Regular Random – Five Minutes with Dumplings

OMG I love dumplings. I think I could have them for every meal.

Welcome to RegularRandom – sorry I’m a day late, but today (Monday) feels like Sunday since it’s a Public Holiday here for the Queen’s Birthday.

Let’s get the rules out of the way:

  • choose a subject
  • spend 5 minutes photographing that subject
  • shoot from as many angles as you can
  • try not to interfere with the subject or scene
  • post your results with the tag RegularRandom
  • link back to this post so that we can see your results!

This week, dumplings! I ordered dumplings on Friday night (I might just order them again tonight!). And I put a post on Facebook saying “I decree tonight Dumpling Night!”

Then I ate my dumplings and promptly fell asleep on the couch – it was a huge week last week!

I woke up the next to a comment from one of my friends saying “this is where you should be posting food pics”. My friend loves dumplings too.

So on Saturday night, after an epic photo shoot with Julie (more to come on that later), I came home and re-heated the leftovers to perfection and set up this little scene.

Needless to say, they were almost cold when I was done shooting them, but they were delicious none-the-less.

These are Pan-fried Pork Dumplings, or Gyoza. Yum! My favourite. From a little place in Brunswick called I Love Dumplings (perfectly named for me!!).

Will you join in?! We’d love to see you.

  1. The Polish version – pierogi – were a favourite in Warsaw hot or cold. You’ve paid due tribute! Glisten and artfully placed spring onion slices, and then that last one with it’s browned bottom. Great!

    Yay! Like Meg I thought pierogi ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d rather use a cream scone or something cold to start with, DesleyJane but it’s a delicious idea.

    Hang on a minute – you Aussies who actually would like to get rid of the Queen get a public holiday? Whilst us Brits don’t! What is going on? BTW love the dumplings though I don’t think I have ever had any.

        Well no I understand that not all of you are in favour of a republic, but I still think it is mean that WE don’t get a public holiday and you do!

          I absolutely agree! I actually think it’s weird that you don’t get one. Very strange.
