the annual dumplings of the world festival

there is no christmas goose in my family. 
rather, there is,
here, go to the living room and fill this dough with potatoes for samosas.
or. dip a ball of risotto in bread crumbs so that we can fry them and make arancini...
it's really hilarious to walk around my house on christmas day 
and see a bunch of family friends sitting around, 
drinking mulled wine, 
and making dumplings.
this is stoopie and her pierogi-lovin boyfriend. and pierogi!
and empanadas with vegan sausage {??!?!!?} represented south of the border
new this year was a scary feat,
that we conquered with ease and chickens.
alls we did was use our secret fammy potsticker recipe, 
and then added some gelatinized chicken broth in with the filling {yeah, they were even kosher...}
and they were fantastic!
take that, joe's shanghai :-)

next year's mission?
dessert dumplings...

What a fun festivity! I made pierogis this year for Christmas, not quite as many as you, but I represented Poland!

Now this is a tradition I would love! I'm bored with turkey and candied sweet potatoes. And I always get stuck cooking the turkey, argh.

I hope you and your family had a fantastic Christmas!

Soup dumplings are probably my favorite dim sum things. The only thing I don't like is when I don't realize it's a soup dumpling until after I bite into it and it squirts all over the table.
