Incredibly innovative use of scraps!  The results are so colourful - wonderful!

Oh goodness - sometimes the aches and pains don't show up until a few hours later - I hope they aren't too bad, and get checked out if they persist - sometimes things fracture and people don't even realize it until later, when they wonder why the pain isn't getting better.

A few more rows and details and I may be done with mini-me #2.  Then to take pics and print out the digital mini-mes.  Then the card bases and factoids....

Boy - do these bring back memories.  You show real dedication - these are not per meal things to make just because of the effort involved.  My mother and grandmothers and aunts would have spent the better part of a week or two rinsing out the leaves, picking through them.  Rinsing out the rice, and picking out the stones.  Going through the mung beans, picking out the stones.  Then soaking and soaking and soaking.  Then cleaning off the salted duck eggs, and cracking and separating the yolks... cutting the chinese sausage... marinating the pork belly... etc, etc.  Then on the day of making them - the hours and hours of making them, packing them tight, folding the leaves, wrapping them, etc.  Then the cooking.  Then, because the grandmoms were very thrifty, the cleaning and drying of the intact lotus leaves to reuse!!!  My mother almost never makes less than a hundred of them.

I personally have vowed to enjoy them when my mom makes them and she sends us a dozen or so.  Other than that, I will make the steamed sticky rice instead - use many of the same ingredients, but able to make smaller batches with less work!  I am a lazy cook at heart.

Oh good - well, in that it's not just me.  My internet has been iffy for a few days and I thought it was that also.

Anyone else having trouble with the thumbnail pictures - I keep getting the green square with the "trouble accessing image" notice.


I can see the posts themselves fine, with pics, but it would be nice to see the preview.
