Spring really made its presence felt last week. It was SO HOT we had to turn the AC on a couple of evenings to cool down the house. Luckily that went away and we are back to cool(ish) spring weather again. But it also was a great time for the garden. We got to pull up two radishes and plucked a few strawberries. Sadly my sunflower seeds didn’t seem to make it this year. Maybe it was too wet when I planted them. Or they just got eaten!! I’ll have to try again! But in the meantime I’ve added a zucchini plant, a chili plant and a Persian cucumber to our garden!
Also last week I decided to join the #AsianLitBingo challenge and made up a too-ambitious list!
Our favourite dumpling place (with the best red bean pancake and a so-yummy bread with condensed milk) has closed down! We had to try a new-to-us handmade noodle place a few doors down but weren’t disappointed. Great noodle soups! Beef bao, potstickers and chive dumplings!

I always wondered what potted meat (from all those British children’s books) tasted like – and here’s a recipe, and it doesn’t sound too bad (The Guardian)
