All set for the Daddy Daughter Ball!
(only on holidays they get to wear lipstick :)
And Party "Animals"
This year's theme is "Jungle"
What an evening of adventure!
That was the beginning of the month.
And this is the end of the month!
In between, I spent 3 weeks with the flu and each other family member was able to get it as well! That was rough to say the least, but provisions were abundant!
And love was never scarce!
Now it's time to celebrate China!
We returned from China 2 years ago on April 25th.
And now we have our own family holiday!
Celebrate China Day! And we celebrate China...
by making jiaozi!
(we used beef instead of pork and added onions, carrots, celery, spinach, seasoning)
and stuffed them in jiaozi pi (actually hundun pi, but who noticed?!) and made
In China there's about 1 way to wrap a jiaozi.
In our family there are at least 9 ways. :)
No matter what shape they are...
They ALL taste amazing after they are cooked!
Well, maybe not "all."
The first time we ever made jiao zi (I'm not even sure how long ago that was)
We thought we'd be able to tell whose jiao zi was whose after it was cooked.
Can still tell at this point!
Oh, uh. Hmm. Can't tell anymore!
And what happened so quickly?! 150 jiaozi disappeared FAST!!
Now we have happy faces, full bellies and thankfulness in our hearts for China :).
