    Margo, if you have dumplings already made it wouldn’t be so bad. If not, well, you have to make dumplings.

    I’ve eyed bagel recipes before, but haven’t actually made them. So, I third the motion, please share your experience/recipe!
    Also, Rachel, I checked out the Korean dumpling soup – it sounds delicious, but looks like a lot of work. In your experience, is it?

    The jap chae and the chicken pilau…yum! Haven’t had either of those in a long time. Have a delicious week!

    PS – My parentheses ended up in the wrong place. Mandu is dumpling, not specifically dumpling soup.

    If you want to stick with Korean, you could substitute a mandu (dumpling soup) – here’s one recipe – If you look for more recipes, some sites will spell it mandu, mandoo, etc.

    You’re *making* bagels? Please, when you do, post the recipe. We eat them like crazy in my house and I’d love to make some one cool weekend morning.
