Food: Homemade Dumplings TEN Ways
In the days before children I was a keen cook. I loved spending time flicking through cookbooks, shopping for ingredients and then spending hours in the kitchen preparing meals. Everything I made was keenly appreciated, or at the very least politely eaten. I was thanked for my efforts. It was rewarding.
Now I am a fast and furious cook. I’m keen to get it and out of the kitchen in the shortest time possible. Often my meals are greeted with curled lips and well placed “Eeeews”. Consequently, the repertoire is pretty same-same and safe.
I confess I’ve never made dumplings of any kind (though I confess to consuming my fair share of pork buns). BUT after putting together this post I’m busting to have a go at making some pot stickers. I’m fairly confident that the kids will enjoy them…though we’ll keep our fingers firmly crossed on that one.
