Following our adventures at MT Supermarket last Saturday, Bea Dazzler's husband joined us at UnScurvyGirl's house for an evening of home-cooked goodness.
Bea Dazzler made the tasty dumplings pictured above. I cannot overestimate how good they were.
In an effort to avoid contracting Scurvy for the second time in her life (hee hee), UnScurvyGirl made ramen from scratch.

Following our taste-tastic homemade meal, UnScurvyGirl and Bea Dazzler introduced me to Mochi ice cream balls.
Mochi ice cream is a Japanese dessert made from sticky rice with an ice cream filling. It is golf-ball sized and comes in various flavors. We had mango and red bean mochi.
UnScurvyGirl and Bea Dazzler are big fans of the mochi. Me? Not so much. However, I am a fan of FORTUNE COOKIES, a big bag of which I had purchased earlier in the day...
Bea Dazzler's not-a-fortune: "You love a good challenge."
UnScurvyGirl's not-a-fortune: "You add an aesthetic quality to everything you do."
My ACTUAL FORTUNE: "Good ideas will spring forth naturally from your mind." (Crossing my fingers & toes since I can sure use some good ideas!)
Bea Dazzler's husband's ACTUAL FORTUNE: "You[r] present plans are going to succeed." (Very topical, as he had just finished regaling us with his plans.)
While it is rare for 50% of one night's cookie inserts to include actual fortunes, I can't end this post without also commenting on UnScurvyGirl's terrific peanut butter cookie sandwiches- essentially homemade Nutter Butters. I gorged on these that night and again the next, as she sent me home with leftovers. Best day and night I've had in quite some time!
