That was good post I felt so apart of it except not being able to sample the food ;-).


Hi Bill - I wish I could email you a sample!

Jeff C

I guess you can go home again... for a little while.


Touching, Kirk. Very touching!

ed (from Yuma)

Thanks Kirk.

This was an extra special post. I feel lucky to have read about the special meal. Thanks again for sharing with the rest of us.


the walls must have absorbed the years of hospitality


Hi Lynnea - I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

I guess you can Jeff.

Thanks so much MrM. It was a very memorable meal.

Hi Ed - Thanks as always for reading.... I hope you're mending well.

Hi RONW - Yes, it must've.....


Everything looked delish, and I'm amazed that they accomplished all that cooking with only a two burner stove. Gulp, big ol' honkin' lump in my throat, why are they destroying the old family home?


Aww, home is where the heart is...or food. It will be sad to see that house go away.

Did you get the recipe for the dumplings?


what a great post, I particularly enjoyed your warm and fuzzy ending!


Hi Kirk, again it's really too bad about the house being torn down. I think these posts you're doing are especially wonderful to keep the memories. The second to the last photo of the kitchen is beautiful.


Hi AZ - I believe the whole street is being razed, and will be replaced with apartments and condos. The location is prime for development.

Hi Tammy - Jiaozi is something that has been made by hand for many decades....... there are no recipes, everything is done by using the senses.

Hi Kat - I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

Hi Dennis - Yeah, I made sure to include that photo because it's one of my favorites.


What a great tribute and permanent record. Now the memory won't fade. You write so well.


Hi Cathy - Geeez... you flatter me. This was an easy one to write.


What a great last meal of a great trip. I'm sure the Missus grandmother was there in spirit and smiling.


Hi Carol - I think you're right...
