Tree trimming treats 2.0

Throwback to 2012: crab and cheese puffs, anyone?

Always contemplating the perfect night trimming the tree: something lovely to sip on paired with a little nibble.

We’ve tried welsh rarebit bites, New York pizza, even an afternoon with oven baked hotdogs.

But we have to credit the wonderfully talented Jennifer 8 Lee, she of the delightful Fortune Cookie Chronicles and Search for General Tso, for making us obsess over turkey dumplings.

And really wanting them at Christmas time.

After all, Christmas and Chinese takeout is a time-honoured tradition:

Says The Atlantic: “For many Jewish Americans, the night before Christmas conjures up visions, not of sugar plums, but plum sauce slathered over roast duck or an overstocked plate of beef lo mein, a platter of General Tso’s, and (maybe) some hot and sour soup.”

Maybe it’s time to finally pull the pin and whip up Jennifer 8 Lee’s version of turkey dumplings.

Or Ming Tsai’s Turkey dumplings with cranberry soy dip

That thwack! moment in A Christmas Story, or, Peking duck appetizer.

While we are on a turkey roll:

Calgary Petroleum Club’s turkey meatballs stuffed with brie:

Sausage balls subbed with turkey sausage, perhaps?
