I heart Chinese food and friends!






Steve and Casey are friends we met outside of church on our walk home one Sunday. Last weekend, Casey taught us how to make scrumptious Jiaozi, a special Chinese dish! (Thanks for helping me figure out how to spell it, Mary!) They are so yummy and somewhat of a labor of love to prepare. Casey really did all of the hard work, but Mary and I were eager to learn and had fun with our attempts to make our jiaozi like Casey showed us. =) They taste kind of like empanadas and there is something similar at PF Changs, but I think these were much better! This was such a fun night, and don't even ask how many we ate. Thanks for hosting, Adam and Mary!

Mary, if you zoom in on the one where we're cooking, it looks like we are really serious or praying or something. Guess we were very focused!

about the laundry detergent.. I think it works really well! I think Zote has a light fragrance to it, so it smells nicely. Also, if you are using dryer sheets or fabric softener then that will do the trick too.

I think it is a great way to save $$ off your grocery bill. let me know if you try it!

YUM!! How come I don't meet friends like that when I walk? :) I, too, love friends and Chinese food- great combination!
