Yum Cha (Drink Tea)

My first attempt ... Chris, please dont laugh.
Very tasty, even if not so pretty.
Fresh Spring Rolls with shrimp, Seafood Gow Gee, Pork & Lettuce Parcels
There is a Lemon Garlic dipping sauce for the Pork Parcels and a Vietnamese Dipping sauce for the Spring rolls. Served with a nice Pu-erh Tea...
The Seafood Gow Gee are so well seasoned they dont need anything else.

Super Cookies

We were going to a Super Bowl party so we needed to make something to take with us. So we made cookies. The footballs are just the rice crispy treats made with cocoa crispies and shaped into football shapes, with white frosting for the lacing.

Then we made some sugar cookies too. This is rolling out the dough and cutting the helmet shapes.

Baked cookies.

And frosted cookies. Some team logos are way harder to do in frosting than other team logos. But it all tastes good, and that's what really counts.
