Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

Had a jiaozi party at my apartment this afternoon with some friends from church. Jiaozi, or "dumpling(s)" are quite abundant in Beijing. In the old days, a jiaozi party would involve getting together and actually rolling the dough, putting the stuffing in, and forming the dumplings. All this before even thinking about cooking.

But we take the easy way out. The supermarket as several bins with different kinds of frozen jiaozi, which you scoop out, put in a bag, and buy for a few kuai per jin (500 grams). It's really a pretty simple way to have a cheap meal together, and jiaozi is pretty filling, so no one needs to go away hungry.
