    I give you.................................the humble dumpling.

    What? Yes, the dumpling. Every ethnic group of food has a form. And they are all.......delightful!

    Think about it.

    China, you got the Soup Dumpling. Which is the ultimate. And all of those other types of dim sum dumplings. You got won tons and Har gow
    Japan you got Shumai and Gyoza
    Korea has Mandu
    Italy...Ravioli and Tortellini, Gnocchi
    Eastern Europe Pierogi, Knoedel
    Latin America. Empanadas
    India Samosas
    Jewish Kreplach
    America Chicken and dumplings, Apple Dumplings plus all of the above.

    Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.

    You guys are missing the point. Who the hell would pick "jambalaya" over dumplings. I mean, you can have a different type of dumpling, in style, ethnicity, every day of the month. Jambalaya, which is not even close to the best Cajun/Creole has to offer, is just Jambalaya.

    I always wear some sort of bib while eating pasta. There is no way I am getting thru the meal without dribbling down the front of my shirt.

    You know what makes this Covid scare so difficult: no more bat.

    Thankfully there's the Impossible Bat.

    This is Mrs Buffett, sorry for the delay.
    My bicycle training ride with my personal trainer was moved from 11am to later.

    We let Mr Buffett tag along today since my bad planning had him home today so it was a slower ride all the way around .Haha.

    So I purchase Corned Beef at Giant before St Patties day on sale. The. more you buy the better the price. I can get the price down from $5.70 something/ lb. , to $3 something / lb before St Patties, to like $1.80 /lb with a Giant Card after buying $25 of stuff.

    The quality and price is great.

    I've paid more at other places and the quality was the same as Giant.

    "save a horse ride a cowboy "
    Signed: Mrs Buffett

    I bought two a couple of weeks ago to make Rubens. I normally don't eat something so saturated in salt, but done right, it's one of my favorite sandwiches.

    I'm gonna go with meat stew. Slow cooked meat cooked in it's own broth with veggies roasting alongside it. You can change it so much depending on seasoning too. Also another thing that just about every culture does.
