Friday we got the opportunity to make dumplings from scratch and then eat them for dinner. Over the past 3 weeks that we have been here, I have had dumplings a couple of times and I really liked them. I was excited that we would be able to make our own. There were some people that were rolling out the dough and cutting and shaping it into little round circles. We would then get the dough and put the meat or vegetables in it. I learned that the Chinese students often make dumplings on their own and they taught us what to do. There was a very little amount of food that we put in the dough. Then we learned how to pouch the dough up and they were ready to cook. It took awhile for some people to catch on but it was a fun experience. About a half hour later, the dumplings were cooked and we got to eat the dumplings for dinner. They definitely were not as good as ones made in a restaurant but it was really fun to eat something that I had made from scratch.
