In the spirit of Chinese New Year and that of dumpling making (which happens every so often, especially when my freezer has a dumpling shortage), I decided to invite a few friends over for a hootenanny. We made dumplings and cookies and drank Belgian beer. I realize how absurd that combination sounds, but we made it work (just not all at once…more like over a few hours). Tiff and I also caught up on Lost. (This season is great!)
Our little soldiers lined up before they’re off to the pan. How come the one in the middle is such a rebel?
