Pork Siu Mai/Shoe My/Shoo Mie

'Ello Govnah.

I'm a bit peeved right now. My Body and I are at war. Not just, Mind says "Run a 10K", Body says "no way, Jose." Instead, my body wants to be sick but that is not on my schedule at the moment. I don't want to be hocking up loogies, blowing my nose every 5.5 seconds until the skin from my nose peels off, or having nasty mouth. I just want to be a normal girl, gaw dangit! Seems as though Body does not give a flying shit. So, I will drown my body with Green Monsters, green tea, and cough drops while acting like the biggest baby so my hubby will feel sorry for me and do all the chores, cooking, and laundry. ::crossing fingers that hubby reads this::

Besides being sick, I've been having very strong cravings for one thing... Chinese food. What the what? Now before you start speculating that I am with child, I will tell you that I am in fact, not preggos. If I am, it must be a Chinese baby because all it wants is Chow Mein and Dim Sum. Lucy.... you have some splainin' to do.

Honey Walnut Shrimp. One of the best things on earth.
Besides begging my hubby to take me to Panda Inn, I also felt the sudden urge to make some dumplings. I made them before, but to keep in line with my resolutions I decided to try a new recipe. Easy, quick, and delicious. What more can you want out of a recipe?

Pork Sui Mai
adapted from The Everything Rice Cooker Cookbook

1/2 pound ground pork
1 package of frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of pepper
1 tsp of soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 egg
wonton wrappers

1. Mix all of the ingredients together.  See how easy that is?

2. Put about a half to a full tablespoon of the mixture into a wonton wrapper. Make a little cup and squeeze.
3. Steam for about 7-10 minutes until cooked through.

If you're feeling crazy, you can also fry some!

And isn't it funny that TODAY is Chinese New Year? Maybe that's why I've been craving it all! Really, it's a plain coincidence because I had no idea.

Gung Hei Fat Choy!
Something daring, eh? ::strokes chin::


  1. This looks so yummy, I have to try it. I really do.

  2. Perfect! I was trying to think of some easy dim sum to make for CNY. This is it!

  3. Feel better soon! The dumplings look great!!

  4. Those dumplings look so good! And honey walnut shrimp is no joke. I've only had it once, and haven't stopped dreaming about it since.

    BTW, kudos for making dinner when you're feeling under the weather. I barely want to cook and clean the kitchen when I'm healthy! ;-)

  5. Lovely blog :)

  6. For the nose? Aquaphor ointment. It's greasy but will heal your nose in less than 24 hours. Tissues can ONLY be puffs with lotion. Otherwise, gross nose ensues. Get your Dr. to hook you up with a nasal spray so you can nip these things in the bud. Us teachers are so prone, and that has helped me get over colds/nasal stuff SO much faster and avoid the infections I ALWAYS seemed to get!!! FEEL BETTER SOON!

  7. Oh my goodness these look wonderful and I can't believe how simple they are to make! For some reason the little noodle cups would intimidate me but this is going on my to cook list!

  8. MMM honey walnut shrimp is my FAVE!! I made it once and didn't realize what kind of ingredients were in it... not the healthiest, but sooo good!


I want to know what you think...no really I do! Leave a comment, question, or just a hello. It'll make me SMILE!
