Homemade dumplings were perfect for a Saturday night. I made it with Chinese preserved vegetables, which my parents bought in China in June this year, and pork. They reminded me the pork buns that I used to have in China every morning. They don’t need any sauce to dip with. However, out of a habit, I made a soy sauce, vinegar, Sriracha, and green onions.
I had Buckler non-alcoholic beer with the meal. I think this is the best non-alcoholic beer in the world.
I paired Lively Up Yourself by Bob Marley. Very relaxing. It reminded me this Japanese place Alex and I used to go to in Northern Jersey. They always played Bob Marley’s songs, when we were there.
We finally survived another week of busy work. Alex’s bartender half came out and made a Moscow Mule with Grey Goose, ginger beer and freshly squeezed lime juice in a copper mug. Very refreshing. I felt very lucky that I could enjoy an authentic cocktail at home.
I chose We Are One by Kiss. Not to mention we are going to watch Kiss and Def Leppard concert soon. Can’t wait.
Please let me know how you think about this pairing.
On a coolish summer night, my husband and I decided to go for a walk after a tiring day. I was craving for some cheesecake (NY style, of course!). We went to the Carlos Bakery, which we thought still open with some people lined up in the front. However, it was closed. We walked over to Aspen Marketplace and got a mini NY Cheesecake from the bakery department.
Afterwards, we went to the Hoboken boardwalk. While passing by Giannone Wine & Liquor Co., we decided to get a small bottle of wine. The Chocolate Shop wine caught our eye. We thought cheesecake plus chocolate is a perfect combination with wine. This was the first time that we were trying a flavored wine.
Finally, we reached the water front and found a bench with a baby robin standing on it, who seemed got hurt. Alex tried to feed it with cheesecake but it refused and flew away.
We were looking for the right song to pair with the dessert and the wine. Then we found Hysteria by Def Leppard, which I thought it was perfect for the moment. We were enjoying the food, the wine, the music and the Manhattan skylines.
Please let me know how you think about this pairing. Welcome to comments! Cheers!
