Purple Rain

We're in a flash flood warning right now. Yesterday was in the sixties, today it was in the high fifties and started pouring around 4 pm like the skies just opened up, with a handy severe wind as well. Tomorrow is supposed to be around 35! Climate change, kiddos, it's here to stay.

In fantastic news though, a little dumpling place has opened up opposite the building I work in. It has a teeny menu (only 7 items) and everything is cheap, so if you bought one of everything and a drink, it would only be around $17. But I like to stick with the fried pork dumplings. It's rare to find really yummy dumplings here in the Appalachian mountains. You can find them on every Chinese buffet table, but they'll be limp sad tough approximations of what a good dumpling should be. These are really good, though, almost as good as the best I've had, which come from a little hole in the wall about 5 minutes from work.

Does anyone else have a favorite food that you are super picky about? One that you grade in your mind from restaurant to restaurant?

  1. Ooh, dumplings. I'm not really a super-picky person about any food--maybe I just don't have a discerning palate?--but I will always swear that the dishes at the Thai restaurant where my mom worked for ten years are better than any others. That's just how it is!
