The plum dumplings are ready and they are - almost - worth every second of the process. As a child, plum dumplings have been one of those treats that marked the end of summer vacation, and the arrival of the new school year.

School starts in two weeks and I haven’t even gotten to the back to school shopping. Yes. I AM that mom.

The more I think about it, the more envious I become of all the moms whose kids wear uniforms. Or of all the moms who write a check for school supplies and send it along with their kids on the first day of school. And since I’m at it, also of all the moms whose kids are old enough to go shopping on their own.

So what about you? Are you done with all back to school shopping already? Or do you wait until the last possible minute?

    I never had plum dumplings. I think I read about them in a nursery rhyme and thought they were made up. They look yummy!!!!

    Its been a great fun summer but just 2 weeks left and it does feel ike it’s absolutley flown by. Travels and summer camps have taken up half of the summer and the rest home relaxing seeing friends and enjoying the sunshine.

    And those plum dumpings look and sound delicious. Enjoy!

    They look so good! And I am a cling to the end of summer kind of girl, for sure. My little one is ready for school, the oldest is not at all. I love fall, but the summer is my favorite time of year.
