The dumpling cookoff was held at the Adult Dream Home (Ash & Maddie's) on the 17th of November. It was small enough that we were all able to sit at the dining table, like a dinner party.

Liang: "buddha dumplings" filled with white & wood ear mushrooms, tofu, seaweed, & chives; served with vinegar-soy sauce (not pictured)
