Edda is still running a pretty high fever today – I’m hoping it breaks tonight, but it’s been a struggle to keep her happy all day. I’m typing this in the dark, listening to Edda breathe, Ruby snore and hoping that Vince falls asleep before 8:30, which is not happening.
Six hours before she became feverish, we were at dim sum with the rolling carts! I know that this isn’t particularly exciting for those living in NYC, SF or LA, but I consider finding the rolling cart dim sum in DC to be a super exciting event! My friend, V. has been on the lookout for the carts for months now and I hadn’t been able to find any dim sum carts anywhere in the DC area. But I finally located the elusive dim sum and we ended up gorging ourselves silly.
And it was fabulous, I haven’t had it in years. It was fabulous except for the dessert, which generally is awful. Chinese people are good at preparing meat, not so good at preparing sweets. We tried this rather patriotic jello type dish. We decided it tasted like suntan lotion.
