1. Mmm...: 21:32

Homemade shrimp dumplings with chili garlic sauce in wonton noodle soup - chicken broth with leafy vegetables, spring onions, and just a hint of ginger...

If I haven't been blogging frequently, it's because the food's been too good. =)

2. Tea party: 21:36

I had my first tea party at 666 today. I really enjoyed having people over for tea and conversation!

I served roiboos tea (with milk and cube sugar!), the banana bread Wayne baked (yum!), and Belgian chocolate biscuits. Gabriel's vegan, so I offered him dragonfruit (which no one else had tried). I also brought out tortilla chips and spicy black bean dip. I also prepared tablea hot chocolate, which went well with the brown sugar cubes.

Next step: get more mugs so that I'm not constantly washing... ;)

Feel free to join me for tea next Sunday from 3:00 to 6:00. I'm going to try baking!

3. Steadycam: 21:44

Yesterday, Wayne helped Quinn build a steadycam for her film projects. They picked up some parts from the hardware store and built a steadycam for ~$20 following instructions on the Internet. Yay D.I.Y.! (Me, I stayed indoors and read Miss Manners.)

Quinn's really excited about shooting film. Her Super-8 seems to be broken, but she might borrow one to shoot the party on Saturday.

It was good to catch up with her, too. Girl talk over green tea... =)
