If you are into Chinese cooking, Martin Yan's Quick and Easy Cookbook is pretty good. We've liked almost everything I've made from it, especially this sweet and spicy Shrimp dish. Yummy! Well, in honor the Year of the Dog, I made a recipe called Monday Night Dumpling Soup. I made it on a Tuesday, but hey it tastes good any day of the week! Now being that this soup is from a book called *Quick and Easy* I used store bought frozen dumplings. The end result was quite delicious. Also, since most meals I make need to be *Quick and Easy* I also steamed up some frozen Cha Sui Bao (Sweet Pork Buns) to have with it. Now, those fans of Dim Sum know that Cha Sui Bao is some fantastic stuff. RM could eat these things all day. Both SWB (my picky eater) and Little Girl (who'll eat anything) scarfed these babies down. You must try one if you haven't. Speaking of Little Girl, seeing as she's a bit too young to pick her own blog alias, I have decided to name her myself. Can't have the whole family have cool aliases and hers be the plain one, now can I? I am dubbing her Princess of Quite a Lot (Englebreit reference), PQL for short. I think anyone who has a little daughter, or a little niece understands the reference. I got my sock pal match yesterday as well. I'm very excited! The door seems to be wide open design wise, but I do have a rather big constraint. My sock pal doesn't want any socks made with wool, even a little bit of wool. That really narrows the field of sock yarns I can use. Plotting has commenced. Oh, and I'm one sleeve away from coming home off of sleeve island. My brain is weary, but I look forward to the blocking and seaming so I can get the button bands and collar on Twist.
