Sweet Sammy was in from Gainesville (where he no longer is a student BECAUSE HE GRADUATED HOORAY HOORAY!!) and I was inspired to make dinner every night.
Somehow we got to talking about dumplings...Mmm. Fried dumplings. A friend of his had spent time in China and introduced Sam to these treats (although he DID eat them, quite likely, when he was tiny...).
So I remembered making them after Bryn was inspired (to ask for them) because of a Throwdown by Bobby Flay. We had another big old batch, plus leftovers, all for the cost of one pound of chicken breast (which I ground myself, btw, with the KitchenAid attachement...)..I forgot to take photos (I know, hard to believe), so here's a photo from that first post, in case you are not clicking through.
Other good stuff this week? Pacos Tacos. Umm. Twice. What can I say? GREAT food, although I have to stop drinking the margaritas bec. they seem expensive, and I am perfecting my margarita skills...
Dorie's Vietnamese Soup again. Awesome. Beside tasting so great, that dish goes together in fewer than 10 minutes, no joke...Here's a photo (and the post on that one, too)....
This week? LOTS of recipe development for a client. Stay tuned! But for now? For now, I'm taking a Sunday nap.
What's for dinner at your house tonight??
Congrats on the graduation!
oh my- my tummy hurts- I just came from a BIG lunch and reading about all this food is making my tummy hurt- wishing I could sample each one but knowing I'm too full :)...I love Jiaozi (gyoza...momo...pot stickers...dumplings...) depending what country you are getting your recipe from...my mom, who was born and raised in Beijing- loves this dish and when her brother was alive- they would make it together anytime they were reunited. We all enjoyed sampling what they made :)
