Peyton: There are so many flavors going on in my mouth...

This is what the sky looked like when I woke up today. It is this view, the cool breeze and the smell of flowers in the front lawn that keeps me outside on the porch.

Peyton decided she'd like to make pork dumplings for dinner last night. Dinner takes quite a bit longer when your sous chef is 7 years old and her assistant is 3, but it's definitely worth the wait.

The compromise: goutie (fried dumplings) for the stubby fingered eater. Peyton's specialty which she learned from her Godmother and my cousin, Char.

We saved some dumplings for a soup to compliment the rainy and cold weather outside. Light broth, mushrooms, pechay, lobster bits, eggplants, pork dumplings and onions & garlic. Everyone agreed, dinner was worth the wait. I think Peyton has some potential, I may just offer her a contract.
One thing never changes in Papago. After dinner there is a strange phenomenon that occurs right before it is time to clear the table and wash the dishes. The children go missing.

In other totally random and awesome news:
