again i took kimchi to work with no ill after-effects. there was also rice, seasoned mung bean sprouts, and some toasted seaweed. the only thing i'm afraid of is when i have to get close to my patients. maybe they can smell my ferment-y breath but are too polite (typical danes) to say so. better start taking a toothbrush to work. x:
i spent sunday afternoon biking to the asian shop through a bit of lazily falling snow and then making dumplings. cycling through snow is great; your body warms up well while you take in the scenery. there were little kids playing ice hockey on the lakes and i saw a lot of people skating in the middle. as for the dumplings, i learned my lesson from last time and took the easy way out by paying 20kr for a package of dumpling wrappers. of course it was much easier and faster. the filling was basically the same; tofu, spring onion, shiitake, and bean sprouts. i can't wait to steam/fry some and take it in my work lunch!
on new years day i spent a good hour or so meditatively folding dumplings with my aunts and even the dane tried his hand at it. i was so proud of him! (:
