Tonight I finally got around to making the dinner I had been planning for quite some time: Kansas City BBQ ribs. Cornbread and coleslaw were from scratch, but the beans were canned organic (embellished with bacon and brown sugar).

The requisite Chinese meal for the evening was shiao long bao. My parents taught me how to make them (very similar to potstickers, but the dough is different). They were excellent and I got to use my bamboo steamer and new electric wok (the wok was purchased mainly for hot pot, but it works for the steamer too). [Did I mention that McGuckin is having a HUGE sale? I love that place.]
