Sunday Cooking Cancelled, Dumpling Time!

It may have been the number of bottles glasses of champagne I had yesterday, but I was just so not up for cooking today. I tried. I cut up the lamb for the vindaloo, but I cut my finger while slicing the onions. And then I put in the whole pack of spice mix, instead of the 2 tablespoons I needed. Whoops. And then I got a text saying a bunch of people are going to the Dumpling Inn tonight. That's it. Cooking's off till tomorrow. It's going to be an unplanned week.

The Dumpling Inn is in fact the reincarnation of the Aranda Dumpling Inn that burned down maybe four years ago. I never made it there, but people had raved about the quality. This version is in Jamison, in Lawry St, near the Turkish restaurant. I won't write a lengthy review, I'm too tired. Suffice it to say that I'm stuffed very full; the dumplings were great; the food was fresh & good; the toffee apples tooth-rottingly yummy. I can't move.

It was a tired and sleepy sort of a day, no? Th'Bloke and I hit the new Bungendore deli and bought an armful of their home-made pies (rabbit, beef, and chicken'n'veggies), plus bread and home-cured ham. The Pies plus freshly-pulled salad veggies from the garden (red cos, green fluffy stuff, plus red oak and asian veggies gone to head - the flowers are a lovely salad mix) with home-grown broccoli and bought snow peas made up dinner. Yum.
