What are some good 'all in one' dishes?

Hello, 1st post here.

I like things like stews which allow me to get my vege. meat and other carb. (i.e. bread in this case) all in one dish.

What are some others all in ones like this to vary things up?

Shepard's pie is the first thingn that comes to mind. And it is great for using up leftovers. Make extra mashed potatoes, veggies and meat one night. Then layer them with some gravy . Check out different recipes for this and you will find there are a million ways to make it.

Thanks.

Yes I'm a big fan of these oldschool wholesome dishes (I imagine they were made/evolved for this same reason, with practicality in mind) so more along these lines welcome.

I made a chicken stew with drop dumplings the other night. The dumplings consisted of 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 cup of milk (heated in the microwave for 1 minute)and 3 tablespoons of melted butter.

Welcome to DC!

I like chili, kielbasa and sauerkraut, and this Greek dish!

Mama, chicken and dumplings rank among my favorites!
