tasting is half the fun
You know something is going to be good when you can feel the smell (or rather, the smell makes you ... feel). I went to Chinatown today with Diana and got some baked goods. I'm not totally sure what the name of one of the things I got was, but it had walnuts on the top, so I'll call it a walnut cake. As I brought the cake to my mouth, I could smell the buttery sweetness, which made me predict the delicate sweetness and tenderness that would enter my mouth. And it did. [drool] I'm still eating it now, actually.
Diana wanted to go to Lin's Dumpling House, which we went to more than a month ago (I remember the day since it was before we saw Magnet at Pianos; one of the best days EVER). Their vegetable dumplings are excellent. They have a lot more than dumplings but their dumplings are great, so just get those.
Even though I had eaten enough to last me the rest of the day, I ended up finishing the dumplings I bought last Wednesday for dinner. Luckily my roommate ate two of them, so I didn't totally pig out (I ate 6). I'm glad she finally ate some of my food instead of me always eating hers. ;P
Still savouring the cake. Mm. Tomorrow in food lab we're making bread and muffins, which means I shouldn't eat anything before hand. I guess if I'm desparate I'll dip into my persimmon stash...er, which is just three because I ate two of them already. Persimmons are the yum.
