Are you guys looking forward to some quality family time this Thursday? I certainly am, we are getting ready to make our way up to Connecticut to spend Thanksgiving with my dad's family on Thursday. There's something special about my dad's Thanksgivings... Rather than just cooking a turkey and all of the delicious assemble that comes with it, there is also another portion of the holiday experience- wrapping Chinese dumplings. It's a duo-Thanksgiving, if you will. As the turkey is stuffed and cooking away in the oven, we (mostly the ladies) will gather around the kitchen table and wrap hundreds of dumplings from scratch. It's one of my favorite traditions in the family. I love how soft the dough feels in my hand as I flatten it bit by bit with the rolling pin. The filling always fill the room with aromas of sesame oil, soy sauce and pork seasoning...There is nothing quite like a handmade dumpling right out of the boiling pot of water. I can't wait, I can almost taste them now...

Hope you guys have a safe and memorable Thanksgiving!
