Is there anyone in the world who doesn’t like a dumpling?

For whatever reason, today has been particularly hard. So, to distract myself from my grief, I asked AO to go on a walk with me at lunch. I wanted to walk down to the furniture store on West Wash in the hopes of finding all of the perfect pieces to fill up our new home. That didn’t happen, but I do like the shop (and am excited about the new consignment companion shop they’re in the process of opening) and the walk was nice. On the way back up the hill to work, I suggested we take a detour and check out Paul’s Pel’meni restaurant that we always talk about going to, but never do. It was sort of a strange choice for me because I ate AO’s homemade pelmeni the night before. But, really, who could ever eat enough dumplings? Actually, at this very moment, I’ll say that I am dumpling-sated. Maybe even saturated. These dumplings are taste-a-licious, though, and I highly suggest you get over there and get yourself some.


Very simple menu. Do you want meat or potatoes or both? Obviously, both is the right answer. Do you want the works? If you’re me, who is boring, you don’t chance it, but you sample AO’s (sans sour cream) instead. If you’re everyone else in the world, you probably do the works.


The works. Pretty right? It was very pretty until he added the demonic sour cream. Then it got a little icky looking for my taste.


Boring? Nah. Tasty!


Despite this cool sign, Gorham Dumplings is not the name of the joint.

    I didn’t realize you were back to blogging! I’ve been to Paul’s once, and it was gooood. I was actually thinking about popping down there this week to get some frozen pelmeni for dinner. Especially now that they disclosed the secret hot sauce combo on Facebook. 🙂

Happy birthday to my mom, @marylloyd9165. She’s given me more than I deserve and tolerates me more than she should. At this point, I know it may be more because I have some control over when she sees her grandchild, but I’ll take it. She’s the strongest woman I know and my role model. Happy birthday, mom. We love you! ❤️❤️❤️ . . . And I’d give anything to look that cute at any age. #mymommyhero #moms #mymom #myrolemodel
Damage. @costco contracted with #InnoveILogistics to deliver our @lgusa washer & dryer. But instead of delivering the products we paid for, the @costco delivery company, apparently run by @sears crashed into our house, damaged it, and sped off with our appliances. Ugh. #costco #customerservice #whatismytimeworth #disrespectful #damage #damageclaim #housedamage #nodelivery #LG #disappointed #shouldvegonelocal #searsdelivery
Slowlllllllly, but progress. These go to 96”! @cb2 @sherwinwilliams #cb2 #sherwinwilliams #olympuswhite #newhouse #freshcoatofpaint #thesegotoeleven
