Dumplings for you?

Hi my frenz,

Mom had been busy cooking up a storm lately. Pawsonally, I'd prefer if she's cooking food for me to devour. But apparently, that's not the case. It's for those greedy gluttons at home. Anyhoo, she made dumplings soup for lunch. What goes into those dumplings? It's minced meat, shrimps ,chestnuts and some seasoning (you can add in other stuffs too! But this is just a basic filling). She & Dad then started filling up these dumpling skins with the fillings. You see that farnie looking round shaped one? That was made by Dad. He wanted to make it look like a wonton. I'm sorry I don't have the recipe to share cos Mom cooks by memory and doesn't do measurements very well. Everything is a dash of this..a dash of that. *sighz*

Mom put the dumplings into the water to boil. If they start to float, that means they are cooked and ready to be served.

Voila! This is the end product. Dumpling soup with vegetables! :)

I have no idea why she didn't keep any of these for me. Those gluttons just finished every bit of the food! How selfish huh?

That all looks yummy! Can you send some my way? My Mom hasn't made potstickers or wontons in a LONNNNGGG time. Maybe she will make it sometime soon now that you have made her mouth water. Hopefully she will share some with me. But I doubt it.

MMMMM..... those look really yummy. When my girl makes soup, she usually saves a little bit of the broth for us and puts it on our kibble. Yum Yum.

I hate when I don't get a bite of what my paretns make, too. Mom is planning on starting her Christmas baking this weekend and I can't wait! I get to help her with that because she is a slob and needs someone to clean up after her.

Tell your mama that my hooman girl tebie xihuan chi jiaozi! That is one of the things she really misses from living in China... cheap but tasty jiaozi.

Tell her she needs to update your diet to include a few of these each time she makes them.

Goober love,
