I mentioned before that I am a Girl Scout leader for my daughter's Junior troop.  Our meeting last week was snowed out, so we rescheduled for this week.  Of course the meeting that got snowed out was one we were completely prepared for and had everything purchased and ready well ahead of time.

We are talking about Chinese New Year today, since it officially became the "Year of the Tiger" on February 14.  My co-leader has all the crafts set and ready to go, and I just finished the "snack" which I will reheat once we get to the meeting.  My troop would be happy to eat the entire meeting if we let them.

We are having sesame-soy noodles, jiaozi (steamed dumplings) and mandarin oranges.  The noodles and dumplings are both homemade.  I had never made dumplings before and was surprised by just how easy they were to make.  I taste-tested (I had to make sure they were okay to serve), and they are fabulous!  Both recipes came from the Family Fun website.

Have a great day!  I'll be back soon with another card and blanket I made.
