Diary from China – Tuesday, July 26, 2005; Shanghai
Excerpts from the Diary: Anyway, the looooong day started with Stephan making one-eyed Jacks for everyone (a slice of bread with a hole in the middle, fried with an egg in the hole) ...
[Later] we got home and helped Grandma make wontons and watched her make the wonton soup for lunch (best wonton soup I've had!)....
Stephan introduces "one-eyed jacks" to China – Wei's cousin Huang Haixia seems to like it.
We learn to make dumplings for lunch from preeminent cooks, Wei's grandmother Jiang Xiaoju and mother Xu Jiamei.
