creole shrimp, dumplings, and 2.5 sous chefs
One thing April and I decided before moving to HK, was that we wanted to have our team over for dinner on a weekly basis. As crazy as life can be with three young children, in a different culture, living across the world from most of the support structure we have known --- we know that simple things, like sharing a meal, can be some of the most meaningful time spent with others. This week, April gave the boys an assignment: "Come up with the name and menu of a restaurant" -- well, they did come up with the name "The Seasoned Dumpling Restuarant", however the menu was not so Chinese. More like spicy creole. (April came up with that part). They did such a great job. It was so fun to see their little hearts, and Calebs not-so-quiet voice come to life. We are so thankful to live and work with such a great group of men and women here in HK.
