Potstickers For The New Year


Pork & Vegetable Potstickers made with dumpling dough, ground pork, green cabbage, celery, onion, and a mix of ginger, garlic, and black pepper.

Well my New Year’s resolution to eat a little healthier went right down the drain as soon as I woke up this morning.  The first thing I stuffed in my face for the new year was one of those gigantic plumpalicious cinnamon rolls from the diner—or at least HALF of one.

To be fair, I didn’t buy it today—it was leftover from last night.  So is it still technically my fault?  Should I have known to throw it in the trash at midnight last night?  Isn’t it still considered 2013 food, technically?  I did eat a bowl of oatmeal this morning right afterwards to try to wash it out of my system.

Let’s move on to my non-homemade potstickers-from-a-box.  This is what I resorted to since I spent 90% of my day trying to figure out all aspects of my new camera—so I wasn’t in much of a cooking mood after reading that lengthy instruction manual.  Who knew a wee camera could have 252 pages of instruction on CD to accompany itself?!!

And with some of the pictures I’ve taken today, I swear my cell phone did a much better job.  I’m sure it was user-error and there was probably a setting I should have left well enough alone.  But I’m still in the learning and playing phase with said camera.

Enjoy my first blog photos with the new camera while I still try to get the hang of it.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, spend your day reading a 252-page instruction manual.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Nothing wrong with breaking a New Year’s resolution a few hours after midnight.  It happens.

  1. thinking I’ll pass on reading a lengthy manual. Will let my husband do that–more his thing. But I’m applauding your cinnamon roll and potstickers. We always have a bag (of storebought) on hand as it’s my oldest daughter’s favorite food. Quick and easy to cook up for sure. Happy second day of the new year 🙂

    1. Trust me—I didn’t want to read a manual that long but I knew I wouldn’t know about every feature of my camera if I didn’t. And if I spent the money, I want to know how to work EVERYTHING on it! Store-bought potstickers do make a quick meal and weren’t too bad either.

  2. my wife is from Japan and she makes these very often the pic also reminds me of my time spent in Japan and eating these with bowls of noodles with egg and beef in a special soup
