Turkey and Dumplins & One more thing it is NOT.

I decided to make Turkey and dumplins yesterday as it was So cold out and Michael is working on a cold... and it simply sounded GOOD.
It turned out way more than good it was fantabulous, the smoked turkey added a dimension of flavor that I did not  expect.

the little bit that was left over Michael and Martha split and  devoured... and said it was better the next day than the first day... hard to imagine that.   we are thinking up all kinds of things to smoke and enjoy in the coming years... and different Ideas of ways to make the left overs into something amazing too :)

On to today... had my appointment with The retina specialist... He is more confounded and disturbed than I am at this point.   the blood work for Cat scratch fever is negative as is everything else that I have been tested for... The list of ruled out things is as follows and there are some others I am not sure of the correct names of... but, Brain tumor, pseudotumorcerebri, MS, syphilis, gonorrhea, diabetes, TB, scarodoisis, several other things that were tested with the spinal fluid all ruled out or are Normal!!! Ha HA HA look out I AM NORMAL!... the only test left we are waiting for results on is Lyme disease... the Dr's are sending me to an infectious disease Dr in hopes that he will be able to turn up something that maybe was missed or a faulty blood test ... I go to him next week and the week after I go back to the neurologist then in a month back to the retina Dr... the good news of the day my vision and eye are NO WORSE... they are no better either ... but no worse is good. 

Hope all  is well with all of you in the New Year :) 
God Bless you and Keep you Until we meet again!

You really must share your dumplin recipe! I haven't had a good one since my grandmother made them a bajillion years ago.
Hope your 2012 is wonderful for you!

I've always thought that you were pretty normal... but it feels good to get proof from the doctors, doesn't it?. It sounds like they are checking everything. Thumbs up for being so "normal".
Love the soup photo. Looks delicious. That smoker is going to be working overtime. I can tell.
Enjoy it.
Love and Grits

Boy--that sure looks good right now. I've got a sinus infection, and I can almost smell it--bet it would help it, too.

I've been praying for you and your family each night, Laura. Hope things are straightening out for everyone.
