Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I thought I wouldn’t have any more post today, but our dinner last night happened to be quite appropriate for today’s post.
This is definitely not an Irish dish.
But I got the color right.
When I found this beautiful baby back choy at the local Asian grocery store, I knew it was time to make pot stickers!
The filling is a mixture of three kinds of green veggies, baby back choy, edamame beans, and scallion, as well as napa cabbage, garlic, and ginger.
I used up all the wrappers from a package, so I probably made about 50 pot stickers last night.
My mom and I used to make over 200 for the family of four.
From here to…
It doesn’t take long.
And I enjoy the process.
The only stressful thing was that I was running against the sun.
I didn’t start early, and because I wanted to have them ready for a photo-shoot before the sunset, I had to work really fast.
Natural light is everything for food photography, if you ask me (lol).
They turned out great.
Pot stickers are a popular dish at our house.
Terry now knows how to make the dipping sauce, just the way I (we) like.
We went to see the parade downtown today.
I was really hoping to find cool green food/drink, but I was out of luck.
So this was my lunch home today.
I’m glad that I got to have a food picture taken when I was still in my St.Patrick’s Day outfit.
