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.
