2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 8,000 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.

Siu Mai

We hit the jackpot steaming 60 siu mais tonight. The hubs said he has not eaten so much siu mai his whole life. He said “best dinner ever” with a cream ale and a chocolate Santa lollipop for dessert.

Ingredients for the siu mai included minced bamboo shoots, black fungus, Shitake mushrooms, pork belly, shrimp, ground pork, white pepper, black pepper, shaoxing jiu/ Chinese rice wine and fish sauce for seasoning, topped with chopped carrots. This is modified from a recipe shared by a wonderful church sister.

Makes for a good all siu mai Saturday dinner!

Have a great weekend everyone!
