Homemade Dumplings



We decided to have a hotpot dinner on the eve of Chinese New Year.  What hotpot dinner is ever complete without dumplings?  We started preparing the dumplings early afternoon (recipe here).  We used store-bought wrappers, but the we made the fillings ourselves.  Zoë loves helping out. She’s gotten pretty good at wrapping the dumplings and planted herself in the kitchen insisting on helping with everything.  Here’s one of her ‘creations.’

Here’s wishing everyone a happy Year of the Sheep!
