boiling water in large pot. Simmer covered for 10 minutes then uncovered for 10 minutes. Add cooked dumplings to pot the last ½ hour of cooking time.

Palmer is looking so cute! I need to come hold him soon! I also want to try this recipe. I was thinking maybe we should make another blog site, kinda like me and Maegen's scrappin one, and make it a recipe one where we could put recipes. What do you think? Also, I was wondering how do you freeze dinners properly? I want to try.
