Last weekend, our city hosted a marathon, we didn’t run, because we all know how I feel about that. Instead, we had a food marathon! Friday night we made dumplings with some Taiwanese friends, and Saturday we made Hamburgers with some American friends. I have to say, it was so much better than an actual marathon.
Dumplings are my favorite Taiwanese food. They’re so yummy, and always make for a quick meal. Friday night, our friend brought over the ingredients, and we all got to make dumplings and then eat them of course! We made so many dumplings! Nick estimates we made around 70! We fried some, boiled some, and froze some for later. 🙂
Hamburgers are Nick’s favorite American foods, and unfortunately where live in Taiwan, a good burger is hard to come buy. The best our city has to offer is McDonalds, and if you ask Nick, that is a sad excuse for a hamburger. In order for Nick to get his burger fix, we made hamburgers ourselves! We invited some of the other American teachers in our city, and they were just as happy as we were to have a taste of home. Unfortunately, I was too busy making and eating burgers to take any pictures, but just take my word for it, they looked and tasted delicious!
