Weekend Cooking

I bought a pasta machine last week. Today is the second time I'm using it, and am starting to get the hang of it. I used it to make pasta last week, had a hard time fiddling with it, poor hubby had to wait 2 hrs for a plate of pasta, poor thing.

I don't want to see a 'white elephant' sitting in the house, so must make full use of it right? I made these 鍋貼, literally translated as 'Pot-Stickers', which are like meat dumplings. I made the skin using Gina's recipe, using the pasta machine (of course) to roll out the dough. So here's my first attempt at a Chinese appetizer.


The above will, of course, NOT satisfy my hubby's big appetite as a 'rice' person. The following Claypot Chicken Rice recipe is also from Gina. A big thanks to you Gina.

Adeline, me too! Haven't gone back there to eat for a long time.

Jadepearl, thanks. By the way, I don't use a breadmachine for my breads, just my good old Kitchenaid for the kneading :)
