How can I be sad when I have breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Makeshift Chinese

This meal was somewhat inspired by the Sesame Slaw recipe I saw on Budget Bytes. Yup, it's something like -2° Fahrenheit outside, and we're making salad.

Salad with cucumber, cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, and onions

This was just one of those meals where I tried to utilize whatever was in my fridge/freezer as much as possible. We still had a small amount of frozen dumplings left over from the dumpling party. We also had one piece of sweet and spicy chicken left.

The bottoms of the dumplings are visible this time!

Oh, and lots of salad dressing packets. I keep buying various salad mixes that come with dressing packets, and then only end up using the veggies since I put them on my tacos.

Can you guess which plate is mine and which is my sister's?

It was a pretty delicious makeshift Chinese meal.

Action shot!

Of course, now we have a bunch of leftover salad. But you know what's great about cabbage? You can always stir fry it...

Dumpling Party

I know they call them "pot stickers" but you really don't want them to stick to the pot. Because then you can't take them out of the pot, and you end up with dumplings that are missing bottoms.

Still delicious.

We switched to a non-stick pan for the second batch. I guess you can't really tell from the picture though, since the bottoms are hidden.

Note to self: include the dipping sauce in the picture next time.

One of my friends made a pretty salad to go with the dumplings. Apparently he was supposed to use green onions, but Aldi was out of them so he used red ones instead. Red onion is not a good substitute for green onion.

Also still delicious.
