Before we arrived Tina and Tommy prepared the flour dough and filling. Knowing that we are vegetarians they prepared a special one for us made of corn, mushrooms, onions, and greens. When we arrived Tina prepared the little pieces of dough and brought the fillings out. And we all pitched in stuffing and pinching shut the little packets. Tommy had the most beautiful method of creating a perfect zipper pattern down the back of his. Mine, were not so beautiful but passed the test as none ruptured during the 10 cooking process in boiling water. Then they were served with a beautiful dipping sauce made of a bit of soy sauce, rice vinegar, hot sauce, sesame oil, garlic,green onions, and a pinch of sugar. Each person usually eats about 20 of the small dumplings if that is the whole meal. What a tasty meal! Now if we could just pick up the slippery little gaffers with our chopsticks without dropping them on our laps!
