tong yuan tradition


For the first time in 30 years, I went to school (aka: work) on Christmas day as did Lawrance.  In fact, since he didn't come home till after 10, there was no point in cooking a special meal.  So, in order to still do something special, after lighting our advent candles and opening gifts, we made tong yuan

We also made these sticky sweet dumplings right after we decorated our Christmas tree in late November. 

Below is a video of Lawrance showing you how to prepare tong yuan.

Merry Christmas from the Wu's

dear blog

dear blog,

i miss you.  it seems like ages since we last had a good chat.

but, well, i've been a bit busy . . . with five senior projects to oversee and 60 some-odd writing students  . . . plus, christmas parties to host . . . well, i've had my hands full. 

not to mention the best thing of all . . . I used to come home to an empty apartment, take care of my dog and then enjoy time with you, now, I come home and well . . . my hubby comes home just a few minutes later.  it's wonderful. 

sorry if you feel neglected.  you've been an important part of my life, i used to think I couldn't imagine not having time to blog.  but, that dat has arrived.  senior projects are almost due so maybe I'll have a bit more free time soon.

missing you,
