How is everyone doing? Here in Toronto, the weather has been cooling down quickly. I have had to transition into my tights, leggings, and sweaters already! It is sad to see Summer go, but I have go to say that I am loving this fall. =) I can't wait to cuddle up to something fuzzy and drink hot drinks in front of the fireplace. ;) Share with me your favourite things about fall?
So, remember last time when I told you all that I had guests over for a month? Well...I've been greedy and keeping this to myself a little too long. I had the pleasure of having the traditional home-made dumplings. Everything was made from scratch; from the dumpling skins to the delicious mixture on the inside.
If you've never had them this way, you will have to try it out. I swear to you that you will never want to go back. (But realistically, no one really has the time to make this all the time.)

|Freshly done dumplings. These didn't have shrimp in them (cuz I'm allergic)|
|Oh the delicious concoction of chilli oil and soya sauce. Can't have dumplings without it.|
|This...I have no name for this. We called it "Da Lu Mien" It's just super delicious =3|
|Spinach, ham, tomato, havarti cheese omlette with sprouted toast and a spinach salad on the side. |
|There are layers in this plate. Normal pancakes and the gluten-free ones. Served with fresh berries!|

We've been having some really simple and delicious Chinese dinners too!
