Harvest Monday - Happy New Year!

I'm back from my self-imposed hiatus from blogging.  Still not sure how committed I am to continuing to do this as a routine, so if you are a follower here's the caveat: I won't be regular!

I'm amazed and pleased that I do have a harvest to share on this first Harvest Monday hosted by Daphne's Dandelions each Monday.  Sarah made dinner for us on New Year's Eve and it required bok choy which we went out to the garden to harvest by flashlight.  These were grown from seeds Sarah sent from China to Emily and which Emily then shared with me this summer.
 Sarah used the bok choy to make a Chinese noodle which were like dumplings when dropped into the boiling water.  It was a mixture of flour, water, egg, and diced bok choy.

 She also made a lettuce dumpling: ground pork seasoned with ginger, garlic and other secret ingredients then placed into a lettuce leaf.  These were steamed.

The noodles were served with stir fried carrots and broccoli and drizzled with a hot oil mixture. 

Every last bit was devoured!  A delicious way to ring in the new year.
