Shrimp dumplings

Yesterday I had a serious craving for dumplings. They are my go to comfort food. Next time, I would add some water chestnuts to the shrimp and ginger mixture for a little crunch. I bought the shrimp already peeled and deveined and bought ready made dumpling wrappers to speed the process along. A pound of shrimp apparently makes a lot of dumplings, so will be enjoying them again tonight! Have a great weekend!

The Splendid tote on top caught my eye last week. Cute, summery and could possibly hold all of my stuff. Two other fun options, from Gap and Milly.

Pea shoots

A nice sign of spring- pea shoots! Last night we had them with salmon and chanterelles.

Sunday supper

Last night we made our first foray into shellfish with steamed mussels in a white wine based broth. We used a Muscadet to cook with and as our pairing. The mussels cook surprisingly quickly once scrubbed and rinsed. We served with grilled french bread, broccolini in a sherry vinaigrette and a steamed artichoke. For dessert, I baked a shaker ginger lemon pie, recipe from the Cheap Tart Bakery, found on Tasting Table. Easy to make, but beware, the filling needs to be refrigerated overnight so start a day early!
