Dumpling is one of my favorite Asian appetizers. I can eat it every day. I just had seafood dumplings and noodle soup with shrimps and beef balls for lunch. I didn’t make the dumplings myself, though. But I do make it myself sometimes when I’m in the mood for it. I just bought the seafood dumplings from an Oriental shop in Chinatown the other day. It just makes my life easier. Cooking and preparing Asian food can take time. It depends on the dishes you make as well. Some dishes take no time at all to make, but some do need hours of preparation.
So, I bought some bags of frozen, ready-made dumplings, beef balls for the noodle soups, and the like. Then I don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen. I can utilize the time to work on my screenplay as much as I can instead. So once a week or once in a while, I like taking a trip to Chinatown to buy the necessity stuff for Asian cooking. Because, I can’t live without Asian food. No matter how long I have been living in Europe, I still eat Asian food almost daily.
