There is currently a city made out of cardboard in my living room. Tape, scissors, markers and shreds of boxes are strewn about. I couldn’t be happier, really. This is what it looks like for a 10, 6 and 3 year old to play together and get along for a hot minute. Summer break had me planning a part time sitter to come to the house a couple times a week so I could keep working, but as luck would have it, these amazing kids have been so into playing together that I haven’t needed the sitter. Unreal right?
They have their own routine which allows me to be at the computer in the morning and recipe testing in the afternoon. I’d like the thank our back yard, dog, pool, and insanely cool imaginations for this. It’s been the best summer EVER. We’ve taken vacations, gone hiking, swam every day, created lots of new recipes for you, and even incorporated my personal favorite time of the day- Book Time. That’s right. For 30 serene minutes we all grab a book and read. No exceptions. It was a rough go at first, some whining and mild temper tantrums thrown. That’s not true, one of the fits was definitely a 10.0 on the Richter scale. But it all leveled out and we found our balance.
So much balance, that a city of card board was built this morning without me having to think of it and explain it like it’s the best thing since sliced bread. Josh came up with the idea and he got so into it that his brother and sister followed suit.
These potstickers are one of the many wonderful smells of summer for me. They are made of real food, strong flavor and I’m especially proud of the gluten free wonton wrappers I developed. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
There are links to ingredients that can be found online plus I linked where I got my tortilla press.
