Can’t ignore my fillings for home made dumplings 🥟 When I was little, my grandma would make me dumplings for lunch. She would wrap each one the night before and wake up early in the morning to cook it for me. I was in grade 3 at the time and kids began to comment on the way your hair looked, what toys you had, or what food you ate. The ones who had McDonalds dropped off, of Lunchables were praised, and the kids like me who brought in dumplings for lunch was laughed at. One time a kid told the teacher something smelled really bad, and it came from me. I was so embarrassed, and packed away my lunch immediately. When I got home my grandma asked, why didn’t I touch my food. I told her to never make me stinky dumplings ever again. I was so mad at her. I stopped eating dumplings until I got a lot older. As time went by, I began to realize, my grandma put effort in packing my lunch instead of dropping off fast food or giving me a pre packaged high sodium lunch. She would stay up at night when I am asleep to start preparing my lunch, then wakeup wayy before me just to pack it up for me. .
My grandma now lives in Canada so she can’t make me dumplings anymore 😂 but my mom, sister, and I make them all the time and we have so much fun. I usually have trouble mixing the right sauce for my dumplings, but good thing @flybyjing has one made perfectly for my palate. I cannot get over their sauces, they are so good. I am usually not a fan of spicy, but I cannot resist @flybyjing 100% natural Sichuan chilli sauce.
