Chinese dumplings

So last night we made chinese dumplings with Matt and Haley, and two other couples - Jim and Wendy, and Josh and Hallie. Chinese dumplings are a Boyd special - that's where we were introduced to them, so it was nice to have Matt and Haley here so we sort of knew what we were doing!
It was loads of fun - one of those meals where everyone is involved in the making, cooking and eating. I only took one picture - of us eating them, but I found some pictures of the making process that I will put up :)

Here's us stuffing our faces. We made a double recipe and even then we polished them all off!
Clockwise from the front: Jim, Wendy, Hallie, Josh, Matt, Haley, Sarah



This is what they look like raw. You put a ground meat (pork and beef) mixture (with chopped spinach, cabbage, garlic, and ginger) on to a wanton wrapper (kind of like a rolled out square of tortilla dough) and then wrap it up.



And cooked (you brown the bottoms in a frying pan and then add water and steam them)



We made a dipping sauce with soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, chopped garlic cloves, grated fresh ginger, and chopped jalapeno peppers... it was sooooo yummy!

Matt and Haley are out of town for the week, so they left their two cats, Motormouth and Bagheera, with us - I love having them around! :) I'll put pictures of them up.
