kickin' along country roads


Never in a million years would I have imagined that Neil Sedaka would speak for me but today he does.


I went ahead and used my cell phone to take pictures because I am a man of few words and I need to hide behind pictures. I made dumplings...


In fact I made a few of them....


Steamed them on a banana leaf.....


Ate them with a soy ponzu siracha combo...they were good.

Sedaka?? Seriously?? You never cease to suprise me...and the dumplings look yummy too!

Jeannie said...

Mmmm...dumplings looks delicious! I made some pot stickers but didnt get to take any pictures 'cos my phone battery died on me!

What's wrong with Sedaka? Maybe I'm showing my age - but it was good enough for Sinatra in "My Way." Your dumplings looks great.

I'm not a fan of rainy days but walking hand in hand with the one I love while eating these dumplings would be just my thing!

Dumpling is a sweet and kind of ultra british word! Kind of sirloins chubby little sister (in my self made family of favourite english words) I bet those dumplings tasted good and comforting!

sheri... said...

and i'm curious as to why i wasn't invited to this scrumptious dumpling feast?? i'm going to let it slide this once, as long as you serve something chocolate in the near future ;)
i could have used a few more words, something like where you managed to find banana leaves? it's just a good thing that your photos did all the talking for you today!

teresa said...

The Diva on a Diet said...

Good for you for making due with the phone photos ... and no doubt those yummy dumplings helped to raise your spirits.

Personally, the Sedaka bit made me smile. Its retro! :)

So, are you jonesing for a new camera yet? And Sedaka was OK, although I preferred many others over him. I don't remember him doing anything other than this song, as I think about it. Maybe my early alzheimers is just kicking in today.

Cynthia said...

Yum, yum, yum!

RamblingTart said...

Delish! I've been eating dumplings all weekend and am down to my last three. Sigh. :-)

Neil Sedaka is still around?
Anyway, these dumplings look great and I applaud you for the patience it must have taken to make them!

Joanne said...

Homemade dumplings...total comfort food. And the banana leaf adds a nice touch. I wouldn't even know where to find such a thing.

Angie's Recipes said...

The dumplings look very very delicious even they are taken with your cell phone!

Barbara said...

Made gyoza on my last posting! We are on the same wave length!

buffalodick said...

A song hits me from left field just about every day..never know which one it will be..good lookin' food today!

Jamie said...

OMG I haven't heard this song for years! Oh brings me back! It is a great sing-along song, right? And dumplings as rainy day food? Yes, please!

pigpigscorner said...

Homemade dumplings are always good!

LaDivaCucina said...

I used to play that song on the piano when I was 12...sheesh!

I think we call the dumplings gao gee, I love them with garlic chive and minced pork. Yours look very nice.

LaDivaCucina said...

Oh and by the way, Neil Sedaka was no one hit wonder and had many hits from the '50's and '50's and Carol King was his girlfriend. This was actually a come back hit for him.

doggybloggy said...

LaDiva is right - neil sedaka kicked it for quite some time...

LaDivaCucina said...

I meant '50s and 60's but you knew that, right?! : )
